Triumph Tiger

Welcome to the webBikeWorld Triumph Tiger page!  Information about Triumph Tiger parts, accessories, repair, maintenance and more! 

Much of this information is also available through other sources, but we figured our Tiger "hack" bike is an integral part of the webBikeWorld team and, as such, it deserves its own page!

Triumph Tiger Owners, Clubs, Email lists and Resources:  A wBW page that has a listing of Triumph email lists and groups, with information on how to join One of the best Tiger resources is the Yahoo! Triumph Tiger list, with over 2,300 members and the Tiger Owners list with over 675 members!  These are active groups with plenty of help from Tiger owners  |  Also visit the Triumph Tiger website for "Everything About Tigers"; lots of discussion and help topics in the forum

Steamer vs. Girlie?:  What's that all about?  Just a lot of good fun between Tiger owners actually...  The "Steamer" refers to the early (Hinckley) Tigers, from 1995 to 1998.  The "Girlie" Tigers are the '99 and on bikes with the, shall we say, Rubenesque body configuration?  (Steamer owners know which one is best!)

Sealed Spoke Wheels:  Woody's Wheel Works will seal the Tiger's spoked wheels so they can run without tubes  |  See the wBW Motorcycle Wheels page for more information

Triumph Tiger Seat

Tiger Tips:  Having problems getting your stock Triumph seat locked after it's been removed?  Line up the seat, place your elbow over the location of the seat and push.  If the seat pin is correctly lined up with the lock underneath, it should click right into place!

Triumph Tiger Took Kit

Tiger Tool Kit:  The standard tool kit for the Tiger as supplied by the factory includes hex wrenches (aka Allen wrenches) in sizes 12, 8, 6, 5, 4 and 3 mm; a 17mm and 8mm open end wrench; 17mm box wrench; cheater bar; spark plug wrench (which does not fit the spark plugs on my Tiger); and an el Cheapo screwdriver with a reversible Phillips and flat tip.
