You need to install the latest version of tuneecu, the newest maps won't work on the old version.

Thanks, that was the issue. I had previously downloaded the latest version a couple of weeks ago but never removed the older version.

I move the XM between 3 bikes. On the Goldwing I have a dedicated antenna mounted below the windshield, on the Tiger and the FatBob, I use the magnetic antenna and just stick it on the tank-no problem with a signal and doesn't move around at all

Yeah. I was at Precision Triumph in RI the other day. They had one in stock for my XC. They had more if anyone needs one!

Testing the limits of the fuel gage.

Testing the limits of the fuel gage.

So, I swapped the new tube into the rear tire and set off for the gas station. Nearest is 8 miles from my house. Had two bars on the gauge, so figured all was well. Made it 7 miles on the gravel and stopped at the highway to turn to make the last mile. Bike ran rough, trying to idle at 300 rpm and died when I pulled in the clutch at the up to the stop sign. Tried four times to start it. It would bump to 300 rpm and then die again. I was starting to think stepper motor. Finally on the fifth try it started but I had to keep the revs up manually. Surprisingly it ran fine up the highway to the gas station. No stumbles at all under power but if I pulled in the clutch it would stumble and die. Let out the clutch in 6th while going down the highway and it fired up and ran smooth. Did this a couple of times just to see what would happen. It always died. Filled up and it took 4 gallons to the jail bars. Never stuttered or stumbled after getting gas and I did another 40 miles. In fact, after getting gas it started and idled perfectly. Manual says it has a 5 gallon tank but I don't know how full "full" is above the jail bars or how much was left with two bars on the fuel gauge. Low fuel light was on for a total of 10 miles but on my Daytona that usually meant one gallon. Bike ran perfectly under throttle but died at idle every time.

Thoughts?

Oh, and I threw away the little pieces of plastic that I was using to protect the rim from scratches. I figured, it's going to get scratched, I'm going to be switching between knobbies and roadies as needed and if I have a flat in the wild I won't have my little pieces of plastic. So, first scratch is there. I no longer have to worry about perfect rims. It's very liberating.

I run mine to one bar all the time. Filled up yesterday @ 199.5 miles, 4.7 gallons. Computer said --- miles to empty. I always fill up to just above the bars. I have the Arrow can with the latest tune, mileage improved a little with this tune.

You may have some water in your tank. My truck had similar issues. I had to drain my fuel tank and start over. It would run fine, until I got it too low. The culprit was a local filling station with water in their tanks.

+1. To have trouble with two bars left seems odd and to only be able to put 4 gallons into it seems to indicate it was not a low fuel problem.

Hi All!

I haven't checked in with this thread in quite sometime, but I'm due. I've got 12,000 miles on Hobbes now and everything is fantastic! I've been some incredible places and this bike continues to amaze me.

Checking in to let you all know I just finished the R&D with Jay Jobes from Sasquatch Suspensions in Boise, ID.

When I first showed up to his shop, we checked the sags. Zero fuel and no safety gear they were totally blown out. And I'm only 5'10" and 180 lbs. We did custom springs in the front and rear as well as his custom two stage valving. The bike is now set up so that with full fuel, full safety gear, and zero preload on the rear, things are a bit on the stiff side. Once I put my camping gear or panniers on the back, it's right where it should be.

I went out an rode rode some rough stuff on Saturday. Holy crap! I thought it was good before! Now the front end is much more planted in all aspects. Especially washboard in corners. It doesn't drift and just tracks! The rear never bottomed out all day. That was a problem for me before. And once again, I'm only 180 lbs. I could feel more power making it to the dirt and I was loving it!

If you feel the suspension is lacking on the Tiger 800/800XC, you need to give Jay a call. This man has worked wonders on this bike!

Contact him HERE!

Here's Jay saying hello to all YFFs.

It gets sucked up by the vacuum behind the screen and comes in each side of the headlamps. The bike needs some deflectors in that region similar to what you can see on a BMW (bloody hell, I don't believe I'm saying this!) R1200GS/Adv.
