12 minute ECU reset
« on: April 14, 2019, 10:28:20 AM »
Good morning,
Yesterday I performed the 12 min ECU reset following an end can change.
After a ride this morning here are my thoughts:
Idle is much more consistent, less hunting.
Throttle seems more responsive.
Seems to accelerate cleaner.
Exhaust note possibly a little fruitier.

All in all the bike is feeling sorted. Im not if the final point above is true, or the placebo effect!

Anyway, heres a pic from the ride :)

Nice looking Tiger! - Does this reset work on all models/years? (I have a very early 2010 XC model)

Cheers

Reset works on all 800 Tigers EXCEPT if you have O2 sensor removed and disabled.
Stupid is as stupid does.

Is it something that you would recommend to be done periodically or only in the event of an apparent fault?
(My bile is old but very low mileage and am wondering if this needs to be done even if all seems OK)

According to my service manual it suggests doing it after a modification (eg exhaust) or after a service.

Engine must be cold.
Start up, not using the throttle.
Leave idling until the fan kicks in (dont touch throttle)
Idle for a further 12 minutes
Turn off.
