like to mention when you guys talk about changing the air filter you should always take off the whole bottom of the airbox as well, at the rear underneath that box is an air breather pipe from the crankcase I can guarantee you there will be a white creamy sludge in the tube if this is not cleared it will lead to crankcase pressure and the engine will stop running.

When I watched muddy sumps video, he made a point of cleaning that tube, so I did the same. Good tip !

 :187: OK, on the way home, I had the exact same symptoms as before. I've got a new battery and new plugs. So it can't be those. I've had a look on the forum for anything else even nearly like my symptoms, and saw mention of checking the coils. So that's what I have done and my results in ohms are;

Across the terminals 01.9 for each.
Terminal to post (inside) 11.54.



Do these figures look odd to anyone?
Any help appreciated, else I'll have to take the bike to Triumph.

I'm a bit late to throw in a possible cause here but I've seen similar issues with a partially blocked fuel filter.
Not easy to get to and test on the Tiger

Well, I did think of that awhile back, but had no issues for over a week. Just seems a bit odd....

Service manual pinpoint test indicates 0.8Ω - 1.2Ω so depending on the accuracy of your meter (and lead resistance) they might just about seem right.

Apologies,  I should add that the resistance on just the meter is 01.5 ohms..... :110:

Double check your plugs are still tightened to the correct Torque settings.
