Hey guys!

I'm Daniel from The Netherlands and I own a blue '95 Tiger 900 (T400).
I've had some issues with this bike, but it's getting there.
Hopefully I can help some of you out, or vice versa :)

So far I've
- had to replace the chain sliders (they're rubbish),
- replace the spark caps/wires (corroded)
- revise the brakes (completely stuck)
- replace the fuel pet-cock thing (it was leaking)
- tune carbs
- replace tacho cable 3 times (kept breaking due to weird install angle on the fork/wheel)

Maintenance
- replace cam-chain and tensioner (by a mechanic)
- check cam clearances (by a mechanic)
- replace air-intake silencer

I also upgraded some things:
- K&N airfilter
- steel braided brake hoses (Hel)
- hyperpro suspension front and back (massive improvement!!!)
- Heed crash bars (hell of a job to get the right one on!)
- bi-xenon headlights
- heated grips
- zumo gps mount
- custom fuse-box for aux. connected to starter engine relais

There's probably more, but I think I forgot (or don't want to remember :D )

I've noticed the tank doesn't really like to fit in the bolt holes designed for it.
Also, the bodywork doesn't really line up with the tank :crying:

Welcome to the forum!

When these old Tigers were still new I used to think they were ugly. But as time goes on I really like them more and more and find myself wanting to get my hands on one. I hope you get yours perfecting sorted and riding like new!

Does that sort out the horrible (non-existent) dampening? My Tiger feels like no dampening at all. I would be keen to be able to harden that. Is that a new shock in the rear? How about the front? Thx!
