Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring Issues / Re: Intermittent speed display
« Last post by cheezum on Yesterday at 09:21:38 PM »
It's an old post, I realise, but is there any progress on finding the issue?

My Tiger 2009 SE got the same problem.
After reconnecting the cable (on the backside of the panel) the display is functioning properly. However, the problem occurs again after a few rides. It happens at: a. turning on the ignition or b. when the Xenon light kicks in after 10 seconds (using a delayed relay).

The weird part here is that when the motor is turned off and turned on again (the next day or so), the problem remains. I need to physically disconnect and reconnect the connector at the backside of the panel (or disconnect the battery).

I did disassemble the dashboard to PCB level and resoldered some pads as they were terribly bad soldered, but the problem still remains.

I have the feeling that the high voltage of the Xenon lights might interfere on the earth/ground of the motor, but thats difficult to measure.
Does anyone know about a diagram of the PCB which is on the internet somewhere?

Hi, as above. I've suffered with the dreaded throttle snatch on my bike for quite some time. We had an obd reader plugged into it recently and noticed the TPS output was not as predictable as it should be. Specifically...at closed throttle it was intermittently glitching to 0.8% , and from small throttle openings it would instantaneously glitch by about 1% periodically without moving the throttle. I've never been able to plot the TPS output against time before, so never noticed a transient change in output.
Do we think this would account for my issue, its very hard to get on the throttle smoothly in low speed situations, its like an on/off switch....
Are the sensors generally reliable...or is it common for them to fail?
This is on a 2012 1050.

Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical issues / Clutch cable length issue
« Last post by Flak on Yesterday at 05:09:17 AM »
I am buying a 2007 1050 ABS model soon and while looking it over I noticed the clutch cable adjustments, both on the engine bracket and the turn barrel on the lever, are maxed out. Current owner said he had the cable replaced when it had rubbed through his old radiator, another common issue these things have from what I'm reading.

I was doing a bit of sleuthing on here and saw a few threads about new cables being manufactured too long and people facing the same issue after replacing them. Does anyone know if this is still an issue before I drop $40 on a new OEM cable?

Same age as you Dustywheels with a 2018 TS. Have ridden through rough stuff and wooded areas. Seems fine if you go carefully however I would say it's not any better than other bikes. I guess that a change of tyres might affect it more positively. The Tiger's pretty tall & heavy for the off road stuff, so I do try and stick to the roads.

thanks for your insight.

I think ppl have misunderstood my comments re gravel. Its not that I intend to go looking for it. More a case of being able get bye if by change I come across it on my travels. Hopefully I'll have do my reseach properly and avoid it.

Plenty of us found our way here because we are no longer able or willing to endure the riding position of sports or street bikes. I can confirm the 1050s are great all day rides and good all rounders. Fine on gravel / bad roads but as JW says the stock suspension is a bit on the budget side, easily fixed though and probably not an issue unless you are a heavier rider. At the end of the day its a road bike so only better than the Street in those conditions because of the longer travel and softer suspension. If you think you need to swap to spoked wheels and/or knobblies for going off road then its probably not the best choice - otherwise you'll be fine. Its too top heavy for proper off road anyway - not an issue for me at 6'4" and mostly on road, but may be a factor to consider if you can ride a Street comfortably  :745:
