Tiger 800 Vacuum Connection Guide
Please read the following notes carefully, before installation of your Tiger 800 Edition vSystem kit.
The vacuum connection on Triumph Tiger 800 models varies, depending on when, exactly the machine was manufactured, and in which country it was sold in. Comparing the photos below with your own bike will help you determine which model you have and, which parts from the kit should be used.
2011- 2014 models
Installation is the easiest on these models, as the vacuum spigot is visible and easy to reach. Standing on the right side of the bike, you can look through the frame and see the vacuum spigot with a rubber cap, pointing backwards, on the rear of throttle body No.3.
Simply remove the rubber cap.....
...., and push the thin, black vacuum tubing into the black vacuum damper and push the vacuum damper onto the spigot.
Route your vacuum tubing neatly from the vacuum damper to your reservoir, avoiding any throttle cables or linkages and hot engine or exhaust components.
Remove the rubber cap....
... and push on the (Grey, 6mm) vacuum damper from the Tiger 800 Edition kit firmly onto the tee connector, and route the vacuum tubing neatly from here to the top of the RMV.
Scottoiler recommend this kit is installed by trained a technician.
