Tiger900 wear on offside engine casing
« on: August 26, 2021, 02:04:11 PM »
My  bike is less than 3 months old and already the paint on the engine casing on offside is wearing away. This looks like a design fault as the footpeg seems to be too close to the clutch casing. Triumph says they will replace the casing but that will not rectify the problem. Is anyone else having this issue  please let me know . Thanks

My friend managed to do the same on his Yamaha which I think had something to do with the way he moved his boot when he operated the rear brake. On my Tiger 800, the most that comes into contact with my clutch cover is the side of my over-trousers and I doubt that is going to cause any wear when pivoting my foot on the peg to operate the brake :084:

Had 2 tiger800 never any wear on those. The 900  footpeg is too near to the casing due to the engine being re designed. My pal was talking to one guy and hes had 3 replacement casing within 4000miles. Something wrong somewhere.

I have just noticed on my GT Pro but mine is about 14 months old, have you managed to sort this problem out?

14 months on my 20 Rally Pro....  no issue with worn paint and I'm doing a lot of off-roading.

Even if the paint did wear....I wouldn't care.  It's not a museum piece.

They have rear brakes?  :027:

I have the same problem on my 800 XRT. The paint was quickly worn through to the metal on the clutch cover. This was never an issue with my previous 2013 Tiger.
