Default Tiger Maintenance

I completed the 12000 mile maintenance yesterday. Valve lash all within spec.









The spark plug center electrodes were well worn and needed replaced.


Air filter replaced.




New radiator guard installed.


Hooked up the laptop and checked the throttle balance and for any fault codes, all good.

In the cylinder head of course.


You can see the tops (white & green sticker) of #1 & 2 spark plug coils in this photo.
