The repair included reducing the rake to 25.8 degrees for quicker steering, and laser alignment of the geometry between the steering head, swing arm pivot, axles, and footpegs.
I was extremely pleased with the service, the cost reasonable; and without my request, they repaired the bent OEM centerstand.
I assembled most of the bike today to test the engine systems and electricals. Only glitch were the fuel line O-rings have dried out. A common issue discussed on TigerTriple.com .Will replace with 7/16" OD x 5/16 ID x 1/16" thick Viton seals. Purging air from the cooling system takes quite a bit of time and patience.
Note: Colder Products Company makes the quick disconnect fittings. Part # AS568-11 . Triumph had a recall in 2003 on the fuel fitting issue: 1999-2003 Tigers came from the factory with all-plastic fuel line fittings at the tank, and are known to split, causing gasoline leaks. This was the subject of a factory recall in 2003. 2004 models have improved (partially metal) fittings. All-metal fittings can be had from TeamTriumph... http://www.triumph1.com/tiger.htm . These items are not needed for (and will not fit) 2005-06 models, as they have a slightly different fuel system.
