Triumph Tiger 885 Spares?
« on: May 09, 2019, 03:06:59 pm »
Hi guys,

I bought a Triumph Tiger 885 in boxes.

So far I seem to miss the pistons and conrods.

Any help will be very welcome

Is it the carburetted motor often called "steamer" in the forums or the fuel injected "girlie"

My Tiger is a 1995 model.

I found this on the web ...

All Hinckley Triumph engines produced from 1991 to 1995 had the same 76mm pistons and iron cylinder liners. The only difference was in the stroke (55mm or 65mm) or number of cylinders (three or four). This is the essence of the T3 engine series.

I am also missing cylinder sleevs.

Also ...

The first Hinckley Thunderbirds T3 series, were very similar to the other triples in the range - same pistons and liners as the Trident, Speed Triple etc. The cases are different though essentially in only cosmetic ways.

The advent of the T5 series, specifically the T595, changed this - 79mm pistons and nikasil coated alloy liners came along with a completely new engine design. The stroke was the same 65mm as the T3 900 and 1200 motors and gudgeon pin size is the same. I think the conrods are also the same. So Hinckley triples eventually all became 955 cc, courtesy of a 3mm wider bore (pie ar squared eitch times three = 955825.652).

Very nice bike to rebuild. I'll have a chat with my dad, he's got all sorts of bits from triumphs in his workshop. Should be back next week so I'll let you know
