Did you read the thread title?

 :164: ... clearly not thoroughly enough.  :138:

However, still worth adding to avatar/location info ..... unless Brettus intends repeating New Zealand a lot  :027: :002:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Some gold right here :

No red dirt there, the unit is sealed to external dirt.
That powder is all carbon---the ground-up  remains of the shite brushes.
So what happens is this. There is a very tight tolerance between the spinning  armature and the surrounding magnets on the case.
 As the motor heats and expands that spacing decreases. Add in all the waste carbon powder from the brushes and the motor jams and won't turn.
I have a Honda CB1300 with over 140k km on the clock and the starter motor is spotless inside and the brushes show only a tiny amount of wear.
Good motors can be made. Just not by Triumph/Denso!

Hi ,
Just picked up a 2011 tiger 800 . Took it for a 300km ride yesterday and loving it ! Hope that will be the first of many .
Only minor complaints are the amount of heat that comes off it at the stoplights . Much of the fairing around the radiator was removed by the previous owner . He said it was overheating and that was a recognised way to fix that issue . I'm considering getting those put back on . Anyone have input into that ?
Cheers

It looks to me from the photo that a previous owner must have tried to turn a Tiger into a Street Triple replica with the flat bars, forks through the top of the triple clamp, belly pan and street triple inspired fairing. Are you going to return it to Tiger specs or keep it as a street bike?

I had noticed there were some differences but not all those things ...lol .
I bought it just for cruising after talking with several riders for recommendations on what would be comfortable.... especially 2 up.  So it will only ever be a street bike. Sounds like the changes are more suited to what I'll be using it for :)

If your fan doesn't come on that much, it might not be a fan issue or thermostat issue, one thing worth noting that most people nowadays have no clue about, the cooling system shouldn't be "too cool" and the problem I heard about, is people only putting anti-freeze in the circuit, which lower the global temperature so much that the fan sometimes never comes in action and that's not good at all.

That's why it should mostly be half distilled water, half anti-freeze in the circuit, so the temperature is correct, so I'd advise you to purge the circuit and do a new 50/50 mix !

Decided to try fix the heat issue and came up with the idea of putting a deflector on top of the engine .
Works great ...no more hot bollocks !
