That's been my favorite part so far. Talking about the filler hole.
Does anyone on hear have a sargent saddle for their Tiger 800? I just bought the low version and have two issues.
1. I can't install the riders seat when both bars under the seat are set to low. The issue is that I can't get both the front and rear bars under the lips at the same time. I've verified that any other bar combination (low, high or high, low) work.
2. The passengers seat latch pin doesn't latch. I've tried pushing down (and almost tipped the bike) and I've verified that nothing is in the way.
Any ideas, thoughts or experiences with this situation and saddle?
Some of you who are handy with a wrench and/or those of you who are experiencing vibration in your T800's might want to read my post in the Tiger 800 problems thread:
Outstanding. Certainly worth a check.
Is broken turn signals stalks a known issue on T800s? Found RR turn signal hanging on the wire. I guess another visit to the dealer tomorrow. :huh
I had a similar experience whilst breaking mine in 25000 km ago; I can't remember what the official explanation was but it went away around the 1000km mark.
There is a tendency to over analyze every sound a new machine makes, lord knows I suffer from this syndrome with everything from a garlic press to a new hard drive.
Wear ear plugs and twist the shit outta that throttle as soon as break-in ends.
I was riding tonight and caught myself saying (to myself) "god^%~it I love this bike." This sound happens a lot.
Got my recall notice in the mail for them yesterday.
I did 500 miles service today. Da fuq?!
They should have put a current tune in the ECU and replaced your signal stalks. Asleep at the switch.
Will see tomorrow
Fellow tiger keepers,
Being all about mechanics and hopeless at anything electronics - I need a bit of advice.
I am trying to do permanent install of short range radio in my Tiger. I got nice present - radio itself (good one) and "battery emulator" for cigarette lighter socket. E.g. I can power radio from the bike, but since aerial a bit long I do not want to keep radio "outside" and visible and remove every time I need to leave bike.
So, idea is to hook aerial to radio using cable, install aerial somewhere around rear of bike and possibly radio also there.
But. Clear and present danger is that if I hotwire that "battery emulator" one day I will forget to click button etc. and switch it off bike battery. Eventually it will drain battery.
Sorry for long preamble.
Question: is there a way to hook that radio charger somehow to Tiger so that it switches off with ignition key and if so - to do it in safe and reversible way, so that I still have what's left of my warranty (1 more year)? Is there free connectors etc. that I just do not know about?
My bike is XC with heated grips but no aux lights etc.
You need Eastern Beaver 3 Circuit Solution. Wire relay switching lead to tailight (+).
thank you! That is spot on what I been looking for!
What battery do you all have in your bike? I've got the Yuasa YTX16-BS. I'm showing some discrepancies between what I have and what the internet says I should have. It's a replacement so it could be the wrong battery.
The maintenance manual lists what you have got.
I dont have a maintenance manual
Sorry, I meant the maintenance manual, which I have, lists the same battery as you have got.
Mine is the same as well.
On Wednesday I will be buying a used 2013 Triumph Tiger. I lucked out and found one in Chattanooga TN. The guy bought it new, put 4901 miles on it and decided to trade it on the explorer. I get it for less than MSRP, and it already has the taller windscreen, panniers, hand guards, and fog lights. I am looking forward to the ride back to Indianapolis, I am stopping by Mammoth Cave Park.
