Never heard of it before, but on the face of it, it worries me! It sounds like a device to put the spongyness back into your brakes and make them feel like the old days with non-braided hoses again....somehow reducing your effective pressure! Yes, I suppose it could prevent your brakes from locking up but so would using less pressure on the lever!

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.

Where can I find cam specs for Triumph triple, 1998-2004 for example. I want to tune it down a tad. mvh SA

Hi,when I used to drive bikes I found the easyest way to sort out the torque was to change the sprockets this can make a big difference in exselleration and top end,and this is a lot less cost,seek some help on this before you start changing cams.
Hope this was some help.

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
Hope this helps

Cams gone floppy

If you can't adjust your cams then the problem usually lies with the bracket that holds your rear brake caliper on. It goes through the rear axle bolt as well. Ok, this is the tricky bit to explain so bear with me When you take the bracket off you will notice it has a bearing. The bearing is supposed to be free moving inside the bracket but because they are made of different materials (I think) they corrode and seize. You will need to heat the bracket up so it expands, then put a suitably large socket (or something similar) over the bearing and with a soft mallet hammer it out. Give it a good going over with wet & dry, then lube it with Copperslip and slide it back in. By the way, it would be a good time to put some Copperslip on your cams as well. Your eccentric cams should turn really smoothly after that. Also, Tiger chains are a pain in the arse (IMHO), I can never quite seem to get the adjustment right. Most people on here advise you to have it slacker than the manual suggests, as when you sit on the bike and take up the suspension travel, the chain will be tighter.

Can I go off road?

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.
