Clutching up a wheelie has to be the most abusive way ever especially as the tiger will do it on torque alone easily in 1st gear and with a small road bump or over the lip of a rise in second  with traction control turned off

They will also leave black limes out of round a bouts and slow corners depending in rider skill levels

I learnt all these sort of things riding moto x bikes when I was 5-6-years old and still have to tell myself to pull my head in

A wheelie in NZ will get you a dangerous driving charge and an instant roadside license suspension if caught

That is why I love bikes with Traction control as they stop me doing this kind of thing automatically

MY ZX14-R  went through 7 rear tyres in 13,400 km's and only 2 fronts as I had the ecu flashed and could leave the Traction control off with no auto reset

Having to get the dealer identify the cause of a MIL (CEL) wouldn't be necessary if a basic OBDII diagnostic scanner was part of every riders tool box. At about 15 bucks it's a no brainer. And of course for pre-RbW bikes TuneECU makes it even easier.

Whilst it won't help identify a mechanical failure or fix the fault you get an idea of what's wrong instantly.

With a Sport model it's even simpler and cheaper than that: switching the ignition on while pressing both "up" and "info" buttons will display all stored codes on the dashboard.

Great information. Thanks  :062:

I find TuneECU for my Sport pretty useless, other than for the most basic stuff.

Very useful indeed!  :460:  Is that info in the handbook?

And does anybody actually read the handbook ... ?    :002:

I found this info some years ago, browsing through the Explorer forum; made a try with my Sport and it worked.
Actually, there's no reference for this videogame buttons combo in Triumph service manuals, I wonder how it was firstly being acknowledged.
