Bike dying when you are slowing down to stop
on: June 25, 2022, 04:37:41 PM
Is anyone having a problem with the bike dying when you are slowing down to stop and still rolling? Mine does it and a friend test rode one that did it.   It is sporadic and I’m not seeing a pattern, partly because I don’t realize it has died right away.

Go read my thread about all of my issues. I had this exact same issue last week. Thought it was related to my other issues but maybe not.

I've had this happen 3 or 4 times. I think it's something to do with the combination of throttle opening and clutch position. Once or twice it has happened when I've been slowing into a junction and then beginning to accelerate. When this happens, it's obviously not good when the engine stalls.

I've been trying to determine the pattern in order to repeat it (or avoid it), but so far, I can't figure it out.

For me it happened 5 times in about 10 miles. Seemed to happen when at higher RPMs and pulling in the clutch to come to a stop. Never did it the first 1200 miles then happened a bunch when taking the bike in for another issue

This thread has been split from the "Why 2 standards on Fuel" topic as the subject matter is completely different.

Reminder to OP - please post in the correct thread or start a New Topic if one does not exist. Please don't take threads off-topic.

I posted there because there was already a discussion in that thread about the bike being hard to start and I saw possible relationship between being hard to start and dying. 

Also, in the first post of that thread the OP said “ Does this mean the engine runs fine on 91RON”.  A bike dying is a bike not running fine.  That’s why I thought the question was appropriate.

All I can say is the stalling is obviously not normal, I'm at 2500 kms, in my experience, I have yet to stall this bike as described here or even just starting out, perhaps once when I was using the joy stick and dropped the clutch with no throttle & not paying attention,.
That rev boost at start seems to work pretty well for me,,.

You guys need to get to the dealer for a solution,,.

On a german Tiger 1200 Gen4 forum there are also couple of owners who have stalling, engine brake and on/off throttle response problems  :084:

Yes - this happened to me on one tiger sporadically. No errors, simply engine cutting off and I could only notice it because throttle response would be gone. I could always restart the engine by pulling the clutch in and hitting the started. This always happened when I used engine compression. Misaligned pistons / misfiring was the cause.

I’m also getting some responses on another forum saying it has happened to them.  That’s a good think because it will get Triumph to fix it.  I have no doubt to will be an ECU flash fix.

Thanks
