Check your battery - if its still the YTX12 in there you need to change to a YTZ14.  The 12 does not have enough power to crank the 1050 when hot.

Have to admit, I thought about the battery too in those temps when I started reading this post. 

OP, recommend you start reading here:  https://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/topic,21627.0.html, especially the NEW TO YOU TIGER section.  There's a cooling system section in particular that should be helpful.  T1050 is great when sorted - will be worth your efforts in the end!

I知 thinking I値l invest in good noise cancelling ear buds or at the very least in ear plugs. The more I read the more I realize I知 going to be chasing down an impossible fix...it痴 the nature of the bike I知 heating. Thx

Try Engine Ice. Great coolant.  :405: congrats on purchase. Not a perfect bike. But...... it sure is a sweet ride. Hides its weight well. Welcome, good luck.

I've owned a couple of Tiger 1050s, the advice given is spot on.  It's a known issue that there might be casting sanding plugging things up so a good flush, new thermostat and cap should put you right.  If that doesn't do it, next would be to remove the radiator and have a really good flush done.

And don't forget the battery change! Don't think about it, just buy a new one  - YTZ14 (don't forget the 'Z'). If you faff around too long with your starter making strange noises, you will do much more serious, and costly, damage.
