Throttle bodies
« on: December 14, 2017, 04:34:14 PM »

Waiting for Dealer tool to get me set up with the ECU , so in the mean time I'm going to balance the throttles with my gauges. I recon I will have to remove the bodies before I can get at the Center takeoff stub. Then refit them with the tubes attached and use the gauges then ?

Can you use gauges to balance them 🤔

According to the Haynes manual you can. There is a procedure described in the manual.
I've always used the Dealertool.

That's odd, according to the Triumph service manual...
The throttles cannot be balanced using equipment to measure vacuum in each throttle. Instead, the Triumph diagnostic software must be used.

Maybe Triumph don't want you going in there with vacuum gauges and only want their dealers to get paid for doing the work? I'd be tempted to just wait for Dealertool to get back to you. They're usually pretty quick.
In the meantime you could use your DealerTool interface with TigerTool.  :007: :164:

Am guessing Haynes is wrong on this.

Dealertool, or better yet Tigertool

I've not tried it myself, as I said I use Dealertool, but there is plenty of info on the web about balancing FI throttle bodies with standard gauges.
Why would the Tiger 800 be any different?
Here's just one I found. https://www.louis-moto.co.uk/rund-ums-motorrad/schraubertipps/einspritzanlage

agreed, most injection system motors with separate bodys can be balanced with vacs, not found one yet that cant be, but,,I cant say on the tiger as I have both methods, but figured dealer tool with be the most accurate, cos its electronic...
