My garage:

Only the KLR is in working order.
Here is where the Tiger regulator lies:

Beneath the tank and seat.

This is where my R/R is located; up and behind radiator. Pretty good air flow when in motion. Guess the Triumph engineers had new ideas.

Yeah older Tigers had the alternator setup. They rarely had problems....go figure.


Pic of a R/R relocation (similar to my '06 Tiger). Getting it in the breeze.

Oh and Tom, if the battery is showing 12.8v after sitting, it has survived the torture of a malfunctioning charging system. Seems like you caught this thing early enough to save a tow.
The only electrical issue I had was the "crank positioning sensor".
Would randomly die then start right up.... Or not haha
Was very random but gradually got so bad I had to figure it out.
To this day I always ride looking for my escape route in case my bike dies in the middle of the highway.
Love it when that happens in those construction cattle chutes.

Great experience with Gore Tex

Just wanted to let everyone know about a warranty experience I had with Gore Tex. Had a pair of TCX boots that developed a crack across the front of the boot. Didn't think about it, but then I got caught in a all day rain. Sure enough my foot got wet.
Was wondering if TCX would warranty the boots or give me a hard time about it. They were quite old, anyway a friend said call Gore Tex they guarantee their products. So I sent them an email describing the problem. That same day I received and email asking me to call. Spoke to them on the phone, and they gave me a number, telling me to send them back and they will look at them.
Sent them in on Wednesday. Got a call Monday telling me that they received them, looked at them and told me to go get another set of boots. I asked what kind, and they told me anything as long as they were Gore Tex. So off to the dealer I went. Found a comparable pair of BMW boots, called Gore Tex back gave them the name and boot size they said OK.
A few days later, got a call from a dealership saying that they are handling the warranty claim for Gore Tex and that my NEW boots were on the way. The whole thing was as painless as could be and just goes to show that there are people that stand behind their products. There stuff is a little more expensive, but they stand behind their products and have some of the best customer service that I have ever had to deal with.

You put it back together with a light coating of dielectric grease, right?
