They'll likely come in the kit for the people that didn't have a centerstand installed at all. I'll have to check what I have on the bike tonight at home.

Has anyone seen the forum with the details on getting 150+ Hp out the Tiger800 engine?

Apparently they are putting in the Daytona 675 timing cam (adjustable) and taking out the cat converter putting on an arrow pipe and changing the computer module.

Have herd of a Tiger800 getting 164hp!
That's huge, but I don,t think I would be doing it, the power curve would be changed dramatically, and would be unsuitable to the type of riding that I do. Would be ok for the roadie though!

That is utterly ridiculous. The Tiger 800 bore/stroke ratio would never allow the revs needed to make that kind of power. The head would never flow enough gases either. Big joke.

I found a digital factory manual, but is there a workshop/repair manual in digital form out there somewhere?

There is a thread on the Tiger UK forum where a guy put in a Daytona intake cam, with some botching managed to make a daytona or street triple header fit etc. He was definitely getting more power, but nothing like 150hp. Limiting factor was the engine's ability to flow enough air. He posted some info about that on this thread as well, way back when.

Why should I NOT buy a 2011 Tiger 800

Ive been looking hard at the Tiger since it first came on the scene and I am now looking even harder at buying a lightly used 2011 800 (non xc - non abs).

Being a long time Weestrom owner I am tossed up between the slightly reworked strom and the 800... I really want something "different" so instead of going with the make/model bike I know and have relied on for many years the Tiger seems to be the one.

Ive read thru as much of this thread as I can and I see several mentions of recalls and some seem a bit more worrisome than others. Ive also noticed what appears to be a somewhat high "turn-over" rate on them (people selling after a short time.. most say something like "its just not the bike for me"... or similar).

What am I too look out for?

Any reason I dont want to buy a Tiger?

There were a few recalls for the 2011, the first year model, but nothing on the 2012. And I believe the recalls on the 2011 consisted of a centerstand spring and a new ignition map. Someone else can chime in if I missed one.
I havent noticed the high turnover rate that you speak of. But I will say that there is such a large market wanting them, especially used ones, that if it turns out that the bike is not your cup of tea it will be easy to sell. The Tiger 800 is the latest craze in adv bikes and they are selling quite well. They are also getting a huge following from former 800GS riders. The BMW guys are converting like there is no tomorrow around here according to both the Triumph and BMW dealers. Just test ride it. That should tell you enough.

I went with the SWmotech bash plate because it covers the oil filter but you can still get the filter off without removing the skid plate. A win-win IMO. http://shop.sw-motech.com/cgi-bin/co...typid=89566482
My local Triumph didnt have much as far as aftermarket goodies so I'm sure I'll go on-line and find some thing. That skid plate looks sweet and thats what I'm after, protection and functionality. I think I'll keep it to solid hand guards, skid plate and engine guards. Being an off-road guy most my life I'm sure I'll find trails and say to myself, "Yeah I'm sure I can do that!".

Be sure to look at the Altrider bash plate. Its a fully welded assembly. No rivets. But it is pricey. Its the best made farkle on my Tiger.

Have you ridden one? That will tell you if it clicks with you.

It has the least incidence of new bike fix-it's of any make or model I've ever heard of. I would say they're pretty much bulletproof. One guy had trouble with the immobilizer, a few in the beginning had trouble with the idle stepper motor. The issues are few and far between.

I am only aware of a couple that have come up for sale. As mentioned, there's a huge following and EVERY professional bike tester pretty much raves about it. It is a bike that is almost universally liked by anyone that rides one, something so very rare today.

Compared to the V-strom ( I had a DL1000) fit and finish and components are nicer on the Triumph. Suspension is better, ergos are better, and performance is better. The motor makes the v-twin seem clunky. Can be accessorised to do the same kind of touring the 'strom does. If you're going to ride off pavement then you want the XC. If it's never going to see dirt, or only the rare occasion, then the T800 roadie has some advantage features, primarily it's alloy wheels and tubless tires.

They are easy to maintain and easy to work on. Design engineering is very good and is build quality.

Nothing wrong with the 2011. Mine is still going strong! All the recalls were easy to fix and nothing to make the bike worthless. I had a DL1000 for 2 years and put 2,000 miles. I hated that bike. And I mean hate. I tried to like it and just couldn't. Their are thousands of DL1000 followers that Love their bike. Sold it and eventually bought the Tiger. I'll have at least 20,000 on my tiger before the 2 year mark. Just proof that not everyone likes the same bikes. Like said above, Ride one...

I had the same issue, different part, with them. They took forever and way too much bullshit of calling them.

People think they are a dealer. They're not; just an online retailer. They order the parts, when you order them, and ship when they get them.

Not possible, with the work stated.

You can read through JD's progress, on his Daytona 675, here. I know it's not an 800, but, you can look through all the stuff he did and what his gains were for each modification.

I just double checked and it was the owners manual I found, not the factory service manual. Sorry 'bout that.
