Hi  No running problems, but it feels like the mapping may not be right, like a very slight surging, and lots of soot at rear of exhaust, and pick up not as sharp as i would expect.

Joe

I think you need to start by running up TuneECU and seeing what the ecu thinks you are running. You'll need an ODB2 to USB cable with the FTDI chipset.

Might be difficult to modify the tune and a professional Dyno tuner might be the best route to take.

Good luck  :031:

Lots of Surrey Tiger riders on here.

How about putting up a photo of your new ride ?

Hello everyone,

 I just thought I'd introduce myself. I live in Chessington in Surrey, England and I've wanted one of these bikes for a long time. But after three years on a V Strom 1000 i finally made the switch. I've had my 2014 Tiger for around three weeks now and I'm loving it. I look forward to picking everyones brains about the bike.

Cheers.

I would do the same compression test, in the same way, with the same equipment, on your speed triple, to prove or disprove the test equipment.

This doesn't make any sense.....to me. With so much less resistance, your starter is struggling to spin the engine. What could possibly cause that, other than a weak starter?

Exactly . . . . Iíve been querying the very same contradiction.
The first few attempts at starting using the bikeís own ignition suffered from crankus interruptus before the starter got going in any meaningful way . . .  2-3 seconds tops. This could have been due to duff pressure sensor readings which will happen with cracked pistons but led me initially to suspect a flat battery.
When I cranked the bike with external wiring the cranking speed still felt laboured but at least it didnít get cut by the ECU. I made a video of that test  - I will post it when I get back after the weekend and you can pass judgement and let me know what you think but as for slow cranking with cracked pistons. . . . . .
I am wondering if blowby into the crankcase effectively increases cranking resistance and thus slows down the starter?
All my thoughts thus far are suppositions and educated guesswork.
All I do know absolutely for sure is that I have extremely low compression on each of three pistons - this is the one known, undebatable fact and will need investigating and thereís only one way to find out the cause.
If my starter motor is faulty too, then I have more than one issue going on. I will worry about that if and when I find out why I have naff all compression 😢
