Re: tiger triumph 2008 brand new wont start... help
you have a problem with the starter not turning the engine. so we probily not sending a signal to the starter.
you realy confused me when you started talking about gas and choke?
if the engine doesnt turn over none of this even matters.
these new bikes have many safety features .
you have a sensor for netural and you have a sensor for your kickstand and a sensor for your clutch
and all of these have to be workinf right for your engine to turn over.
so with your kickstand up and the bike in netural and the clutch lever pulled in
it should turn over and start.
when it doesnt you need to check your wiring to the switches one might have come loose.
or could be a bad switch.

Unfortunately you have to go to a Triumph dealer as this is a software problem that needs to be reset via your diagnosic port,the only machine that will do this is a dealer machine or a mac tools ET80 eobd reader which costs about £79 but will read any other engine management problems that you will encounter which seem to come up if you do anything to a triumph,even if you change the battery, If you cant find a mac tools dealer in your area then contact email@example.com
Hope this helps
I would first fill the tank with fresh fuel especialy if the bike has stood for any length of time also determine as to wether or not fuel is actualy reaching the barrrels remove the spark plugs & check if they are wet or dry if they are found to be dry open the drain plugs on the carby float bowls if fuel runs out of the drain it must be asumed that your broblemis carburation & will require the carbies to be removed stripped & cleaned this will involve the removal of all the jets the float & the needle & seat once these have all bean cleaned thoroughly [compressed air is usefull for this part of the operation] &reasembled return them to the machine &
I think that the new 1050 is not as convidence inspiring as the older models, but I found it very stable when on wider forest service type roads. The rims are cast, so much more easily bent. My 1050 felt great as I would stand on the pegs and use my body more. Would slide it out to the side a few times, intentially, and did not feel out of control either.
