I've found a handful of articles and forum topics that address the mfg improvements on the 955i from 2005 to 2006, however I am not coming across any information regarding the charging system.  Did Triumph improve/fix the charging system that seems to plague the previous year models?  I keep reading about owner of 2001-05's that added the Sasquach wiring mod, Mosfet regulator and Rick's 40A stator.  I'm NOT running ANY non-stock electrical accessories (phone chargers, GPS, extra lights etc) on my 2006 Tiger.  Should I be concerned?  We only ride on the hard top and our riding is a mix of 85% solo and the rest of the time my wife is with me for weekend trips.

You can look at it anyway you like but your bike is 13 years old and not getting any younger there is War and Piece about Reg/Rec’s and I would certainly think about some preventative maintenance with a more modern one in fact the one I recently fitted has a Sasquatch mod built in.

The alternative view point Timbox had two 955 Tigers and never had an electrical issue with either.

Fit a voltmeter and keep an eye on it is the simplest solution.
