    Stay down there for a few days and carve up the twisties with the new toy.... that's some of the best riding in the world.

    Congrats.

    Thanks, I would love to stay there, but that whole work thing. I have a friend that builds floating docks all around there. I will meet up with him in the future and do plenty of riding down there.

    Skip the cave and go riding. Been there–it's a big cave–but it's not that great.

    I put Rox risers on my Roadie 800. Thinking about raising bars a bit more for more comfort while standing. What are my options? XC+Rox? Will it work? Do I need to change cables/brake line?

    I would love to skip the cave, but it kinda something I have to do. It is a family day and I figure of I am making my wife drive down there, I kinda should do something to make the trip worth it for her. Plus my son loves caves.

    Aha...a man that knows how to invest and that will pay dividends in the future! Family time will be great and you'll still get some awesome riding in. Congrats on getting the XC! You will love it. Our son was stationed not far from Mammoth Cave at Ft. Campbell for awhile. I did get down there to ride but only once. Lots of nice backroads for you to discover. Have a great time and get dirty!:clap

    Right on thanks, and I it is the roadie I am getting. Just has the add-ons to look like the XC.

    I bought some bars from an Explorer 1200 and was able to take the ROX risers off. The Explorer bars are a little wider than the stock XC bars and have about 1.5" more sweep. They are a lot better than the xc bars. But if you still want the xc bars, i'll make you a deal on the one's I took off my Xc.

    Good for you! I did the same thing last year on a 2012 XC w/500+ miles on it. Actually bought it from a Park Ranger at Mammoth Cave NP! Say hi to Jed for me! Tell him I'm lovin' the bike!

    If he and your wife like cars, you can make a stop at the Corvette museum in Bowling Green, which happens to be halfway between Chattanooga and Indy. My boys loved it.

    I bought my 800XC from Pandora's too.

    I replaced the stock air filter with a KNN air filter. I oiled the stepper motor and cycled it a few times. I put everything back together accept the snorkel and adapter as I'm waiting for a Uni filter to arrive. I double checked the connections both under the tank and for the filter cover and everything "seams" OK.

    Not sure if a test ride will clear it or if I should get the dealer tool and read the code before I go ride.

    Has anyone had this happen?

    Right on I will keep that in mind, I really like Pandora's. It kinda make it fun to make this trip for a great bike from a great dealership.

    If other Triumph's are anything to go by, 3 heat cycles should clear it (assuming the 'fault' is no longer present). A heat cycle is up to full temp and then cool down again. Others may know for sure - either way, I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it stays on for a while.
