Newby from stoke
« on: December 29, 2018, 11:14:35 AM »
Well I went and eventually bought the tiger 800, I have admired them from afar for much too long, delivery expected in the next week or so, and I am hoping that someone may remember the actual bike. 

It is a 2012 tiger roadie, with some very nice bits, I am mainly interested in the suspension side.  The bike had a Maxton NR4 shock and modified fork internals, I could really do with knowing the weight settings for these parts when purchased, as I am not a small man this is important and in my opinion necessary info as it will dictate if I need to contact Maxton and arrange for adjustments to be made. The tiger is a black 2012 registration is VO62FYA. I already have an email into Maxton, but obviously with the Christmas and New year shutdown am looking for a chance my arm kind of answer

Any help appreciated.

Hi, assuming you mean Stoke-on-Trent, I'm just up the road in Holmes Chapel, though your picture is of a dealer in Cheltenham ?

I had a 2011 T800 for about 3 years and early on I had the suspension done by Maxton's including a new rear shock, if you didn't get the manual that Maxtons supply when doing this kind of work I suggest checking with the previous owner, or the dealership, they should list the settings in there and whether it includes pre-load for a passenger.

The only other way to approximate this is to check the static sag, unloaded, rider only and fully loaded, panniers and pillion, it should only go up to 90-95% range fully loaded without bottoming out.

Richard, or one of the lads at Maxtons will eventually get back to you, you stand a better chance at the moment as they won't be tied up with race prep's  :028:

Dilbert,  thanks for the info, bike gets delivered on friday so should have the necessary paperwork at that time, hope its good to go for my ahem "weight" , but will still be better than stock.  Looking forward to being back on a trumpet
