Tiger reliability
« on: March 01, 2021, 03:03:07 PM »
Does anyone want to comment on the general reliability of the Tiger 800. I am looking for a post 2018 but am concerned about Triumph reliability. I have read about the Bonneville T120 for example having issues with front brake squeal, gearbox and fuel leaks. Should I be worried?

Had my 2017 xrt for 3 years . No issues. No breakdowns. As good as any other bike I've had

I've got one of the last Gen2's on an18 plate. First MoT next week. Never had any issue whatsoever. Not expecting anything next week either.
Cosmetically great also.

If you're buying a T120 then yes - possibly.  Tiger no. AS with all vehicles there can be issues. Gen 3 top of the tree. All worked out.

This a wind up? We've all heard of the T120 front brake squeal, not a reliability issue.

I've done 160k miles on Trumpies, had one breakdown, a Denso stick coil failed, Japanese component made in Spain?

My Tiger 800 has been fine apart from slight problems with corrosion on the main fuse holder. My T120 has also been fine, I'm thinking of going to the dealer to have the squeal fitted to my front brake as it's been disappointingly silent.
