When did that infamous fault creep in? They had it right on the Loop models until their demise in 1974.It certainly makes you wonder why the company took such a retrograde step.It can't have been to save money as with other dubious decisions made in the seventies.

Just mentioning it in case anyone fancies seeing one in the flesh, or booking a demo ride


Thanks. Thumbs Up I might well take a trundle over there on my Tiger 800. I'm in St.Albans, so not too far away.

I suspect more likely the quality / working life of the ancillaries they bought in, not a deliberate fault. LOL

Except those models whose ECU won't let if start it thinks battery is too low. Ouch

Or am I wrong...
