Triumph service question
« on: January 08, 2020, 08:15:14 am »
My Triumph is due a service soon. I'm not really one for dealer services and prefer to service my own bike with the assistance of Halfdaft.

My question is:
Is there a way to reset the computer if I do my own service on the bike?

Alternatively who do you guys trust with your bike in the JHB area. I'm a rather pedantic chap, some would say "difficult" when it comes to my bikes. I like them running 100% and I have an eye and ear for things out of sync.

Appreciate any feedback.

I had the same dilemma with my explorer. Unfortunately to reset engine light and fault codes requires the Triumph Computer or a "Dealer tool" (Google Triumph Dealer tool)

Maybe do the oils etc yourself and ask Triumph in JHB or possibly one of the previous agents who may still have a computer for a price just to run diagnostics and reset service light? The new generation explorer needs a PC to do alot of stuff even synching the throttle bodies and bleeding the ABS system.........not sure if the 800 requires the same

Ciao

Check this link on the Tiger forum, explains how to reset the service counter and a few other things you are able to do.

Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle.

With the correct OBD tool (https://www.obdlink.com/lxbt/) and the full android version of TuneECU you can reset the service light.

I've recently done my tigers 20k km service, and ended up buying 2of the "known to work " cables from the UK, after struggling with a few local ones. With the right cable the Tiger tool works like a charm.
That said the throttle body can be balanced with a vaccum gauge, if you remove the MAP sensor pipes.
The abs bleeding isn't too bad, after not seeing any change in the fluid I'd be happy to do a change, then go ride, activating the abs a couple of times and then change it again.

Finally, the service manual is hard to find. But if you use Mozilla, and then find a tritun plug in, you can download an original one for offline use with the 1 hour subscription.

Check on Haynes Manuals website - Triumph 800 all models available in printed form (not the greatest quality) for GBP 16.99 -  downloadable version for GBP 14.99.  https://haynes.com/en-gb/triumph/tiger-800/2010-2019
Previously owned: Yamaha XT250, Honda XL500R, Yamaha XT600 Tenere, then moved over to the Dark Side with a great classic: Honda CB750F - all sold unfortunately.  Currently have a '14 Triumph 800XC and restoring a 2010 Tenere 660Z.
