    Tiz a fair point about the oil .....  I just changed mine yesterday as I wasn't due a 6 or 12k service.... appreciate that not everyone can do that themselves, or would want too.

    Would be nice to have that choice tho   :002:

    Don't see why a Triumph should require a service every 6k..  .. its hardly cutting eqdge race bred technology  ... other manufactures can manage it.

    Triumph can manage it also, just not on the Tiger900?

    The Tiger1200, Tiger660, Trident660, Speed twin1200, Speed 400, etc. are all 10k mile service intervals, so what is the problem with the T900?

    Is it because Triumph thinks some people are crazy enough to go trail riding on them, so will need more regular servicing? I would change the oil & filter on my trail bike every 600miles. As against 3k miles on my T800.
    Current bikes Tiger800 XRx, Tiger Sport 1050, Ariel FH 650, Yam Serow 225.

    Ok, you caught me. I should have been more specific. I wonder if any of the software upgrades can be used on the earlier 900ís. Maybe the ones that raised the MPG and HP.

    The MPG and HP changes will be software in conjunction with the new pistons and the new exhaust amongst I'm sure other mechanical changes how can software alone do that?

    Yeah ...I think the elongated  zorst will also mean a few other tweeks such as ports / valves ... maybe even timing may be required along with the software ....

    These bikes may have a 10k service interval, but it's 10k or annual oil change :138:

    I have always wondered what  :187:  the gap in the rear fender was for :087: and why it is still there in the new 2024 model  :138:

    I change oil & filter every 3k, doesn't everyone.

    Waste of time, money and resources but itís your time and money. The world resources and the excessive use of products is of course a separate discussion.
    The engineers at Triumph and the oil industry know way more about the 21st century properties of oil and itís long term performance than anybody on this forum who relies on concepts from the 1950s relating to oil change requirements.
