1st ride with the new tiger

I doubt anybody really cares but I wanted to share with somebody. After months of agonizing wait, I finally get my tiger. A 2013 roadie. I took her out for the first time yesterday for a local ride with my buddy who has a 2012 model. We are rolling ebony and ivory style. Mine is the ivory. Here are a couple of pics from the BRP on a cloudy day. It is all I expected and then some. Fantastic ride.

Mine vibrated after the First service, slackened the chain off a fraction and it stopped. Since then I have checked the tension regularly and it hasn't loosened off since, so it seems to help with chain wear too.

I know a part of the service was to re-torque everything. Could these two events be related? Nothing else has changed.

The dealer is two hours away and I'd prefer (if possible) to take care of this myself.
Same exact thing is happening with mine. Just had 500 mile service on my XC, and noticeable vibration. Starts about 3800 and gets worse the higher you go. Since I don't have a center stand or swing arm spools yet, makes it tough to readjust the chain. Hopefully get that sorted tonight. For a bike that is supposed to be smooth as silk, I feel vibes in all the wrong places.

These bikes are smooth. Something is out of adjustment. I wonder if the dealers reset the TPS, it's supposed to be reset after every ecu update. I wouldn't think the TPS would cause vibrations like that though. I just installed the latest tune 20653 on mine last week and it still runs nice and smooth just like it did before. I DID reset the TPS. I wonder if the throttle bodies are out of sync? My BMW R1200RT would put my pinkie finger to sleep in 10 minutes when the TBs were out of sync. Sync them and it was very smooth again. I could always tell when they needed sync'ing simply by the increased vibes.

This is why I bought both TuneECU and DealerTool so I could check/adjust whatever was needed.

I fall in love with this bike more and more everytime I ride it. Ran with a buddy through some canal roads out by the everglades.. could never do this stuff on a sport bike. Really need some better off-road tires.

You don't need a center stand or swingarm spools. The chain is supposed to be adjusted with the bike on the sidestand. If you adjust it with the rear wheel off the ground, it'll be too tight when the suspension is compressed.

This is true if it's up on the centerstand, but adjusting while up on the spools is OK.

From the perspective of a roadie owner, the chain is tighter when on the center stand. I having 10mm lifting links also, maybe that matters... Just throwing it out there. But yes, still check it on the side stand.

Fuel injected bikes use a "map" to provide the proper amount of fuel based on throttle position and rpm. The computer or ECU checks all the inputs from it's sensors, looks up the value needed and sends the proper amount of fuel to the injectors based on the "map". If you use TuneECU, you can look at your current map and see the values. It basically just looks like a big spreadsheet with values for all rpm ranges from idle to red line. Here's a screenshot from TuneECU, that's your map...



I just installed the latest map for the Tiger last week, 20653. The manufacturers will release updates to address running issues, and there's maps available if you run an aftermarket exhaust etc.
