I am taking delivery of a Tiger which probably has a shot rectifier. I’ve already gotten one from a breaker, as it was too good a deal to pass up. Anyway, are there any how-to’s on the subject? Just wondering whether I need to take the whole thing apart, or whether I can get away with just loosening up the radiator to wriggle it in. ;)

(By the way, I did read up on the air filter change and it seems not much has changed since the steamer... It still is a heck of a lot of work.  :icon_lol:)

If I remember, loosening the radiator mounts and allowing it to drop forward should give you enough room, but please check before you do, I'm not always right, unlike my better half....

My Missus says I only have two faults.

1. I don't listen
2. some other stuff she was rabbiting on about.

Just to update the thread...

Pulled apart half the front end of the Tiger 800XC today, changed the rectifier by pulling the radiator aside etc. and fixed the bike. :)
