Question about 2008 Triumph Tiger

1 Answer

Can I go off road?

Everywhere I hear that the new 1050 tiger is not well suited for off-road. I'm not looking for enduro, I have an MX for that, but just the ability to zip around rough gravel roads. Does anyone have experience with the 1050 in this regard?

I think that the new 1050 is not as convidence inspiring as the older models, but I found it very stable when on wider forest service type roads. The rims are cast, so much more easily bent. My 1050 felt great as I would stand on the pegs and use my body more. Would slide it out to the side a few times, intentially, and did not feel out of control either.

Hi triumph tiger1050 2007 .can only get 4@5 gear but some times all gears come back.thanks Dave.


Hi, David for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

ABS Light burns after monting new tyres. New tyres, Dunlop Rodsteron (front and back) on my Tiger 1050 2008 ABS feels good, but the ABS light is burning :-(. Any experience on this?


Unfortunately you have to go to a Triumph dealer as this is a software problem that needs to be reset via your diagnosic port,the only machine that will do this is a dealer machine or a mac tools ET80 eobd reader which costs about £79 but will read any other engine management problems that you will encounter which seem to come up if you do anything to a triumph,even if you change the battery, If you cant find a mac tools dealer in your area then contact mactools@hotmail.co.uk
Hope this helps

Torque setting


The sprocket nut torque setting is 132Nm. If you are after the plastic cover torque settings, i dont think they have one. Hope this helps.

i've just lowered the front part and that helps, also it seems my beast is easier to handle in corners. i've not lowered the 'backside'. it makes using the 'vertical jiffy' (sorry just can remember the english verb - i'm dutch) that much harder. so to summerize: great idea works for me
