UPDATE.

Fowlers have confirmed it's a some sort of catastrophic failure but haven't let on any more, which is a bit of a let down  :027:

It was the clutch, but that's all I know.

After major issues with the clutch on my 8mth old 4kmls Tiger 1200 I've let it go. It was almost impossible to release the clutch without the bike getting into some major juddering fit. It's been back to the dealer twice and had all sorts of new bits fitted, sadly to no avail. Sad, because apart from this problem it was a fantastic bike.
I tried to do a deal with the supplying dealer for a mint low mileage Gen 2, which is what I had before the Gen3. They wanted to do me a straight swap, which I was not prepared to do.
So, the Tiger has gone to pastures new, as have I. Yes I could have gotten into the 'Not fit for purpose' and so on and so forth. To be honest, my time is to precious to me to be causing myself any grief.
