The bare minimum necessary to drain the oil and refill.
That will help a lot, probs not worth a video!

Ive never had a problem with mine, too wet up here for dust so not sure what lube to use.

The stepper motor is in clear view when you have the bottom of the air box removed.



If someone lets me know what the recommended products are to clean and lube and happily make a vid.  Tried searching but couldn't find a final answer

Very nice videos! Nice and clear what you are doing without skipping many "basic" steps others tend to gloss over.

I've seen general tire repair videos on other bikes, but haven't seen anyone do a trailside video of an XC (when you don't have all the tools of the garage available).

Look forward to more!

I see where you're coming from Stealth, but mine is only 1500 miles away, and perhaps more to the point, I'm only 15-20 miles from Muddy Sump, so it'll be sooooooooooo much easier for us to coordinate mutually convenient times.

I can do your services for you if you want.  Thing is im going to need your bike the day before cause you need to check the shims on a cold engine, then if you need shims gonna have to wait for them to arrive......I would be cheaper than a dealer though :-)
Title: Re: Service videos

Cheers Muddy, great offer! :046: :046: :031: :031:

Mine goes out of warranty next month, so I've today booked it in at Triumph North East to have the 12k done just prior to that, get any issues found, hopefully!!

Price quoted isn't as grim as some others have found, at 398, with another 50 or so if any shims need doing (plus 5 or 10, I forget, for each shim). Coupled with new helmet, new trousers, Wunderlich screen deflector, its starting to be an expensive month!!

Muddy,

Chain adjustment is the one task that most of us will probably have to (or want to) tackle at some time. I know a few posters have already asked for this.

Could I add my plea for a video, as I will need to do this myself very soon. I would be far more confident tackling the job with your guidance.

Keep up the good work  :047:

Another good video Muddysump. If you don't mind me saying, I noticed the use of silicon spray on the cush drive but some overspray was directed towards the rear brake rotor. Might be best to mention this should be cleaned off with some brake cleaner after work is complete.

Great I have to say it again , short and sweet.
Last night did the airfilter.
Thanks !!!!!

You can make a note or something if you think its needed. When removing the tank with spotlights on first do the side bottom plastics, its not needed but you have more space to get the light brackets off the peak unit.

Love the work done. Cleaned engine everything first and then started putting things back.


Opening up is way more easy than putting it all back.
What I loved about the Tiger is there is only 3 tipes of bolts. 2 shorter once for at the beak. 2 Bigger head once for the Flicker panel at the seat adn the rest.
They did have maintenance in mind.  :047:

Great site and post.  :493:

Do the free play checks with the Tiger on the sidestand 'cause that's what the manual says.  If you have a centre stand you could compare the free play of the sidestand against the centre stand so long as you adjust for the centre stand. 

Simply you push the chain up on the lower chain run about 1/2 way along.  I have a piece of wood that I have marked at 5mm increments that I can hold against the lower surface of the swinging arm.  Distance between the resting position and the deflected (finger pushing) position is the fre play.

Hi

Are you sure it is the play from rest to `up` position? I say this because the manual shows a picture of bike with vertical arrow by chain showing movement up and down :084:
This will make a big impact on the correct slackness of chain.Oh, and great videos Muddysump.I have bought the piston tool to clean brakes and the M & P chain cleaning brush.
I have had shaft drive bikes since 1988( C90 don`t count  :156:)  and the chain was the only point that was putting me off but after looking at forum it seems that modern technology and Scott chainoiler means that not alot of adjustment is required.

I look forward to your imput Muddysump

I've always checked it pushing the the chain up and down, bike upright.

Thank you! I just did my plugs, air filter, and brakes thanks to these awesome videos!  Might have to pay someone to do the Valves as I can't seem to find a step by step tutorial.  I'd definitely take off all the plastics myself before paying someone hourly to wrench on my engine. 


Also I wouldn't mind a video of the headstock bearing disassembly and grease!

Awesome videos.

What I would really enjoy (and learn from) - would be a video on tool selection, I bought my Tiger used and it came without a toolkit, so I'm thinking about building one.

Would love to know what you use and recommend, and I think it would make a good, separate video, if you just covered the tools and briefly which job they are used for.

Thanks!

Those are very useful videos. Thank you so much, MuddySump. Where I live there are no dealers of triumph and I ride the only tiger in the area. So the mechanics are not familiar with the bike. Your videos helped a lot when I was working on my bike myself.

Hi Great video's!  Very clear and easy to follow. A real credit to you, thanks for doing them.
I see you use the proficat laser chain alignment tool. Would you recommend this bit of kit? I have looked at buying one several times but never quite justified the expense!
All the best

Thanks firecat. I only used the laser once on the tiger and it wasnt even that far out. When you've set the chain once you'll barely use it again.

Thanks for all your videos Muddysump.  I went to schedule my 12k service and was blown away at the cost estimate ($1,100+ usd).  The parts kit is only a fraction of that so I've decided to do it myself with the help of your videos.  Looks like you cover everything!  I've used your videos in the past for brakes, wheels, and chain and they've been great.

Muddysump, just watched your latest video on adjusting the valves.  Great video!   Just a question, in your experience, is working on the Tiger (meaning check and adjusting the valves) about the same level, more or less, of difficulty as checking and adjusting valves on other bikes?

Yes joeys. It's pretty much all the same procedure. Sometimes checking them can be different. If you look at my drz check video you just leave the cams in one place to check the clearances

MuddySump. Great videos.  This will be my first bike I will do all my own maintenance on.  Have done some thing on all my previous bikes but never to the level of full service intervals.  Mainly I am doing it because I like learning new stuff.    Videos will be very helpful.   Only question is finding a good service manual.  I found this.

https://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/215009474-triumph-tiger-tiger-abs-motorcycle-service-

Is this what I want or would I be better off with a Haynes manual?  I have a copy of Mark Barrett's coming but still want to get a full manual.

I was wondering the same thing.   The manual I have coming covers both.  Is there a better place to get the service manual or do I really need it if I but a Haynes manual?  I have read other posts that say to get both if you can.

David (MuddySump) has just completed my 6,000 mile service at home down here in West Sussex. I can only describe the service as first class. He arrived on time , well equipped and got stuck in straight away. The bike was completely stripped and serviced to a standard I do not believe I would receive from my Dealer. Full Triumph diagnostic test reporting and service "Spanner" reset !   :152: Service History book was stamped and full paperwork report issued.  I cannot recommend David  highly enough, BOOK HIM NOW, you will not be disappointed !

Dear Muddy sump. Thanks a million for posting those videos and for your comments here and on youtube. I finished valve work last night. Did everything on my won. For me it was the most major work I have done on any of my bikes. I screwed up with setting a torque wrench and broke thread in one of the holes. Thank God the hole was deep enough and I just made a longer bolt and it works fine so far.

Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: bigmankz on December 02, 2015, 09:24:17 AM
I used other feeler gauges and found out that none of the valves were out specs. In fact almost all of them were around the middle of the specs. The closest to the limit were intake valves on the 1st cylinder. and that is after 35 000 kms.

Its been said 1000X, but great videos and many thanks to Muddysump for taking the time to put them together.  :031:

I have a question regarding the 12K service.

I have a 2014 (roadie) and its coming up on 24K. I "thought" I saw somewhere that late model bikes required a special tool to do the valves? I cannot find that post anymore....

I have no issues doing the service, but I really dont want to get into it and realize I need some oddball one-off tool to get the job done.

Special tool needed?

thanks
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: MuddySump on January 27, 2016, 04:27:07 PM
The special tools are just for the first 12k service. They don't get used again after that. If your first 12k was done at a shop then it should of been done then.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I picked up the bike used with 16K on it so unfortunately I dont know that the 12K service was done.

I was "told" it was by the PO when I bought the bike that it had. I will have to assume that it was I suppose and move on.

thanks again

Post by: MuddySump on January 27, 2016, 04:42:23 PM
You can check the last 6 digits of your vin number. If it starts from 601012 or later then it's one of the ones that needs the adjustment.
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: GearHd6 on January 27, 2016, 05:15:09 PM
I was noticing on the newer engines you now need a camshaft timing plate and new bolts for the cam sprockets. Do you really need to loosen the cam sprockets to get the cams out or is that just to make sure it's timed perfectly?

602750 - makes me a lucky winner !!!  :006:

I think i'll try giving the shop where the bike was purchased a call and see if they have any record of the 12K service being done.

Title: Re: Service videos

Not to get the cams out. It's just so the sprockets move to take out the initial cam chain stretch
Title: Re: Service videos

Oh ok, so without the tool the cams and timing will be like they were prior to the cam removal. The tool just gets everything back to factory spec provided there has been chain stretch. Thanks.
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: MuddySump on January 27, 2016, 05:42:20 PM
The tools lock the crank in place and the cams in place so the screws on the cam sprockets can be removed and new screws fitted. It only gets done in the first 12k service and you don't need the tools any more after that
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: MuddySump on January 27, 2016, 05:50:13 PM

Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: GearHd6 on January 27, 2016, 06:01:31 PM
So even if your valves don't need to be adjusted, that timing procedure should be done at 12k?
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: MuddySump on January 27, 2016, 06:05:07 PM
Yes. Even if they're in spec it all needs to come apart for the timing
Title: Re: Service videos

Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: GearHd6 on January 27, 2016, 06:15:41 PM
I've had the bike since new and it's at 8k now so I'm just getting prepared for the 12k service. I'd hate to buy the tools to only use then once but I'm not in love with dealers servicing my bikes either.
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: RogerRamJet on January 27, 2016, 06:19:58 PM
Unfortuntely for me the local dealer has no record of service beyond the initial oil change. So no way to know if the 12K reset was done.

Im wondering if it would be possible to do it now @ 24K to ensure it was done?

Any idea the part @ of tools needed to do the reset?

Any chance there is a write up video of the procedure?

Maybe im being overly paranoid as it is @ 24K now... possibly I shouldnt be concerned and assume that as the bike has gotten this far.. assume it was done.
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: MuddySump on January 27, 2016, 06:30:36 PM
They never used to get done so I would imagine that not doing it would just be the same as the old 800's.
One possible way of telling when you have the cam cover off is the screws in the sprockets. Some of them were a flat head fitted as standard and when they're replaced its more of a round/button head. Some were coming with the round head ones too. I can get the part numbers for you but not sure of the prices. Might be cheaper just to get the shop to do the timing though since you're only going to be using the tools once
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: GearHd6 on January 27, 2016, 06:38:23 PM
Yeah, it's about $285 for all the tools. The worst is the torque limiter which is $205.
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: MuddySump on January 27, 2016, 06:39:51 PM
If you've got a torque wrench that goes that low though can just use that

Converted that's about 5.25 inch lbs. Do they even make them that go that low? I'll have to look.

... and if my experience of questioning the 12k check is anything to go by I wouldn't have any faith that the task was done even if my book was stamped, because ....

https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,17178.msg203638.html#msg203638 (https://www.tiger800.co.uk/index.php/topic,17178.msg203638.html#msg203638)

In fairness my dealer has 'let the mech go' and he was a very experienced guy (mid 40's?), coming to Triumph from a large multi franchise setup. The dealer now has a young mech who may well have attended the required official courses to understand and carry out this task hopefully .... although this will certainly bring the bill back to the higher figures that were being quoted of 750 (and that was a while back).

So with the mechs hint at 'emission requirements' and Muddysumps information about initial cam chain stretch the 2 items together make more sense to me. I guess the only other time this 'one off' would have to be reconsidered would be if (a long way down the road hopefully) the cam chain was renewed.

*Originally Posted by RogerRamJet [+]

IMO you could do it now, Triumph must have presumably worked out that the initial stretch happens before the initial 12k of running, so it should then have remained pretty much the same from there on. However I don't think I would be that concerned on a bike out of warranty if it is 'emissions' related (unless I suspected a smoky exhaust) .... unless the MOT mob were to introduce emission gas tests for bikes and they were to be applied retrospectively to vehicles pre the proposed new testing.
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: MuddySump on January 28, 2016, 11:34:22 AM
Don't remember anything about the emissions as one of the reasons for the the chain adjust. Bikes don't even get tested like cars do. Once they leave the factory that is it.
Title: Re: Service videos
Post by: Stevie.P on January 28, 2016, 11:59:54 AM
Hi Dave
As said, this is what I was told by my dealers mech ... for what it is worth. I agree that emissions are not tested like cars but that obviously doesn't excuse a manufacturer complying with the legislation.

If indeed the emission reason given is valid, maybe because most owners will complete the 12k within the makers warranty period they have included the adjustment in the service requirement to maintain the original compliance by their authorised dealers?

Whatever the reason as I will certainly exceed 12k within the warranty period and have the service I certainly hope I get the adjustmenrs I pay for.
Title: Re: Service videos - Thanks
Post by: RogerRamJet on February 22, 2016, 11:38:15 PM
Just completed the 12K (actually 24K) valve check and luckily there were all within specs  :123:

In addition to that I had a noisy cam chain (occasionally) and a needed to replace the tensioner.

The videos were without question the key to getting the job(s) done.

Endless thanks to Muddysump. If I should find myself on your side of the pond again,  I owe you at least a few pints. :031:
