Perhaps too late in that you already ordered - but Happy Trails has racks for 800 Tigers now. Ready to ship. j

Brake side of the Barkbuster

I had to loosen the banjo bolt and move the brake line down a little. Why do they use rounded off banjo bolts? Is that so you won't overtighten them? A regular box end just spun around on the banjo bolt.

Luckily I had some fitting(?) wrenches that were able to grab it.

20 more horsepower

I have a question how did Triumph get 20 more horsepower out of the 2012 800 XC compared to the 2011?

The 800gs is a "dirt" based bike that can do paved duties.
The 800xc is a more "street" based bike that can do dirt duties.

Would you agree with that ?????? Just curious.

No, in my opinion it's just opposite. The much better front suspension and the smuuuther engine makes the T800 better than the GS800 off road.

I'm interested to know where you got that info from? Does that mean that my 2012 has 114bhp?

They didn't. The only difference between the 2011 and the 2012 is the frame color.

I'll start: I got one of the first ABS XCs delivered in the US, and it's been flawless for 9100 miles now.

Unless your 2012 is special and came with a silver frame

Doubtful - they need to stay under the 95 (ish) HP limit....

Don't forget the Eurpeans are on the metric system. So looking at dyno results and trying to make comparisons you need to be aware not only of HP taken at the crank vs rear wheel but metric versus US. HP is a calculated number based on torque that can be measured.

HP with a PS is a metric calc based on torque, measuring the ability to lift a weight measured in Kg X time, usually indicated on a grapth in Newton Meters (NM).

Their horses are smaller than ours.
