Traction Control
« on: April 14, 2013, 07:40:18 PM »
Hello,

a couple of weeks ago I had a test ride with a Trophy that arrived at the dealer early december. At this bike it was possible to set the traction control in steps.
This weekend I got mine, and there is only the on/off-button.
Is it possible that the first lot has a different motor management?

Today I made my first 400 km and everything is working fine. Was a great pleasure and the fuel consumption is half a liter less than on my Tiger 955i on the same route. Very impressive.....

Cheers,

Tiger-Willi

It is either on or off on mine. Are you sure it was the traction control you could alter in steps?
Might as well as wish we had.

Might it be the Cruise Control you are referring to. :087:

I think you are right TM. I think the dealer was talking about the cruise control.

That is interesting Miss as I have what we call 'sleeping Policemen' in my carpark at work. They are steep and if I ride to fast over them the traction control briefly comes on.

Hi,

the dealer showed it to me when he explained the menue. As the motorcycle wasn┤t running it couldn┤t have been the light adjustment that is only running when the motor is started.
Does anybody know if the motor management of the Tiger Explorer has an adjustable TC? May be that there was the motor management of this model mounted. It was the model with the starter package...

Cheers,

Tiger-Willi

Sure it wasn't the TES system that he was showing to you??
My SE the TC is on or off. I cant see how TC could work in stages  :087:
