Rear suspension sunk
on: November 14, 2021, 12:54:46 PM
hello there ! This morning i went for a ride and as i parked my tiger 1200 xcx 19' into the garage when i put it on the side stand and then went off the bike it didnt make the small bounce as it used to do  :087: like lifting some heavy weight of it ( im 98 kg ) it may did a small bounce but then i was confused and ride it again , i think it lowered a little bid cause i can put my feet better or the ground , or i dont think its in my mind  :138: ? anyway is this some semi energetic feature or my rear suspension failed? there is no leak or indicator at dash about any malfunction

Last time I felt my bike lower was when I got a rear puncture ;-)

I replied on you tube too. But I would be surprised if it didn't lower when set to off road mode. Do you get any indication on the dash that it is making the adjustment going from sport or road to off-road? It should take about 10 seconds and tell you it is doing it. When going back to a road mode it only takes 3 seconds or so.

Off road mode does set the damping to a softer setting as it is expecting a rougher road. The idea is that the less the damping the more it will allow suspension travel to absorb the rougher surface. Rain sets damping at a similarly low level, road at a medium level and sport one level off maximum damping. But if you are two up, fully loaded at "max capacity plus" on this bike you will get a more comfortable ride for you and your pillion setting the damping more towards the sporting end to control all of that extra weight.

You can force the recalibration of your TSAS by disconnecting the battery and on next ignition cycle you should get a message up that the TSAS is recalibrating.
