Title: Changing rectifier
Post by: ghulst on August 19, 2019, 09:12:29 PM
I am taking delivery of a Tiger which probably has a shot rectifier. I’ve already gotten one from a breaker, as it was too good a deal to pass up. Anyway, are there any how-to’s on the subject? Just wondering whether I need to take the whole thing apart, or whether I can get away with just loosening up the radiator to wriggle it in. ;)

(By the way, I did read up on the air filter change and it seems not much has changed since the steamer... It still is a heck of a lot of work.  :icon_lol:)

If I remember, loosening the radiator mounts and allowing it to drop forward should give you enough room, but please check before you do, I'm not always right, unlike my better half....

Pinched from another forum...

My Missus says I only have two faults.

1. I don't listen
2. some other stuff she was rabbiting on about.

Just to update the thread...

Pulled apart half the front end of the Tiger 800XC today, changed the rectifier by pulling the radiator aside etc. and fixed the bike. :)

I did like mine, much closer to the Steamer and the XC seemed to handle better than the cast wheel variants, I was told much the same by one of the Triumph development guys during a factory visit back in 2013.

A bargain is hard to pass up when you have spanners doing nothing in the garage  :nod

As I've updated the boards, I have decided I might as well open a new topic on this bike and tell the whole story. ;)
