New tiger 800
« on: January 14, 2020, 08:02:08 AM »
Good morning all. Looking to trade my street triple rs in for a more comfortable bike, and the 800 has been suggested. Found this one on the net, looks good to me. However is there anything i should be aware of/look for when viewing? Been told i should check the chain guard, as apparently these bikes like to eat them? Anything else to note?

Hi and :401:

Chain guard isn't a problem to my knowledge. Maybe they are referring to the chain rubbing strip (under/over the swing arm) which is a 'wear & tear' replacement item anyway, with 'gen 1' bikes having the early and more robust strip which tends to far exceed the recommended scheduled renew interval.  :028:

As above its the chain rubber strip that needs replacing every 6K miles of so. The chain guard has no problems.

The bike in the picture looks like a steal if it includes the luggage and crash bars as shown and comes with a dealership warranty.

Thank you for the replies, will check out the rubber when I get to see the bike. Yes the bike looks amazing, my only concern was mileage, at 41000, but she does have full dealership service history, and comes with a years warranty. Now i just need the weather to clear up so i can get down to see the thing.

Mileage is fine, people unnecessary worry about it.

 :001: well bit the bullet today and brought the tiger.....what can I say but wow. Such an awsome bike to ride, so comfortable and as much power as I really need. Had a great ride home from Kent. Look forward to many more hours out on her. Now to find a slightly louder exhaust, any recommendations?  :001:

Yes.

Don't fit one, and if you do kindly avoid riding past my bedroom at 5 am Monday to Friday as I already have a tw@t doing that. :023:

If you want to be more noticeable spend a quarter of the money and fit a good set of aux lights. There are a few deaf drivers out there still won't hear you coming but blind drivers....not so many.

Congrats and enjoy the bike - but ride responsibly and considerately so other responsible and considerate ppl can enjoy the same space. :031:
