Interestingly, Fowlers list it for my 2012 XC as Kit, Detent Wheel & Plate part no T1194905

Appears to be modified parts for bikes up to '14MY .

 According to the 675 owners site, its more common than you might think..

Two more occurrences of this issue with Tigers have popped up on Facebook.  Whilst it is still not common I suspect we might be at the start of another broken selector spring or worn starter motor bushes saga.

Was the job easy to do , total cost ? Sounds far better than my bm1200gs final drive which are unofficially consumable items , 400  a shot to get rebuilt and pot luck how long it will last ranging from 15k to 45k one of the main reasons for switching to the tiger , I will not buy another single sided swing arm bike - style over best engineering practice.

A total of about AUD$100 in parts and I guess an hour and a half labour. You do need to pull the clutch basket off but that is about the hardest part. Dont even need to drain the oil.

Thats not too bad ,Ive found all bikes have design flaws but if its cheap enough to fix that softens the blow to the owner

Having spoken to my dealers today, sounds like mine has gone the same. Had been thinking it was the more normal pin issue.
