Hi to all from newbie in Cheshire
on: 03 May, 2021, 01:46:03 PM
Hi all my name's Phil from Cheshire and have recently bought a 2014 Tiger Sport on 22K.
Glad to be part of the group as I've seen how helpful and friendly you all are, and with all the help and advice, getting the best from my bike.
I too have a snatchy throttle and have a Remus system and will check the throttle play but if anyone can suggest a suitable fix or recommend a remap or specialist to do it I'd be grateful to hear from you.
Previously had a Sprint ST 955 which was smooth as silk so good to see some of you have sorted this issue.
Thanks, Phil

I also had a ST955, a '99 bought new, wrote off after 11 years, best bike ever. Bought a ST1050, snatchy throttle, hated it, chopped in for '14 TS, when you say snatchy, I'm wondering is it the horrible snatchy like my ST1050 or the initial surge of our Gen1 TS's, like when it comes out & that initial set off, like it has a quick action throttle, it's ok after that. Mine is all stock on the engine/inlet/exhaust side. Some of the boys have fitted a/m cans & changed maps, they'll be along.

Yes it's the horrible snatchy throttle at low gears/speeds through traffic, coming out of corners etc. If it was just on initial set off I'd get used to it but this is awful and occasionally unnerving. Had my ST955 for 11 years and sold it to a friend in A1 condition. Always loved the Tiger and wanted one for years. I'm 6ft 5" and love everything about it and if I can sort the throttle out I'll be proper chuffed.

Sounding similar to my ST1050, worse going on r/abouts or hairpins, open the throttle coming out & it came in with a snatch. Had to ride it on the clutch. Took it back to dealers, "Chief Technician" took it out, & said "Your chain needs adjusting", & walked off, waste of space. Some boys said theirs were same, others were ok. I read that issue was sorted with factory mapping in 2011.

I had the ST955 & ST1050 together for 2 years, you can guess which got used most.

 :401: First things to sort on your throttle are to ensure injectors are clean and throttle bodides are balanced. Use the best fuel you can get, run a couple of tanks with injector cleaner in, and learn about the TuneECU app to help balance your TBs.

Might also be worth changing plugs and air filter to start with (and don't believe your dealer if he says the air filter's been changed - it generally hasn't in my experience).

 :0461: with Paul2&Paullie but the 12 minute adaptation reset can often cure a snatchy throttle

Thanks for all the advice and feedback guys. Got it booked in with my local Triumph dealer who's going to check everything over and see if there's any mods or upgrades that need doing. They also mentioned the Arrow map which could be an option. Doing it all for a fair price so it's a starting point and I'll update you on the progress, thanks again.
