Also, they mention that there is a low RPM stall issue with the Tiger…we had that but thought the recall back in August 2011 took care of that…if anyone is reading this and rides the Tiger 8oo are you still stalling? It sure sucked stalling for our entire trip but if it is still happening with owners out there we would like to hear about it.
