My statement still stands that there are no real updates to the 2014 even though (or because) no information is available.
That could be true!!
I have NO info of the bike at all.
All I know is a bike will be delivered to my house in about two weeks.
I guess we all shall wait and see.
I hope can call on all the knowledge from Tiger owners.
Who was is that was questioning if the 800 had enough to tour 2up on?
Do ya think they could pile a little more on that thing.

bit of a thread hijack.... no that doesn't look bad at all. Here is a reasonable non-third world example of overload. So many examples of bikes overloaded in India for utility or commerce but I don't feel that counts.
How much should I expect to pay for a chain and sprockets for an xc?
check prices on the internet.
Get a set of Ironman sprocket. I have heard good things.
Bought a tiger 800 road. Gonna be here in 2 weeks. CANT WAIT!
Been reading this thread, some awesome posts and help! Many thanks
Welcome and congrats on your new bike.
I'd be careful quoting that photo if I were you!
Anyone know the symptoms of the "Gear Shift Lever Spring" failure. My shifting has gone to shit in a week. Sometimes normal other times not. The spring has not yet been replaced.
Missed second two or three times, difficulty down shifting.
2011 model with 16k miles. It has been tagged for spring replacement.
Yes, poor shifting.
You have a bike that is not shifting well. You have a bike with a known faulty part in the shifting mechanism. Isn't the overwhelmingly obvious first step to sorting your issue just to get the spring replaced?
Sometimes things like getting someone to do something are not so easy. Seems dealer's service manager, who has been recently fired, could not locate the part that Triumph sent for my bike and asked me for some time to find it. Replacement manager/general manager is on vacation this week.
I didn't see any merit in asking the mechanic filling in as SM to get involved in the cluster fuck.
I guess what I should have asked was is a catastrophic failure imminent? or is it safe to ride while putting up with poor shifting until next week?
My expectations are not high at the only shop I would consider doing business with.
I believe what happens if the spring breaks or gets weak is that it won't want to return to it's normal static position and that you would have to return the lever manually to it's normal resting spot after each shift (with your foot) otherwise the lever just hangs limp and the selector won't reset. I don't think its the type of thing that will strand you but it could be a hassle. I had mine done before it was showing any signs of going bad. I did notice it was much easier to get into neutral afterwards and shifting in general was better. Sorry you have to deal with a crappy dealer.
There's blame to go around. The lost part came up in April and I never pressed them about it. I was happily riding a trouble free bike until now. The fired Service Manager and I did not have a cordial relationship. Looking forward to meeting whoever gets the the job next.
Here's a good dealer note: Stopped into Latus Motors, Gladstone, OR, today. They are Harley and Triumph. For a Harley event there was a band and a barbecue. Spoke with the service manager for a minute and he took my Tiger in back to flash the latest map. I grabbed a hot dog, listened to the tunes and rode off. Good day and a great dealer!
