Just shows how unreliable the info on forums can be.

I have no idea what causes the stallng problem, but my bike had it in spades for a short period. I'd swtiched from 95 octane fuel to 91, and after a while it began stalling. Several trips to the dealers did nothing to help it - sometimes all was sweet, other times it would stall. Then one day it had a really bad dose of the problem, and I switched back to 95 octane fuel... the problem went away. In the interests of experimentation, after a few thousand kilometers I went back to the (recommended) 91 octane fuel... which several months and >10,000 km later I'm still using with no sign of the problem recurring. As the smart folks say, go figger. If the dealers did anything to fix it like lubing the throttle bodies, they have not said so.

Hi Flipper, I have only used 98 octane in my roadie it has 3500kms now and have never experienced any cut out at idle, I only had a restart problem after stopping for brecky it was like fuel evaperation and needed a quick flick of the throttle when starting, it happen about 3 times but is fine now. There is no dust under my tank the steppr is clean like new,the bike is stock pipe and tune.

Speaking as a dealer in the Midwest, we have sold a few dozen 800's, as well as the other major dealer here, and there have been no issues, or service bulletins, concerning stalling. I also personally ride one, as a commuter, 22 miles each way, no issues. I have the Arrow tune on it. We also rent these, at 19,000 miles, 6 trips to California, no issues.

I figured it out. The forum causes the stepper issue. Must be, because after three years of complaints here, no dealer or triumph has seen or heard of it.

It happens to a LOT of Tigers raceblood. You guys must all ride in prime conditions out that way if no one is having problems. The issue is all over the forums.

It's not difficult to prevent from happening but if the problem catches you off guard miles from home it's no fun. It happened to me while I was off on a few day trip, luckily a few cycles of the key cured it until I got home.

Just cleaned n lubed mine up. Poor ole Tiger was a mess after last years Arizona to Alaska trip and this tear-down-clean-up was pre Jimmy Lewis's training class in Nevada. One of the photos on the gallery shows the little buger in question. POS design IMO.

Just to add to this thread, my Tiger has just come back from a 6,000mile service and guess what. This has now happened twice to my 2013 plate xc.

Just tried to start, fires up ok and stalls. Then give it 20 mins and a bit of poking about and it runs fine

Got to love all the Triumph starting problems, first up Transcender in ignition and now potential stepper motor problem.

Blame your servicing dealer for that.
