Tiger 800XC Vibration
« on: December 25, 2011, 10:09:44 PM »
Lovin my Tiger been getting out and about this last week, about 200 miles or so in lovely wet mid-Wales.  All road based riding though.  Does anyone else have vibration when over 6-7000 RPM through the footrests?

Is this a common 'feature'?

May just need to get some more miles on it, not run in until at least 12'000 miles

to tonyf...it is normal that the engine vibration transfers to footpegs.
To Bert... engine is "run in" in the first 500 kilometers of its life (believe it or not).

Yup, footpegs and handlebars too.

 Hi all, I'm also getting a vibration through the bike but at around 4000rpm, it almost feels like dry transmition but strangely seems to get worse when cornering left. I was aware of it from day one, I've covered around 2000 miles now and it ain't getting any better. I test rode a brand new bike before I ordered mine and that one was smooth as silk. I'm just doing battle with the dealer trying to get a Triumph test rider to ride it but I'm getting nowhere fast.
 Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Its difficult for me to comment really, having come from an Africa Twin I have to say the Tigger is probably the least vibey bike I've ever ridden even moreso than my old 955 :034:

Mine had the footrest vibes to start with, and no, it's not run in at 500Km, mine took about 2000 miles before it started to feel smooth.
