Additional notes regarding the technical specifiaction of Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer:
- The fuel consumption (fuel economy) of a motorcycle shows either the mileage that can be achieved with a certain amount of fuel (mpg) or the amount of fuel needed to cover certain mileage (L/100km). In the specific case the fuel economy of Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer allows you to ride 39.9 miles with one gallon of fuel or in other words it will burn 5.90 liters of fuel on a 100 kilometers (62 miles) run. So if Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer has a tank full of 5.3 gallons of fuel it can be ridden for 210 miles till we run out of gas. Of course we better make sure we top it up again before that happens.
- Engine size (displacement ) of 1215 cc - this is the partial volume of the combustion chamber swept by all the pistons in a single movement from bottom dead center to top dead center. Engines with bigger displacement volume tend to produce more power and usually have bigger fuel consumption. The Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer engine has a displacement volume of 1215 cc according to the specifications above and is specified in cubic centimeters but can also be measured in liters.
- 165 mm ground clearance - this can be defined as the distance between the lowest point of the Tiger 1200 Explorer's chassis and the level ground surface below it. The lower the ground clearance the better the handling but on the contrary higher clearance makes the bike more practical on uneven roads and off-road.Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer bore and stroke diagram
- Bore and stroke 85x71.4 - the bore is a measurement of the inside diameter of the cylinder. The stroke represents the distance traveled by the piston from the top of the cylinder to the bottom (or vice versa) in a single stroke. The diameter of the cylinder of Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer is 85 mm and the piston stroke is 71.4 mm based on the technical specifications above. For this particular Triumph engine bore is bigger than stroke meaning that Tiger 1200 Explorer has a short stroke engine.
- Compression ratio 12:1 - this parameter refers to how the cylinder's space changes from when the piston is down at its lowest point to when the piston is up at its highest point in the stroke. To avoid engine knocking when compression ratio is high those motorcycles might be recommended to use premium fuel only. It plays a big role in engine efficiency because bigger compression ratio means better thermal efficiency and more mileage with the same amount of gas.
- Shaft final drive: Depending on the purpose of the motorcycle and its characteristics usually one among the three possible final drive options is preferred. On sport bikes the chain drive is preferred while most cruisers and touring bikes tend to be designed with belt or shaft drive. Bikes have been designed with all three variations of the final drive for many years and each of them has performed well for the purpose it's been used. The final drive of Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer is shaft.
shaft final drive of  motorcycleShaft drive represents the same technology used in cars. It is smooth, quiet, clean and practically maintenance-free if we exclude the need of draining and changing the oil in the shaft drive reservoir. There are some down points though - they are expensive and heavier than the other two final drive options. Another disadvantage is the lost of power, being it minimum, caused by the moving gears inside them.
- Liquid cooling system: motorcycle engines can be air cooled or liquid cooled and they both have their advantages. Although the liquid cooled motorcycle has a radiator and hoses and require more maintenance it provides better regulated temperature to the engine.How to replace the Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer turn signals
- You can easily find out how to replace the Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer turn signals and quickly do it yourself. When disconnecting the wires of your motorcycle turn signals it is advisable to stick distinct tapes on them if they are not color coded. In the case of box connection all you have to do is clip off both ends (the male and female). Connect the wires properly after the new Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer turn signals are placed in position.UV and dust protection cover for Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer
The motorcycle cover protects the bike from the elements and the dimensions of the Triumph Tiger 1200 Explorer are important when choosing one. Any aftermarket accessories that affect the dimensions of the bike should be considered. To provide a better protection a larger cover will be needed if additional panniers, sissy bar or windshield have been fitted on the motorcycle.
