Hello from Vancouver Canada
on: 20 July, 2021, 09:15:48 PM
Hi guys, just wanted to say hi to all the wise folks on here that have provided a tonne of knowledge to the tiger noobs like myself. I just picked up a 2009 tiger 1050 about a week ago. Itís bone stock with 32k kms in pristine condition. Iíve had a sprint st 1050 6 years ago and sold it before moving to Canada. Iíve got a Guzzi v11 as my second bike that just sits in the garage now as I am having too much fun on the tiger. Looking to stick around here for a long time as I love this bike and would like to mod and improve the quirks. Cheers 👍

Cheers mate 👍. I just finished making some adjustments to the suspension and clutch and it rides much better already. I gotta try and hook it up to tuneecu soon and sort out the funny idle. Itís off wee a bit but other than that sheís a sweet ride.

I hooked up the bike to tune ecu and saw the throttle bodies were far from synced. I pulled out the airbox to check the throttle bodies and sure enough they were full of carbon build up. Cleaned up the carbon crud and tried the tune ecu again, it didnít require any adjustments and all 3 throttle bodies reading 600 steady!
 I did the airbox mod too while I was at it and found a bonus k&n filter sitting in there (all thanks to the previous owner).
Next thing on the list is to drill out the cat and find indyís tune. Thatíll do the trick for the tiger as far as the mods go.

Great stuff :028:  But, you should wonder how the carbon crud built up in the TBs, since normally they should be as clean as a whistle. I would ask questions about the K&N filter - personally I prefer the OEM filter, or a much higher spec (and more expensive) one. The other thing to do is look for traces of gunge at the bottom rear of the filter box - have you emptied out the small drain pipe? (there's a small rubber plug in it at the other end, underneath the motor (pull out with pliers, let drain and replace, all in the manual).
