I've been riding for 28 years and had all types and sizes of bikes over the years, the last 8 being Triumph (inc a 900i Tiger and a 955i Tiger) think I'll be keeping this for some time!

Changed over from years of sports bikes and appreciate the more relaxed riding position. Engine it tractable and does have a bit of poke if taken over 6k revs. Touring screen is better than standard once adjust Continue reading...

Hi, I have a Tiger 800 and find the low gel seat still too high, it doesn't make much difference to the original as your legs just hit the frame being a wide bike.

I am thinking of buying a lowering kit as 1'' more would make all the difference, i am 5'8"

Can anyone recommend a quality system, i have seen lust links they seem fine, has anyone had theirs lowered?

Probably a bit bit late to awnser the lowering kit as you may well of done it, but I have the lowering kit fitted which has made all the differance as Im 5ft 8" also.

Hopefully your still around Graham? I ve just bought a Tiger 800 and Im 5'8" as well and yes Im not feeling too confident on it especially as its my first bike.  I have the lowered seat and now want to get the bike lowered.  Im not wanting to do it myself.  Any tips on where to get it done - I live just north of M25 near St Albans.  Also any info on warranty and insurance issues.  Thank for any advice.

How are you getting on?

Would you recommend the 800 to another beginner for a first bike?
