Recall Is Offical

I wonder how many units are involved world wide.  This article says 1485 in the US alone.  Glad Triumph got the fix out there sooner than later.  I wonder if our data from our bikes may have helped?  Either way this is great news for the bike!


Triumph issued a recall for the 2011 and 2012 Tiger 800 and 800XC adventure tourers due to a bug in the engine management software.

According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Triumph Tigers’ 800cc Triple engine may stall during deceleration. Riders may also notice lower RPMs indicated on the tachometer at idle.

Triumph first received reports of an engine stalling in June. An investigation identified the engine management software as the source of the problem. Triumph developed a new software update that addresses the issue and began implementing it on units with VIN 514872 and later.

Dealers will install the updated engine management software onto the electronic control units on recalled units. The recall involves 1,485 units in the U.S.


  1. Though I have not had a problem, I had my ECU flashed today. I only have half the mileage on my XC that you all have on yours. So for me it was preventive.

      Keep us informed if your bike stays healthy. One guy so far got the update and had no stalling issues and is now saying he has stalled. Did you get a new air filter? We were told new or clean air filters were also part of the update.

    Sorry that this is not at all related to the post, but I gotta say you two are so inspiring. I followed your journeys on ADV throughout the summer and am so proud to know you’re my (relatively speaking) neighbours. You’re just wonderful ambassadors for humanity. Hope Triumph fixes the error, I will be seriously looking at it when the time comes.
