2015 tiger not running properly 🙁
« on: December 15, 2020, 08:18:04 PM »
Had the tank and everything off to check the valve clearances (all in range after 20k but exhaust  valves mostly right at the tight end).
Put back together, started fine, engine light came on and now struggling to keep it running after start up - once it is idling its okay but hard to get it there.
Cant get tiger tool working (better cable on order) so no  codes read yet. Guessing its a bad reconnection on a sensor but any pointers to narrow it down, please?
Many thanks

Hi.
Did you reconnect the small bore rubber pipe back onto the map sensor?

I haven't quite got to the tank removal point myself but on what I've learnt here over 5yrs 99% of issues after tank removal are the small bore sensor pipe being missed and not reconnected on reassembly as Papa Tom says.  :084:

Thanks both. It was indeed that pipe! Could just get to it with the tips of my fingers. Starts and idles fine now - will give it a test ride later

I really didn't fancy taking the beak, side panels, fog lights and then the tank to investigate further.

Thanks again

Thank you So much for that.

Makes sense of just "why" they kept Matilda after they broke hers when at dealer.
