Hi and welcome Philber.
I part x my Tiger 800, do I miss it no, do I miss the cruise control no as I used to forget I had it. But I do miss the self canceling indicators, but otherwise the 950 is a great bike  :400:

Welcome to the forum I don't think any one on this forum has suffered petrol leakes
The problem should have been sorted before you collected the bike. Ps you never said the most important piece of information..... It's colour!!   :305:
Red or dead

Hi and welcome Philber.
But I do miss the self canceling indicators, but otherwise the 950 is a great bike  :400:

From the manual:

If the turn indicator is not reset manually, the instrument panel will automatically switch it off after the motorcycle has travelled 500 m (0.3 miles) from when the turn indicator was activated. The counter for the distance travelled for automatic deactivation is only activated at speeds below 80 km/h (50 mph).
If the calculation of the distance for automatic deactivation is activated and then the motorcycle exceeds a speed of 80 km/h (50 mph), the calculation will be interrupted and will restart when the speed returns below the indicated threshold.

Is this not the case?

..and hi Philber, welcome.

I found the indicators annoying to begin with - but you soon get used to manually cancelling them.
Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight
