So, you say, you never said this:

My statements do Not contradict each other. I am simply stating that how the bike is being ridden may indeed be what is causing/exposing the issue that needs to be addressed. Are you two that inept that you can’t understand that?


F.I. Mapping with all its sensors can be a bit finicky. In a perfect world it would work flawlessly for all riders. It rarely works out that was however. How a bike is riiden can and does expose flaws. Triumph will get it sorted out.... And they are not the first moto co. to run into this problem.

I know that at least one Triumph employee reads the UK Tiger 800 forum. Triumph DO read ride reports and are aware of the stalling issues. No news beyond that. A solution will be found I'm sure.

Regards F.I. systems: You do understand that the computer (ECM) in an F.I. system "learns" your riding style and adjusts accordingly? This is not new. Car computers have had this ability for years.

When a vehicle is brand new the computer is learning and storing data and making constant changes as a brand new motor breaks in. Running the bike through its full RPM range is a common method to allow the computer to learn and adjust more quickly and more accurately.

It would only take ONE element being faulty or out of spec to throw all this off. I expect that is what is going on with stalling Tigers. Obviously the fault is not throwing a code ... if it was it would have been solved by now.

But riding a new bike with some aggressiveness can sometimes help settle it down and allow stall free smooth running as the computer "learns".

I helped break in 30 brand new SV650 Suzuki press fleet bikes. Zero miles. This is the technique Suzuki techs insisted upon. We put only 25 miles on each bike. DONE.
The next nut behind the wheel were the magazine guys .... who hit redline before getting out of the parking lot ... and stayed there the entire day. ALL bikes ran perfectly. Not one glitch.

Excuse me, but you said:

Are you too "inept" to understand that you are saying to a rider "you are doing something that is wrong by riding the bike how you ride it"?

If I ride a bike and I keep the engine alive at any point. Then the EFI has a bug when the bike stalls later. And I don't give a shit whether anybody considers any type of riding as "not as the bike should be ridden" - the bike has to deal with it.

What people here are trying (certainly you) is to declare a clear bug in the bikes fuel injection as rider error ("not riding as it should be ridden"). And it doesn't matter whether any kind of riding exposes this bug more or not - a bug stays a bug.

And there is no way "how a bike should be ridden". If a manufacturer sells a bike that can be started, they need to expect all kinds of riders with all kinds of riding habits.

If I write a software that looses data and than say "you are not using the software as it should be used" - that would be equal bullshit. If I bring something on the market that can't deal with normal users, I need to fix it fast or not provide such software. And people like you should not find excuses that aren't excuses. A bug is a bug. No matter how it is exposed. And too many people see this to point to a specific behavior. It's statistically highly unlikely that all those people fall into a specific riding or break-in pattern.

That's exactly why I broke my bike in the way I did. I ride HARD all the time. So that's how I broke it in. No stalling so far at almost 3000 miles. The real test starts a week from today. I leave on about a 3500-4000 mile trip with dad and brother. Can't wait!!!!!

No that is not what I or anyone else is saying. It is what YOU and your inability to comprehend is reading into our posts. We are all in agreement that something is wrong. We are only trying to put forth things that might trigger what it is that needs to be addressed. (in hopes that it will speed up a fix from Triumph)

I am in complete agreement with this part.

you need to read what you posted again

There is no other way to take what you posted , other then it's the rider's fault. You stired this whole thing up with your statement, as if you had solved the problem. Maybe you should have stated it a little differantly.

No contradictions, uh?
You mentioned you would eventually be selling these bikes, as a job, right?

I do appreciate those with problems posting them up. It's nice to get opinions from those without conflicting interests. Regardless of the reported problems, I ordered an 800 today. If Triumph can't sort out the stalling issue within the warranty, I'll sell. Wish me luck ya FF's. Except for you Dakez! Just kiddin. I'm getting lots of amusement out of the virtual pissing contest. It's almost like real piss!

The thread was dragging a bit I thought I would breath a little life into it.

I took my Tiger in for the stalling problem, when I got it back he said I could it ride it but it's not fixed. Dealer said he adjusted something but it didn't seem to run any better on the ride home. He told me Triumph is still working on it. They were thinking it was the stepper motor but now are leaning toward a software issue/fix, that throwing parts at it hasn't helped much.

Interesting.

Triumph threw about $1500 worth of parts at my 2012 XC in the form of a new throttle body assembly (which contains the Stepper Motor and Throttle Position Sensor. Both of which were determined by Triumph to be defective). The replacement solved the high idle issue I was having but now the bike stalls. Intermittently, when coming to a stop. Not a "riding style" issue that some of us are proposing. Just dies when the bike comes to a stop. Every rider of any motorcycle will have to come to a stop at several times during their given ride...

During the 25 days that my XC sat at the dealership for repairs I was communicating with Triumph's Customer Relations Manager, Peter Carleo (pm me for his contact info if you want it). He was quite interested in my experience as a customer while the bike was in the shop. He asked me to let him know how the bike runs when I get it out, told me Triumph will throw a few $$ at me for my troubles in the form of accessories. So I let him know that now my bike has a stalling problem, like so many others, and 2 weeks later I have not heard a peep from him. No accessories. No proper running motorcycle that I paid a pant load of money for.

I really question how much Triumph is working on the problem. They're doing shit for me right now.

Triumph is going to get this sorted, no doubt. I bought a Yamaha Super Tenere, though the Tiger 800 XC was on my "short list".

I believe the Tiger is the best, mid-sized, ADV bike out there.

I suspect the folks in Hinckley are "front and center", on your FI (low speed), issues.

We, new, Super Tenere owners, haven't fully sorted our (USA) bikes out either, but we know that the people at the factory are going to make the bike right, or suffer the negative consequences of our user opinions in the Internet driven marketplace.

Triumph has a real "winner", here. The three cylinder engine design is captivating and very addicting....

The above is just my opinion. I didn't mean to jump in when I don't own one of these (IMO), great bikes.

I've been following this thread from the "get go", if that means anything..
