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..

I find it strange that Triumph would order the throttle body replaced if they suspected problems with the throttle position sensor and/or stepper motor. Both items are easily replaced on their own, no doubt at much less expense than replacing the entire throttle body assembly.

So it makes me wonder what they know (or what they suspect anyway) that we don't.

Where the eff are the pictures of people mucking around on their bikes? I've only seen a few photos of people putting accessories on the Tigers.

I think from memory it suggests in the service manual to take the TB's off to replace the TPS and stepper assy.
If that is the case then it would make sence from a labor point of view to replace the whole shabang. No setting up, no mucking around. Whip the old one off and put the new one on

And that's probably when they realised that it was the wrong approach.

I'll just add, as I've posted before, that mine doesn't stall except for when I phuq up. And I ran in the motor (almost) according to the book. "Almost" because I stepped up the rpms about 20% earlier then book.

I don't reckon run in has much to do with the stalling as mine doesn't stall (thought it was for a bit but I reckon it was something to do with my poor clutch/throttle manipulation that day) and I run it in a little different to what the book says
