Hi and welcome to the forum.
Enjoy

Are you sure? In 30+ C temperatures, when idling stationary for more than a few minutes, a 2013 would surely run the fan. Is your fan working correctly? The temperature gauge is not a reliable indicator.

From what you wrote it appears you have spark and air flow renewed. The next simple question would be fuel flow.
Is your fuel tank clear of water/dirt?
Are you certain you have installed the idle control stepper  motor correctly?
Are you sure you have reconnected all the MAP hoses, especially the one attached to the manifold air pressure sensor?

That sucks. :151:

Dealers vary and times and state of the economy so I don't know the current policy of my local Triumph dealer but on both my 2013 Street Triple and 2015 Tiger purchases all accessories purchased at the same time as the bikes were fitted FOC as part of the PDI and also had 10% discount applied.

Hi all!

Happy to be here, just registered after reading around for a couple of weeks. I ride a black Tiger 800 XC from 2012 (yes, with the very well known idle-problems...). I live in Belgium!

General Maintenance and Servicing / Tiger 800 XC idling problems
« Last post by staelens on Today at 07:57 pm »
Hi all,

First of all; happy to be a member here. Learned a lot already before registering. I recently bought a Tiger 800 XC from 2012 with 19000kms on the clock. It has been used for proper offroading in Africa, so the kilometers on it are pretty heavy ones :)

I instantly started having problems with starting/idle; the bike stalled easily when idleing and it sometimes was hard to start it. Did some research and found a TON of info/problems about the stepper motor, so decided to clean it. When I was at it i also replaced the spark plugs and the airfilter.
I cleaned the stepper motor and surroundings with WD40 and then lubed it with a dry lube.

So, after doing so (cleaning the stepper motor, replacing spark plugs and airfilter), reassembled to whole bike and it seemed to idle better; steady around 1100rpm. I started it for a couple of times and it always started fine so I decided to take it for a test drive. I just rode it and now it's even worse than before, only after a couple of 100 meters i can't even keep it in idle. As soon as I pull the clutch the bike stalls, very dangerous actually. Starting and keeping it idleing is just impossible now, it seems to flutter between 600 and 800 rpm, not steady at all and stalls every time. What went wrong here? Any ideas? It rides perfectly fine if i keep the revs up.

Thanks for the info and welcome. I am going into the dealership tomorrow to talk turkey about prices. I am already a little put out to be charged extras fitting at 100 per hour, nice work if you can get it. On the other hand, my sister and my best friend are waiting the results of biopsies for the big C, so what the hell, don't tell triumph but I am going to sign the deal anyway.
We are all so lucky to be able to enjoy what we do

Having owned my 800 (Road) since 2013 I have never heard the Fan come on and never seen the Temperature Gauge rise high enough.
Even on trips to the South of France, 30+ degrees, still no Fan !  :187:
This is in complete contrast to my 2002 Sprint ST 955i which used to come on at the drop of a hat when stuck in traffic.
