Nice to hear that Triumph is stepping up to the plate.

(At least so far . . . . . )

They are going to tell you that you've lugged the engine too much...
You need to spool it up to clean it out.....let Trev ride it more

Carbon Build up

Hey Guys,

After doing some research, this Fuel Injection Cleaner seems to have exceptionally good results and reviews in cars and motorcycles. I will be using it in my Tiger and other machines as well starting now. Hopefully it will help with this kind of problem.


Available at Pep Boys or On Line

Red Line SI-1 Fuel System Cleaner - 15 oz. by Red Line

Very glad to see that Triumph is stepping up. So Far !

It'll be interesting to see what they find. Might make since to start running some seafoam through my tiger early on as a little preventive maintenance.

Does this mean you're going to do the ride report from our single track in the snow that had me riding home with a broken shift shaft in 3rd gear?
