I believe Dealertool or dealer are your only options. Dealertool is pretty cool.
Just out of curiosity, do you have both keys on the same keyring?
No only a dealer or using "dealertool" I prefer dealertool for servicing as I like the layout better. Use tuneecu for mapping only.

And he says:
Despite what the above reads, I was also under the impression you need dealertool to clear the service indicator. I'm almost up to 5k miles though, and I have all the above mentioned, so I'll give it a go when the time comes.
BTW, I don't think you need to start the bike as mentioned in #5 to see codes. You can just turn the ignition on. Of course if you want to see parameters of certain sensors, you'll have to start it. If you don't start it, pull the headlight fuses to keep the battery from draining (this is more important for tuneecu).
So my new tiger has shed 3 of 4 indicators in under a week. Seems like the heat has made them super soft and high speed wind or light pressure makes the rubber crack and tear. My front signals are being held on with gorilla tape right now, and right rear is duct taped to the side of the bike. Anyone else having problems with this? Bike has not been down. Its almost as if I have a turn signal gremlin chewing on them at night!
Other than that. I LOVE THIS BIKE!!
No problem here.
I'd look a little harder for the gremlins. Any very young children, dogs, or cats around? No problem here in the Texas heat.
Or NM heat.
First I've ever heard of this. No issues with mine, over a year old and has been subjected to 98 degree ambient temperatures (probably 115 degrees on the highway) for hundreds of miles at a time
I'm having an interesting issue with my XC. On a hot day, the fabric of the passenger seat appears to start breaking down. It sticky to the point that it holds fingerprints. Armor all helps for a day or so, then it gets sticky again. You can rake your fingernails across the seat and the material scrapes off. Just under 6k and love the bike. Will see if warranty actually works in a few weeks.

Maybe it's the Armor-All that's breaking down the material.
(BTW seats, hand grips and tires are things that I like to be grippy and wouldn't go near with Armor-All - but that's just me.)
It was doing this for a week or so and I called the dealer to bitch, the recommended using Armor All. Ive never had to put anything at all on a bike seat but gave it a try since the service dept recommended it. (the issue I'm having is not a grippy seat, when you can touch a seat on a warm day and your hand comes away with residue, something is wrong,)
Sorry to hear of your issues. Any news ?
doG I bloody hate shit like immobilizers - I don't want one and I don't friggin' need one (and nor do I want to bloody pay for one).
So....is there a way to override/disable the immobilizer
Mine is doing the same. It was a demo and I think they used something to try to clean the shoe scuffs off of it from people getting on and off and whatever they used attacked the vinyl. It was like that when I got it. I didn't do anything to it.
You cannot clear the indicator with TuneECU. The only two ways I know of are having the dealer do it, or using DealerTool.
Very curious about this, since my service reminder has been on for the last 8000 miles :) I started thinking about resetting engine codes and why that would reset the service reminder light using torque, but won't do so using tuneecu. I don't have torque and a bluetooth dongle, but I do have tuneecu and a cable. So I pulled a coil plug to set a code, and then tried clearing it with tuneecu. As I expected it had no effect on the service reminder indicator. To that end I have trouble believing resetting codes with torque will be any different. My understanding of the service reminder is the functionality is stored in the instrument cluster, not in the ECU. The miles to activate can actually be set as desired. SInce torque doesn't seem to access that function I am again doubtful that it can reset the service reminder at all.
I'd love to hear from someone who has done this with torque on a Tiger 800, not any other triumph model. A google search didn't yield anything of interest.
Yeah, gotta be that... A dealer telling you to put what is essentially oil on your seat is a f**king tool anyway.
I remember being able to trust my (Car) dealer's service mgr with my life, now I can't believe a word they say (service managers), it's always bullshit to make some other point or prevent having to do something or pay for something. As though they're really advancing the cause of ANYONE by bullshitting customers. Neither the dealer, the brand, the customer, nor the problem itself is helped by that.
You need to find someone you can trust for advice (which could be a tech at the same dealer even), and then tell the dealer (front of house/sales) you don't need oil on your seat, you need a new one -- and they need to stop wiping the bikes down with rags with brake fluid on them or whatever it is. You might want to check other soft bits for crazing or other signs of chemical distress, too.
Oiling a seat WTF!
Mine was left on by the dealer at 10k kms, when I went in to change the oil etc., until the 20k service. It boils down to having to ride over there, ask them to please pop the seat and plug in, watch him go through whatever facial expressions suit him before I find out what a favour it is... or skipping it as unnecessary since the service interval is not related to faults, just a mileage counter.
I wanted to try out the bluetooth dongle anyway... It's been plugged in 24x7 for over a week with no issues, but then again the bike almost never goes more than 16 hours between rides. Next time the wrench comes on I'll try blipping it in Torque.
I use tuneecu, torque and Dealertool. Dealertool is the only one that will allow you to reset the maintenance counter.
That's what I thought. Where in Florida are you - in case I need my service indicator cleared?
