You have gone from a bike with a 19 front wheel and Showa suspension F&R to a bike with a 21 front wheel and White Power suspension of course it will feel different but the rest of the bike is the same.

Hi Kiwi, Yeah I know about the suspension, it's better,  but it seems the power delivery and the response is greater Maybe it is just me being over sensitive  :084: Oh, and the buttons have solid lettering!

The Triumph dealer will fit a new the instrument cube on the left hand side. No reason was given by Triumph for the lettering coming off, but they agreed it was a faulty item, and that it will be replaced free of charge under the warranty.

Yay! I figured it was likely a supplier issue.  :047:

Congratulations Smalazina,  always good to hear a positive interaction with a dealer. I am taking mine to the dealer where I bought mine  for it's first service tomorrow. A 3 hour drive each way and they are the closest to me. :002:

That's a good outcome!

I still have the courtesy Triumph 800 XCA they let me ride. The switchgear on that has lettering that lights up from the back, so that means that it is embedded solid into the buttons and is translucent. Very different from having the letters applied to the surface. Thanks for your support, folks.

Well folks, I rode my Tiger home from the dealers yesterday only to find that the cruise control was not working after they had replaced the LHS switchgear cube! (let's hope the lettering doesn't rub off this one too). So I called the dealers asap and they said that the software had probably not been configured for the replacement. Great! So they offered to come and pick up the bike to sort it out and return it, which is some consolation. This does not inspire confidence in their technicians. Also, you will note that on the new Tiger 900 coming out this year, they have tucked the front turn indicators up under the handlebars in a much less vulnerable place than the 2018 800. They must have heard my earlier rant!  :232:
