Review Detail

I have owned my Black tiger for about six months, since this time I have ridden around Tasmania (Australia) did about 4000kms in 2 weeks. I brought the bike with only 10500 kms on the clock. Overall I am happy with the bike.

I have had two problems so far.

Problem 1. The battery went a week after purchase.( this happens not really an issue, but wasn’t very happy that it went. I was in the middle of nowhere.

Problem 2. I was riding back from a day out with mates, and it was raining very heavy. My blinkers stopped working so when I returned home I checked the Triumph Blogg sight ( very handy) said it may be “relay 7” gone ( this is the blinker relay) as the fuses were good. I also got some electrical repellent spray cleaner, and air pressure hose pump, spray out blinker connections relay connections and fuse box connections after this all worked.

So the front blinker wire connections hang down abit, cable tie up under fairing.

Items to buy to improve bike (all off eBay)

1. Adjustable levers ( if you have small hands or fingers)

2. Radiator / Oil coiler guard protectors

3. Headlight protector

4. KN air filter ( smother power)

5. KN Oil filter ( has built on nut easy to remove)

6. Indium Plugs ( more power, last longer, )

7. Taller screen ( for winter or touring there are many different types’ I used a Cee Baileys)

8. Engine crash bars ( I used Thunderbike, just make sure you use high temp sealant CRV, for bolts that go into crankcase, and don’t over tension)

9. Front and rear fender extenders ( can use from 94- 2001 Yamaha XJ 900 Division will fit with minor mods)

10. 19 front sprocket will lower revs by 500 rpm ( better for open rd)

MODS

1. I moved the rear shock adjustment from under the seat to the inside of the RIGHT passenger peg mount area ( means you don’t have to take the seat of ever time you adjust the shock)

2. Front forks harder progressive springs (haven’t done this yet. But front is quite soft and on Triumph Blogg sights is a common Mod.

Overall I am happy with the 955i ( All I have done cost my about 1000.00 AUS ) and some of my time, They are a great bike with heaps of power 105 HP ( more than a BMW 1200 GS ) and handle very well. Seat high is a problem for shorter riders (like me) but after 43 years I get used to that. They have a great tank size 24 Lts and very comfortable on long trips

I do most off my own servicing, I agree with another blog that getting to the air filter is a big job. Make sure you have a work shop manual; when you change the air filter do the plugs at the same time (kills 2 birds with the one stone)
