The smart person is going to be buying your salvage titled bike.
Pure Triumph is legit. Good folks and good service.
Allsports, a Triumph dealer in Decatur, AL has an orange Tiger 800 XC in stock, just putting it out here if anyone is interested. I went to the British in the Blue Ridge rally this past weekend and must have seen 10 new Tiger 800's and all were in white, this orange model is gorgeous.
there was a white xc on the floor at cyclebarn in lynwood last saturday
[btw: was anyone given a choice of knobbies at the dealership or is that an accessory?]
Two dashboard display questions, looked through my manual front to back and did searches and didn't come up with anything.
1. I'm doing my own service. How do you reset the Service Interval indicator (the little wrench) in the display? In the Setup menu I can get to a display that I think is showing "SIA" at the top and the negative mileage past the service interval at the bottom, but I can't figure out how to reset it. The manual just says the dealer will do it.
2. There is a icon in the middle of the dash, just to the right of the gear indicator that looks like a toothed ring or gear or something. Nothing in the manual references what that icon actually means. I think it's pretty much on all the time on my 800XC-ABS. Any idea what it indicates?
Nice review, video and promotion. Now if only my friggen bike would get here!
I test rode an orange Tiger XC, and gotta say it was pretty great. If I had to have just one bike, this would be the one. As it is now though I have a relatively new and farkled DR for the dual sportin' and a Rocket 111 Roadster for the rest of it.
Maybe in a few years...
Public service announcement: Hold the pass switch down for one minute and you'll blow a fuse and then you have no lights. Don't try at night while watching for deer eyes.
That is all.
The reviews have begun: Motorcycle.com
It's part of the gear indicator, simply a gear icon. Kinda like the units to the right of the other readouts, so represents 1st gear, 2nd gear etc.
Threw me on my Daytona for a while. Looked like the 'snowflake' low temperature warning icon on a R1200GS.
There are plenty of bikes waiting for buyers on dealer show rooms.
Going to the dealer for a test ride on an XC ABS tomorrow. I'd buy the road version but they don't have one to demo. Multistrada is still on my mind but I'm trying to block it out and save some cash. The dealer doesn't have one of those available to demo either, probably a good thing :)
Road owners, can you push the bike pretty good in the corners? I'm coming off of a modern sportbike, how disappointed will I be with the tiger? I'm talking handling here, not power. Other than the kickstand, does anything else drag?
I'd really love to get an XC for tall, adjustable front suspension, but the 21" front and non-tubeless tires spoil it for me.
Thanks for the research
Didn't know my 800 had a 19" rear tyre.
They bolt on the upper engine-Frame mount Right & Left sides + on the lower center stem from head-stem to light unit.
Haven't got a shot of the center fixing point - yet....
Do you have an Android phone?
1) Download and install Torque - it's FREE - onto your phone!
2) Buy an OBDII Bluetooth Dongle.
3) Plug the dongle into your diagnostic plug on the Tigger.
4) Switch on your phone & bluetooth
5) Start the Tigger
6) Pair the Bluetooth device & the phone
7) Start Torque (on the phone)
8) Select 'Clear Warning Codes'
And now you can also see what's happening inside the ECU on your phone!
I use it on my Thunderbird and have now ordered a second OBDLL Dongle for the Tigger...
Here's a few utube vids I did with my 'Bird:
