Took the opportunity to do the following to Tigger in Santiago de Chile on our RTW ride:


66,000 mile service
check valve clearances - all inlets tight
balance injectors
change coolant
change spark plugs
change brake fluid
fitted new tapered steering head bearings
fitted new endless D.I.D. chain and sprockets
greased rear suspension
new brake pads all around
new front EBC brake discs
replaced rear brake pad pin
replaced brake calliper rubber boots front and rear
replaced front master cylinder diaphragm
fitted new UniFilter prefilter
fitted new airbox seal
gear return pin repaired and return spring replaced
applied JB Weld to swingarm to "repair" wear marks created by chain rubbing strip
fitted new front beak support moulding
replaced the captive nut behind the catalytic converter cover as it had rusted away
cleaned electric connectors and greased with dielectric grease
converted rear spoked wheel to tubeless using Outex kit
fitted new Heidenau K60 rear tyre
rubbed down and resprayed Jesse luggage pannier frames
removed rust from mirror stems
fitted Rotopax 6.6 litre fuel can
fitted new GPS cradle for Zumo 595 (replaces failed Zumo 660)
fitted new extended chainguard
replaced two upper rubber support "washers" for radiator
pretty much disassembled, cleaned and reassembled bike
had my Nitron shock absorber serviced in the UK


Obviously not all done in one day but over a few weeks. All done now and ready for the next 70,000 miles or so :-)

Showed that it's possible to get down to 0mpg if you try hard enough. All you have to do is fill it with diesel.

Fortunately I realised before starting it up but unfortunately after filling it to the top. Had to get it extracted. And then I discovered that both dip beams had blown, so I rode the 35 miles or so back home on full beam, dazzling everyone else.

That was actually two days ago. I think I can manage to confess to it now.

At 45,000 miles on my 2012 Tiger800ABS I flashed the ECU with 21066 map. I have not ridden it a long way but the throttle response seems less vicious and lean popping is reduced.  Now to find a map for the Leo Vince pipe I removed a year ago.

Surely you mean "Tiggers broom"   :001: :001: :001:

PS: Yes I am aware of the Trigger to which you refer  :001:
