Hello everyone, I've seen "2nd generation" talk here and there. Does anyone have an idea when their will be a 2nd generation? Is it possible that the next model year will be an improved version?

Stalling Fix

Quote:
I just finished talking to my dealer about what was posted about the "fix" with the newest map. He called Triumph U.K. and was told this latest map is not the so called fix as has been told to other owners. He said that each dealer has access to a certain area on Triumphs dealer site where the stalling fix will be notated as soon as one is found. At least according to him one has not been found yet. I hope he is wrong and the fix is ready. My dealer did tell me to come on down an install the latest map. Cheers
From the same source the UK Tiger forum...like I said we have not heard of any permanent fix but we are expecting a call tomorrow maybe with some news.

hey you can't just leave it at that we need a full report. How much, where from, How many hours can you stand and where can we get one just like it. Is it a rebuild or new seat? Did you try the Triumph gel seat before and is this improvement you know all the usual information.

We were down in Clear Creek, too bad that place closed down. We stayed on all the 'legal' dirt roads.

The tires actually did okay on the off-road terrain. We jam on the paved roads, so we're looking for a slightly more aggressive tire for the dirt, with out losing traction on the pavement.

Looks like this seat might be taller and set you back more as well. Is that the case?

I've spoken to triumph on the phone and they act like this is the only one they have heard of with this problem. Since they are close to Atlanta I suggested that they have one of the engineers on the project drive around during rush hour, then they would soon understand the problem. Anyway has anyone had this problem solved?
Yes this topic has been discussed for months now. Do a search and you will find lots of info. Or just go back a couple pages if you want an abbreviated version.

2nd generation? It just came out. Probably won't see a gen 2 version for a few years. The Tiger 1050 came out for the 2007 model year and it's still gen 1.

I am trying to build something similar. I can tell that seat will put you forward a bit because of the lip at the back. I am trying to build a flatter seat that can mate with the passenger section when the front is in the high position so I can slide back and forth on the highway. I figure I can put the seat in the low position when riding off road to make it easier to put a foot down.
I'd like to know where to get one of those though in case my home made effort doesn't work.

I agree.
They might make some small changes year by year but if you're expecting bolt on subframes and the like you've got to be looking at 2014/5 IMO at which time it'll probably be bored out to 850cc to compete with the new Husqvarna 900ADV due in a year or so.

Some of these will do you.


Heidenau K60 Scouts. They haven't slowed me one bit on the roads (psi=30F/36R) they steer nice and neutral and off road (psi=20F/25R) they're pretty good for a 50/50 tyre. AND, the ADVgrrls got over 8500 miles on a set during their Alaska trip.

I just received the seat yesterday and haven't had a chance to ride yet because I'm in the middle of my fog light installation and Triumph decided to ship 2 left hand brackets instead of a LH & RH bracket.

My seat was modified by Baldwin Motorbike Saddles out of Kansas, Loren does great work. He modified my Versys seat and I could ride that bike all day long with little to no butt pain.

I did not try the Triumph gel seat.

Loren will do about whatever you want. I wanted to try more of the saddle shape figuring the more contact with the butt the better to distribute load. I went with the memory foam with a gel insert and then just had him recover the pillion to match the rider seat. They are expensive so I'm sure they are not for everyone, $450!!! Time will tell as far as comfort but I expect it to be as good as or better than my Versys seat.

Thanks... I've been reading up on those, they seem to be a great tire.

I have some on my wee-strom. Does your front tire whine like crazy above 55mph? The newer ones have a bit different tread design....and on the rear it's less aggressive, but the front is very similar.
