Thanks Mike, hopefully mine'll be ok for a year or 3 yet, saved the link in case.

What milage was that ^^^ at Mike, mine is only at 31k now, thanks to others.

I just found the old post, from December 2021 - mileage was 63k at the time.  The clue was the crunching and clicking noise when you pull the clutch in and out without the motor running.  Plus some free play if you grasp the top of it and pull it about.  Original thread is here:   https://www.tiger1050.com/index.php/topic,42497.0.html

Needs must, gotta have a bike, how else will I annoy decrepit old Peugeot drivers whilst maintaining my mental health.

Wish I had a garage mind. That wasn't fun to do outdoors

Yeah, I got it sussed this morning. Thanks all for the help so far!

Map sensor unplugged and the throttle bodies literally fell out of the rubbers. Had to warm the rubbers up with a hairdryer to get the throttle bodies to seat.

Bit of fettling later and I'm 50 miles into the maiden voyage on the new engine. Nothing has exploded, popped, leaked, fallen off or over heated yet.

This is the route I blew up the last engine on thinking of it.

Next up is to tear the old engine apart and find out what went wrong.

The clutch has always worked fine and there has never been an issue except that I have a small amount of lateral play in the actuator rod where it passes through the crankcase cover and the occasional weep of oil here as well.
The early 1050s were well known for wearing at this point and if left, not only does the actuator rod wear but the needle bearings in the case will do likewise and I believe I am correct in suggesting that at least one if not both of these bearings are nigh on impossible to replace and come pre-installed into the covers. The clutch cover is exposed at the moment and so if it needs to come off to replace the actuator, now is the time to do it. I haven't yet checked the manual and I suspect the actuator can be drawn out of the crankcase with the cover in situ . . . I guess I will find out soon enough - either way, it spells another hundred quid in parts and so this thing had better run properly when I've finished . . . . .

The later ones wear as well - I had to replace the clutch actuator on my 2013 Sport a couple of years ago for excessive play.  It was also making a noticable clicking/crunching sound when the clutch lever was pulled, though of course that was only audible with the engine stopped.  With the actuator removed it was badly worn - impressions from the needle rollers in the shaft, and a deep scoring where it was was grinding against the side of the hole through the clutch cover.  No wonder it was weeping oil...  There's a photo on here somewhere, just search through my posts to find it.

I did remove the clutch cover to fit, but you don't have to remove the starter gears etc as per the manual.  You just need a suitably designed offset/swan-neck spanner to get to the partially obstructed bolt head - the Halfords Advanced one works fine (and is probably cheaper to just buy that than replacing the extra gaskets if you do it by the book!)

All three go to the MAP sensor. Don't forget the rubber bung on the second connection on number 2 throttle body.

Great job, I wondered how you would hold the engine to torque the head.
