2016 Tiger XRX won’t start
« on: April 21, 2019, 10:26:25 PM »
Got my 2016 XRX out today and turned the key, the rev counter went round and back again, pulled in the clutch pressed the starter and nothing. Flipped the kill switch on and off and heard the fuel pump each time and nothing. Turned the key on and off a few times and nothing. Swung the kick stand up and down and nothing. This went on for 5 minutes and then it started. Switched it off and tried to start again and nothing. Minutes later it started and has been fine for the rest of the day. It did this last summer but it has been fine since. I do not have a spare key so that was not close by. Any ideas what the problem might be? Thanks.

 From your description I take it the problem was no action from the starter motor.
If so, suspect starter solenoid and connections including wiring to the solenoid coil, and then high currect wiring connections at the motor and battery.
Simple stuff first. Wirebrush the high current conectors in case there is any corrosion.
Let us know what you find.

Laterally unstable unless moving.

Yes, my first check would be battery connections.

Yup-even a bit of corrosion on the battery terminals can cause you this sort of issue
