Tiger died and won't start
« on: March 24, 2019, 11:14:16 AM »
Hi newbie here,  :148:

I have a 2014 Tiger abs, I replaced the battery approx a month ago and went for a ride.
Got the bike out yday to go for a ride, started fine and went for petrol which took 4.5L to full.
Headed back home to pick GF up and halfway back bike just died, (I was moving at the time so not stalled( and good job I was'nt on a bendy road)) would'nt even crank over.
Pushed the bike back home, took battery off for charging as was a little low and has been on optimiser all night, now a full battery but not showing any fuel so still not cranking.
I know the Tiger won't start if no fuel is showing after removing battery but the battery has been on over night, could this possibly be a fuel sensor issue?.
Thanks in advance.

If you're sure the battery is good, have a look at the solenoid and 30A fuse - under the battery

Never heard of not starting because showing no fuel - showing no fuel is common after having the tank off, until you've ridden a way.

As RTWO says, look at the 30A fuse - but do you have anything showing on the dash? Check you battery connections too - as the last thing you changed, that's where I'd start.

Thanks for sugestions.
I've always had the issue of showing no fuel when batterys been off, I saw a thread a while ago  regarding showing no fuel and bike would'nt start until after vigorous side to side motion to show fuel then it started.

Anyways, checked 30A fuse on solenoid and thats fine.
Everything comes on clocks when ignition is turned, but does'nt show any fuel and just noticed neutral light or the gear selector number does'nt come up.

If you've got Tigertool, plug it in and check for codes, clear any and see if that makes any difference. Always worth checking all the fuses just in case any are blown.

If not all lights etc are showing check the engine kill switch.

I have a generic bluetooth obd2 which connected today, no faults showing. Won't connect today for some reason.

Just stripped kill switch and that appears fine.

The new battery is exactly same as what was on in it a Yuasa ytx16-bs.

On stripping down the kill switch the alarm kept arming itself even with the ignition on, could the alarm/immobiliser be causing these issues?

Mebbe check out the ignition switch & its connections.

Good luck with it.
