This is how the bike ended up
From this state it was possible to service many of the parts, carb clean, coolant flush and change, many things in fact, but the biggest problem was, and still is, getting to the spark plugs.
From the already stripped bike two more panels need to be removed, difficult to describe as they appear to have no purpose unless they are to hide the plugs from wandering sparkplug thief’s.
It is at this point you realise that you need a tool you do not own to remove that pesky central plug. What a way to spend your relaxing holiday time.
Still it did make it back into one piece at the end of the second day, and more amazingly it still worked, mostly.
Whilst this limited information will not assist you in servicing your bike I can at least impart some knowledge as the effort and time this took makes me an expert. So if you find yourself planning a service on your Triumph Tiger I am well qualified to inform you that it is worth the money to get it done for you.
