Tiger 850 Sport Valve Clearance Check
« on: February 02, 2021, 11:40:19 AM »
Hi if the maintenance schedule for the Tiger 850 Sport has been lengthened to 10000 miles, does anybody know when the valve clearances are checked? Is is 10000 miles or 20000 miles? Could have a bearing on a future purchase.

I would suggest it would probably be at the 10,000 mile servise, although I stand to be corrected  :084:

If it is at the 10,000 mile services Triumph will be cashing in   :007:

IMO - If the service interval on the 850 has been lengthened then presumably the new 10k service is the older Tiger 6k service - no valve clearances and then the new 20k service would be the old 12k service and valve clearance check. :027:

I've received a reply from Triumph Aftersales which states that the 10K service interval was a mistake in the early press releases and that the correct intervals are 6K as per the current Tiger 900 and previous Tiger 800's.
Nice of them to correct their misinformation.
