Instructions for Front Wheel Removal
« on: July 12, 2012, 06:10:58 PM »
I can't seem to find a source for a proper Service Manual for the Tiger Explorer, so wondered if anyone has any documents that describe the correct sequence of undoing the clamp bolts, caliper removal and then axle removal.  :031:

More importantly, while I can probably work it out for myself after 42 years of doing all my own bike maintenance, the main need is for the correct torque values for doing all of the bolts up on re-assembly.

I asked Haynes about a manual, apparently they may do one when there are enough bikes in use.  Not sure how many "enough" is. :082:   but I can see their point, they need enough potential sales to justify the publication.

Cheers,
RDA
Hope this blasted rain stops sometime this month :440:
Safe Riding,

That's the sort of thing that should be in the Owner's handbook - however I just checked and although the rear wheel nuts are listed (70nm), nothing related to the front wheel or the callipers is listed... Doh!  :232:

Thanks Colin,

When I got the bike, I read the Owners Manual in detail cover to cover and wrote down any maintenance data, of which there is not much and certainly less than in my other (Japanese bikes' books, (and have sent an email listing various errors in it to BulldogTriumph).

As you say, apart from the torques for the rear wheel nuts, almost no other useful information.  I regard the lack of proper servicing data available to the owner to be a bad thing for safety.  After 42 years of doing all of my own servicing, I am certain that I will take more care than an 18 year-old in a workshop!! :232:  The lack of information in the Owners Manual must be deliberate, to try to force owners to pay through the nose for every little job.  I wish I could get to talk to someone from Triumph who could justify their position.  The Triumphs I rode when young all had proper service manuals available from new. 
Anyway, rant over :031:

Next job at the weekend is fitting the new PowerBronze Hugger to the rear, hope it stops raining.
Cheers

Gerbals,
On behalf of everyone I thank you.
I don't need the info yet but agree with everyone else.
How can an owner keep on top of general maintenance without torque settings.

Especially given Triumphs record of producing self loosening nuts and bolts.

My pleasure  :028:  Agreed, we should try and get a service manual in .pdf format out of triumph somehow......

I for one would like to double check all bolts on my bike.....

Hey Richard. Shop manuals are available from your dealer, part # has been posted on the forum multiple times. Walk up to the parts desk and tell them you want to order part #____

Use the search function on the forum for "shop manual" and it will yield the part number and price for you

Hope that helps
