A few months back in Ride magazine was a guy who had a Tiger 800. He's done stupid mileage on it and said the starter had died at a certain mileage. If he'd done the extra mileage earlier it would have been covered by Triumph as it's a KNOWN issue.

Can't say which month if was as the cats tend to destroy any magazine I leave in the living room for more than a few minutes.

My 2012 800XC was beginning to show signs of a weak starter, so I ordered a starter from Ricks Motorsports.
  What a pain to change out, but worth it. My original starter made it since new, and 57,000 miles.
Amazing when degradation is gradual. You don't notice it sounding like a 440 Dodge motorhome, trying to start, until you change out the starter. So surprised how much quieter it cranks. Cranks much more energetically, too! Hope it goes 10 years, like the OEM starter did.

Hey, anybody need an OEM starter for a core or something?

I also ride my Husqvarna 701 Enduro. (Been known to ride the "Vet" track @ Fox Raceway.) If you see and old, fat guy on a 701E, it's likely me!

Believe it or not, I'm down to 2 bikes!

Phil's Tiger800 engine went pop a while back, mebbe 2019, he didn't make the 200k. He bought a Jap bike to replace it. Can't recall what but vStrom 650 rings a bell. He posts on other forums.
