Clutch actuator switch
« on: 11 June, 2019, 06:01:08 AM »
After I added new clutch springs to my
2009 and put it back together the bike wouldn't start.  I finally traced it to a faulty clutch actuator switch.  I took it apart and cleaned it and lubricated it and still wouldn't work.  So I just decided to clip the plunger and voila!  Bike starts like normal....only thing is I have to remember to always have the clutch in while starting in gear or bad things will happen.  Now my fuel gauge will not read full bars.  I read on the Triumphrat that the fuel gauge receives a signal though the ECU from the actuator switch...can anyone verify this?  If I have to get a new actuator switch to.get my fuel gauge to work then I guess that's what I have to do.  Anyone ever had to replace one?

Yep, this has come up before, the clutch switch actually does quite a bit in the background. On the 1050 I believe it only comes as part of the L/H switch cube assembly, but somebody found that the switch from earlier 955 Tigers is the same, you just have to splice it into the wiring yourself

I remember researching this when I had problems. Turns out there is a sticky about it too.

The ECU uses that signal for a lot of voodoo, not just the starting interlock, so bypassing it is not a good idea. And number 2 on the list seems to align with your experience.

Wow....I just got schooled.  And to think I just thought that actuator switch just kept you from accidently starting the bike in gear.  There is a part number for the switch but it looks like 2006 is the last year for the Tiger.  Don't really want to order the whole assembly:(
