Like you I have read loads on the subject regarding various fixes and mods but none seem to be definitive. As far as my own bike is concerned I believe the problem is worn/old parts as the problem did not manifest itself until I had over 85k miles on the clock. Pretty sure the oil type is a red herring as have used the same oil for about 170k miles on two 955i Tigers and haven't experienced the problem until very recently.

As I haven't changed the steels I am going there next and will also do some work on the clutch basket to remove and notches which will hopefully improve the situation. Might see if I can get a 2013 Tiger clutch rod and put it in while I am there as hopefully its a relatively cheap part.

If I was starting again I would probably go with something like this from the start (hindsight is a wonderful thing)

Yes I am still here,................ I think.  I am near Sedgefield, if you want to meet up, The Heather Laddie at Quarington Hill is a local biker's pub, and a rather eccentric place.

Ok, bit more info. Seems Triumph themselves have modded the clutch rod, came in on a VIN number sometime in 2013/4 on the Tiger Sport. It has a spiral oil way machined into the rear section. Some people are saying this is an upgrade for all 1050's and yet Triumph still list both on the parts fiche? And Ive found 1 guy who modded his own by machining but in fact is still having issues anyway, type of oil is getting blamed too but not sure how accurate that is.

Having this problem again on my 955 (06 model with 1050 clutch). If it all gets hot I have to adjust the cable as it gets a bit of slack in it.

Not going to file the rod for the time being but will be replacing the steel plates and checking the clutch basket shortly. I have already replaced the friction plates, rod and most of the other parts.

Having been in 1050 land for a little while Ive picked up some info about the issue, apparently quite a few 1050 Tigers in 2007/08 had this issue from the factory, Triumphs fix at the time was to get them back remove the clutch and soak the plates in engine oil over night, many report this fixed it for quite a while, a guy called Hamlin who runs a Triumph workshop came up with a fix that gets round removing the clutch:  Basically, you over fill the bike with engine oil and get the bike leaned over to the right as much as possible, (45%)  without letting fall, straps or wood blocks etc, then leave it again overnight with the clutch lever zip tied back to the handle bars. Obviously you dont start the engine next day until youve drained the excess out. He maintains this has fixed the majority of bikes that have come through his workshop.  Im still waiting on finding out what the filing/machining mod involves
