triumph center stand is fine.
because that's how they are made from the factory.
Maybe the pass seat color is supposed to help hide boot scuff marks. Mine is scratched to hell from my boots. I agree that it looks off.
If you first put your left foot on the peg and get on like a horse - and get off the same way, you won't be hitting your rear seat with your boot.
The stock passenger seat is a perfect match for the Triumph Gel seat.
Me too. Either it's the tallest bike I've ever had or I'm getting older.... or both.
You might try lifting your foot straight up and directly across the seat, instead of swinging over the entire seat. Before you say you leg doesn't go that high, I'm 62(making me an official Geezer) and it works for me.
Thanks DD, Looks like I'll get the center stand and probably the bash plate from Triumph and pick up the crash bars else where. The Altrider bars look pretty nice although I'd probably paint them black to match the frame.
When I bought the bike they said they had most of the extras in stock and any other parts would be ordered in time for when I collected it a week later.The only thing that did not come in was the bash plate which they fitted at 1st service.
All extras were fitted FOC
I checked with my dealer yesterday. They said that Triumph still doesn't list the beak for the Sapphire Blue but it should be available by the end of the month. It will be interesting to see if yours comes in.
Maybe, 59Steve or lmychajluk could look at their invoices and find the part number, for you.
Part number is A9708212 - ##
The ## being the colour code. Looks nearly as nice as Venom Yellow. Certainly better than the white or Black.
Thanks. I think they have the part number it was the color code that they do not have listed yet. Hopefully they get it sorted out. Triumph told them they would by the end of the month. No biggie though it's not a must need item for me. I just think it looks better with the beak especially after the pics that were just posted of the blue one.
-JM is the color code on my invoice, just FYI...
On a related item, I did notice that when you build a bike on Triumph's site and add the beak for the Saphire Blue, the white beak is added to the parts list. So maybe there's something screwed up in Triumph's Parts DB that takes a bit of finagling to get around?
FWIW, I checked my valves over the weekend with my Tiger just short of 14k miles. All seem to be in in spec. For anyone planning on doing this I would recommend getting some feeler gauges that are narrow (so easy to bend) and maybe another set that have the 45 degree bend in them. Overall it's a pretty easy job but it would be nice if there was a little more clearance between the head and the valves so that the gauges would fit in cleaner to allow for more precise measuring.
Bizarre. Works fine for the UK.
Looking at some aftermarket stuff and I have a few questions:
1. Are the Givi sidecase racks spaced evenly across the rear of the bike.... or in other words... Does the exhaust side stick out farther than the other side... anyone have pics of from the rear with the Givi racks????
2. I also want to add some crash bars and looking at the different options it appears that none actually protect the plastic upper cowls???
On a side note, I may actually get to take my new to me Tiger out this weekend..... work flow and weather seem to be pointing in that direction
1.) Elan has them.
2.) Happy Trails offer the crash bars. Tyson has thoroughly tested them.
Thanks for the reply and info.
I like the idea of the HT crash bars.... not sure I dont think they look a little.... "odd" from the front view??? I found that HB makes a seperate high bar that would serve the same purpose and appears to blend in with the bike a little better... just an opinion (you'd think i'd have learned to keep those too myself )
I think it has been discussed before but can't seem to find the post. I'm buying a Leo Vince exhaust for my bike, but before I do so I was thinking about drilling the pipe/baffle out of the stock one just to see what it does. Has anyone already done it, if so, what difference does it make, and does it get rid of the popping during decel? If no one has done it then let me know and I'll take a short video.
