Engine Pinned at 7000-8000 RPM

Hey guys, Anyone ever had their engine get stuck revving? I was riding along today and all of a sudden the bike just took off. Thankfully no crash as I was on a quite road and pulled the clutch then kill switch. Coasted to a stop and now anytime I start the bike it revs to 7000-8000 RPM and stays there. Throttle rolls as per normal and will still increase revs but engine will not drop below 7000. Opened up the airbox expecting stuck butterflies, but they are not stuck and operate as expected when the throttle is turned. Throttle cable does not seem to be snagged on anything and is not tight. So any ideas? As we just bought our first house I need to fix this myself.

Bike is a 2008 Tiger 1050 and is coming up on 20,000 miles.

That is really weird. The only time I have heard of such a thing was a stuck throttle cable. Are you running a modified engine map? Perhaps the throttle position sensor is doing something weird.

Nope stock program... And as far as I know if the cable was stuck it wouldn't be allowing the butterflies full range of motion that I am seeing.

Try turning the idle down.

As silly as it sounds, it may have screwed itself in/out somehow.


I had to do that after rejetting my TBS.

Maybe a dumb question...

I know how to adjust idle on my Bonnie but couldn't find a screw or knob on the Tiger to do the same. I figured that the adjustment for the idle was computer controlled... So where is it on the Tiger?

I was told a member named Forchetto would be the guy to ask and might know something about this issue, but his inbox is full... Anyone know how to get a hold of him then?

Well... What can I say, I finally got around to tearing the bike down and all the guesses were wrong... It was a Bumblebee, who decided to die in the most unfortunate location... Which happened to be on the back stop to the throttle cable and was stopping the throttle from going all the way back to the idle position... Thanks for the advice and thankfully things are back in order.
