Suspension and Chassis Set-up and Mods / Re: Clutch

Hello everyone
While holding the clutch down with first gear on and giving around 3000 RPM makes my tiger 1050 moving slightly forwards.
Is it normal or is it a issue
I was told that is a feature anti stall which makes sense to me but still in doubt
Thanks guys

Why would you do that, there's bound to be some drag, if only from the oil.

Now try engine off, in 1st gear, clutch in & push, it'll be harder than in neutral & may differ by oil used.

Sounds like a little too much slack in the clutch cable, so not enough movement to fully release the clutch, allowing a degree of drag, check how much free play there is on the clutch lever before it starts to pull the cable
There's no anti-stall device on a Tiger, not sure how a dragging clutch would help that!

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring Issues / Re: Auxiliary spotlights switch on off
« Last post by ZuluTiger on 01 December, 2022, 11:00:23 pm »
What you are after is pretty simple. It will just need one extra relay. You interrupt the feed you already have by routing it through the contact on the new relay. Then, you connect the coil (pickup) of the relay to a switched source that only energizes when the ignition or another lighting circuit is on. I'd pick a source that is only on when lighting is needed, then tap into it to power the relay. In fact, in your case, you need a supply that is 'dead' when you switch off your ignition. Depending on your electrical skill level, this is simple, but you need to decide when you want to be able to 'switch on' in order to choose a source. I'm just sketching the solution as I am only familiar with my 2009 wiring which would be simple to modify.

PS: I HOPE that the supply to your lights has a fuse very close to the battery or you are at risk. If not, fix that.

PPS: When adding a relay, you'll need a switched (+), and a (-). DON'T ground the negative to the frame. Rather tap off an existing Ground / Earth wire. They are usually black. Be careful, this can go wrong in a hurry if you are not careful. Ask a knowledgeable friend if you are not confident!

If your main intention is to stop anyone turning the lights on and draining the battery (or to turn them off if you forget) why not just power them off a switched feed. If the aux lights are LED you could just tap them into your side lights, still using the switch to turn them off.
That is how I wired mine initially. I have subsequently installed a Fuzeblock as I needed multiple additional power sources.

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring Issues / Auxiliary spotlights switch on off
« Last post by Carlos pinto on 01 December, 2022, 08:14:53 pm »
I've auxiliary spotlights on my tiger 1050 connected direct to the battery.
I wonder if I can add another switch out of view to prevent the kids messing with the lights.
Using the side stand as a secondary switch or a paralleled installation.
Any suggestion from triumph experienced people.
I would appreciated any suggestion
Thanks

Finally got it all done and working  :152:

wedge a flat blade screwdriver, chisel or something wedge shaped between a flat on the nut and the wall of the recess.
