Hello all! New owner of a 08 Tiger affectionately named The Angry Carrot. Picked it up locally off Facebook Marketplace. 37k miles on the clock, been laid down, but dang if that Trident coupled with a Remus exhaust doesn't sound good. Sealed the deal and promptly encountered the dreaded hot start issue. Realized that letting it idle with high beams and foglights on for 30 minutes was not good. Found this forum and holy cow, there are some incredible tips here. Suffice to say, I've already ordered a Motobatt replacement, a CalSci windscreen, and am currently working on upgrading to 4ga wiring. Still not sure if my issue was lack of revs related or deeper like the R/R or stator. While working on the wiring upgrade, planned on testing stator phases for continuity and R/R for diodes. Thankful this exists and would sure like to buy this Hamlin guy a beer if he's ever in Montana!

Apologies friends,
I'm not coming to grips with the site format been trying to reply for ages then realised I had somehow logged out 🤷‍♂️...
I've not been lurking I just decided to join this forum yesterday to see if folk can recomend a front paddock stand for my model.
The Isle of lewis is a stunning place to live! And to ride, it's most definitely a bit damp generally but when the sun gets out it's fantastic. (Usually 3 days per year)🤣
The soval bends are a couple of miles of twisty's that are very handy for scrubbing your tyres in 😜.
This is my first triumph and like I said, I love it!
We have lots of interesting things to see on Lewis & Harris including the Callanish stones and the Carloway broch. I'm not involved in the annual bike rally (midge biters rally) as I've stopped drinking but I do join them on the bike run on the saturday afternoon. If you ever get a chance to visit the isle of Lewis then take it...

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Re: Hendler Fork Seals
« Last post by Zevk on Yesterday at 10:05:49 PM »
Hi woodie

6 months ago I also changed the fork seals and bushings (inner and outer) on my 2012se and had difficulty seating the seal even with the fork slide hammer you mention

I used an aftermarket set “all balls” I think

You may want to try to apply heat from a heat gun, silicone spray or  bearing grease when you try again…?


Where will you source a new stanchion and how much will it cost…?


Good luck with the repair

I'd never heard of the Isle of Lewis, had to enlist Google. Still not much luck with Soval Bends, but found Soval Lodge. I'm guessing you have rain once in a while and winter needs some wrapping up to keep toasty. Interesting part of the world to be a biker so I look forward to comments about where you ride and what you see. Welcome.

Just found an interesting snippet: You have abundant carnivorous plants due to the many insects. And, temperatures are constant year-round. Amazing. If you don't have a loch-monster over there, then there truly isn't one!  :031:

Hope you find the forum helpful. Didn't say if you had been lurking for the year.  Top each section check the sticky's out.  New to you tiger would have helped a while back.

Look forward to pictures, especially with a trip report.
Great to see the world with a locals eye and the great food.

Hi everyone, I'm new to the Forum and see that I'm supposed to leave a message on the newbie section. I'm trying to find my way around so I'm hoping iv got this right. Had my 1050 sport for a year now. I love it! Bought it from a guy in Dundee and took it home further north.
