Gen 3 800. What Goes Wrong?
« on: September 29, 2020, 01:40:20 AM »
Hi all, a question. Currently looking to downsize from a TEX 1200 and have my eye on an 18 XCX with next to no miles on it. I am very mechanically experienced with the 1200 but would like to hear you guys opinions and experiences with what goes wrong with the 800 and what to look out for when buying one.

In the reading I have done I see the immobilisers are creating some dramas. The previous stepper motor issues I believe have been resolved?

Much appreciate your advice gents.

Been on this forum over 5yrs and immobilisers barely come up. I recall a couple of dodgy signal receivers and possibly one or two related to replacing with S/H through doing crash/damage repair replacement and getting them working but certainly nothing in any numbers to indicate an issue any more than any other make has odd issues.  :027:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

My '18 had the immobilizer fault pop up a few times when I first got mine. A firmware update resolved the issue.

A wild guess might be that I own a motorcycle repair shop and strangely, all bikes breakdown. Who knew?  :007:

Hi mate and thanks for the welcome. That concept works really well on those casual weekend rides in civilisation. Wait until you are broken down in an Iranian desert or in the jungle of West Bengal...ask me how I know ;) You'll be glad you did your homework in advance. Trust me.
