So, I just bought this 2010 Tiger 1050 with 29k. I've been searching for days and answers are spread everywhere. So here's what I've noticed, what I've got, and what I want to do, but I'd like some of you Gurus to chime in.
Ok, my bike was having a huge vibration, or chatter in 6th gear around light throttle. Checked tire pressure and lubes the chain. Went on a 350 mile ride and it was barely noticable. Couldn't determine if it was timing chain, or serious spark knock. Then I went on another 200 mile trip and it got worse. Turns out...the chain needed tightening causing the chatter to resonate from what I thought was the engine. New chain and sprockets are on the way.
In the meantime I have bought/ordered alot of things.
It is stock. Stock airbox, snorkel, pipe, nothing performance or suggested modifications to the way it runs. Ordered TuneECU and pulled current log. It has a 20548.
So...here is my 1st question. I have a 19/44 sprocket combo. The speedometer is balls dead on perfect GPS verified. So, does that mean that someone had tuned a correction into the ECU, or is it just luck? Or, does it have some kind of correction module on it somewhere? Will a new tune erase a speedo correction?
If I block off and remove the SAI, what else do I have to do? Do I need the healtech pair system eliminator module, or just put in a non SAI tune?
I have bought new Irridium plugs, K&N or BMC filter, Arrow street can, gutting the CAT, removing or modifying the airbox/snorkel, and the PAIR removal module......so which tune should I be using?
What else am I missing to make this the most enjoyable machine? I live in Northeast Georgia, USA. 665 ft elevation. But usually ride between 1200 to 6000 ft mountains. Sport/spirited weekends.
