Owner's Manual, Tiger 1200xRT, 2018, Gen 3
on: February 11, 2020, 07:00:43 PM
Hi Guys -

Has anyone received a hard copy of this when you purchased your Gen 3 bike? I can't seem top locate the actual manual for sale anywhere. I know it can be downloaded for free off the Triumphmotorcycles.com website (as well as others), but is there an option to purchase a hard copy? (Publication #3855518-EN/US issue 1)

The last owner's manual number I can seem to find in hard copy is Publication #3851509-US issue 1. The newer one above (3855518) covers the new switch gear  and the new multi-function color screen. #3851509 covers the models up to 2016/17, when they had the "analog" tach and b/w screens on either side of tacho.

I'm computer savvy and realize that I can download the manual (which I have done), but when it comes to "books", I'm a Luddite! I like to hold and feel the pages as I read something....

I'm going to try and call a local dealership and check it out, but I thought I'd ask the collective hive-mind first.....

Thanks in advance,

Steve

Bought my XRT in the UK last year. Came with the printed Owner's Handbook, publication #3855551-EN (2018) that was inside the folder / rucksack with all the other paperwork, including service book.

The downloadable version with publication #3855518-EN is dated 2017, but I'm not sure if you can buy either. Your supplying dealer should be able to provide one FoC if they forgot to include it with your bike.
...Desire ends in satisfaction...

Yes, I got one. It was under the rear seat with the toolkit. I would ask the dealer to supply one, it should of come with it.

Along those same lines, I got the printed manual when I bought mine, but also received a nice back pack and zippered document folder.  A buddy of mine just bought a left over 2018 XRT and did get the manual but not the other two items.  Did all 1200 Tiger come with the extras?

Thanks everyone. Although my bike has never seen the road with 6 miles on the odo, it is classified as a used bike b/c it was sold at auction in June of '19 and the dealership that bought the bike at auction had it titled. That kicked in the start of the factory warranty and classified the sale to me as 'used'.

I pulled the wallet trigger and purchased a manual from a local dealership near me.

Thanks to all who replied!

I would suspect that beyond the standard manual/service book, unless it's a factory-originated promotion (like "free" 1K panniers with purchase), all the "extras" are at the discretion of the individual dealer...
