Best map for standard set up
« on: 02 July, 2018, 08:51:44 PM »
Hi,
I have a 2010 standard Tiger 1050 ABS.
The standard map seems to have a non progressive throttle response.
I have no intention of de-catting or carrying out the air box mod so my question is if theres a specific map I could apply that would make the bike run better?

I interpret your statement as meaning 'snatchy' or uneven? At low throttle openings perhaps?

If so, lot of standard things you can check before starting any mods. New plugs and air filter first (to rule them out), check throttle bodies are properly balanced (critical item), minimise any play in throttle cables (2 mm), Also run a couple of tanks of injector cleaner in the fuel, to clean off any carbon on the injectors. Then see how she's doing after that.

Thanks for the advice. The bike has only done 7000 miles so Im not sure if new plugs would be needed.
That said, Im happy to replace them if it makes a difference.
I have tuneecu so I can check the throttle bodies. However, I wouldnt know how to adjust them if theres a noticeable difference between the readings.

Good chance those plugs might be originals. If so, worth changing just to make sure it's not that. Also make sure that they are 8's rather than 9's.

Lots of info on TuneECU in the stickies - adjusting the balance is really quite simple - you only have to be a slight contortionist.  :002:  Also look on YouTube.

Dave73's tune seems to be the best stock tune:  https://1drv.ms/u/s!AoDk_yuyvRXThfJM0dsHhsId3Wue3w

I found that fitting a Booster Plug was also a great help.

By all means change your plugs, however the symptoms you discuss are not uncommon.

Good luck  :031:

The recommended plugs are mentioned in the stickies on here ... Triumph changed its recommendation after the first few production years, I think your bike should have had the later ones as standard, but worth checking.

7k, doesn't need plugs, lot of dismantling for no reason,
not particularly hot on tunes but I would say arrow road would be a safe bet,
also heard boosterplug makes a difference also heard it doesn't  :027:

I have the Arrow road map (20542) on my 2010 Se, has always been snatchy at low rpm   :151: - I am going to change it for Daves V2 map as several others have said its good for a std bike (with cat & SAI)
I have lived with it for a while now but getting fed up of the snatchiness.  :157:
but maybe I should go with YD's recommendation to try a different map a week to see what fits best  :084:
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE .... got there in the end.

I'd be interested to hear how you get on, I get the same snatch at low rpm.  It's the only thing I don't like about the bike.  I will get around to playing with tunes myself but just haven't been able to find the time as yet, got the cable etc but no time.  Mine is standard as far as I know with an Arrow can.
Also have BMW K1200RS, XJR1300SP (Yellow of course) and a WR250F
