General consensus on here for our Tiger's is, chain slack 40 - 45mm.

I'll check that....  Thanks!

Also:  Brake and clutch levers = LSL

The brakes went solid, bypassing the ABS got me full brakes so the rest of the system was OK. I could have tried to fix it but an ebay purchase was only 50. No brainer.

Front or rear?  Still curious.  The series 1 Kawasaki 1400GTR has the same failure on the rear on rare occasions.  The very same ABS unit is in both bikes, tho the ECU is obviously calibrated differently.  I have one and repair the units for other owners.

Update:
The used front wheel is in pretty good order, not as grotty as in the ad photo :062:
I sent the rear to Maidstone Motoliner on Tuesday, got back Thursday, all fixed, thanks @Tiggersteve  :062:
I rode back to visit the pothole today, 45mm deep which is deeper than the local councils 40mm minimum for claims :062:

Shame you didn't record the fault codes, may have helped,
as you stripped a lot of stuff off only option without the codes is to trace back  :006:
hope for some good news tomorrow

  I'm not doubting the pump isn't working right now.  Unless they changed the bits, the fuel connectors and electrical are a PAIN IN THE rear to get off.  The fuel connectors click well, the electrical not so much, 40 years doing electronics still surprised but how things fail. Might just be some really bad timing/luck to happen right after clearing the faults.


Not saying I ever had a issue like this but once the I think it's together, BEFORE any bolt or screw is installed start the bike let warm up and get to temp.   The later part should suggest other issues could crop up.

As stated earlier, I'm positive the code clearing would not cause a no start. A failed tune load can toast the ECU (Make it a vegetable) So it won't allow your program to connect again.
10 deep breaths, forget everything  you have done and start over.   


Stick with us, don't loose patience and you will get this done.

I don't want to sound rude but at the risk of repeating myself. The ABS fault is nothing to do with it not starting!

I only mentioned it as I had to strip half the bike out to get it replaced. And I think that caused the fault lights, only after I cleared the faults would it not start!

Unfortunately for me I have to work for a living so not had a chance to try anything yet. Was hoping for greater minds to provide valid suggestions to try before I went back to basics and pulled to bits again.


I'll let you all know how tomorrow (Sunday uk time) goes.

Yeah, but how?  What did it or not do?  As I say, just curious.  Repairing ABS unit are a bit of a hobby for me.

"To be honest I didn't want to dismantle it again,  mainly as it has a full tank and its a PITA to drain to get to the top of the engine."

FYI the fuel hose connector is self sealing, you'll get a dribble out on disconnection but that is all.

I know. But a full tank is over 25kg, bloody awkward and the whole cockpit has to come off first.
