Fuel pump is firing up upon ignition, noticeably audible.  I bypassed the clutch switch by fusing the two wires as a quick eliminator.  Put a new battery in.  Ignition kill switch seems to be working as it shuts down the lights on the dash upon pressing.  I noticed as I was going through things again tonight after installing the new battery that I"ve got evidence of a small fuel leak in the line from the tank to the fuel rails at each end, particularly noticeable on the tank side. My next step will be to go for a fuel filter/fuel pump and the fuel line to the rails.  I've got 40k on the bike so I believe now is a prime time to do the maintenance whilst I've got it all opened up. 

Thank you for your input, any additional advice is most appreciated.  Spring in the Blue Ridge Mtn's is prime riding season and this is killing me.  I suppose that being under a CV-19 "stay at home" order is a good time to have the problems though.

And check the clutch switch and kill switch, did you wash the bike before you put it away? sometimes water sitting somewhere can upset connections, can you hear the fuel pump priming?

I stopped leaving a battery on a tender years ago they can be an illusion,put on charge and leave the battery a week and see what you have that’s the reality of the battery condition.

No mention of how old the battery is,I’d try another before you do anything.

Greetings from home here in the Blue Ridge Mtn's. of North Carolina.

About 8 weeks ago I changed the oil, cleaned and adjusted the chain, filled the tank with ethanol free premium unleaded (93 octane) and anxiously awaited for the first warmish day to ride.  Once done with the oil change I fired the 06 Tiger up and she, like she always has over the past 20,000 miles, turned right over without a hitch.  I keep her on a battery tender always.  The battery shows over 12.5 volts when tested.

Last Saturday I checked the bike over, geared up, got on the bike and turned the key and while the engine turns over fine I don't seem to be getting spark so it just continues to crank without firing up.  I've checked the kickstand switch (after removing the tank) and it reads .5 ohm resistance with the multimeter.  The multimeter reads .5 ohm when touching the leads to one another, so net zero I presume with regard to the kickstand switch connector up under the tank.    All three coils read .9-1.0 ohm at the plug in connectors with the multimeter (when removed and tested).   I get a OL reading when testing the plug in connectors and the spark plug spring.   After repeated attempts I began to smell fuel so I'm guessing that the throttle bodies are getting fuel.

Any input is much appreciated.

Thank you, mates.

So partially true. Or sort of.
What about lines and connections etc. Will the ethanol eat them?

Aside from the vinyl on the tank bubbling and the fuel system gumming up if left for a couple of months, that's correct. As far as running the bike goes E10 shouldn't affect them, although I use super unleaded anyway.

MCN are reporting that Triumph have stated that all bikes made after 1990 are safe for use with the forthcoming E10 petrol. Is that true?

Still here, riding a Tiger Sport these days but I still have a Girly in the garage awaiting some work if I ever get around to it!

I am still here!! Almost 13 years now, anyone else still "out there".  Like crickets in here nowadays. :-( It has been 14 years since the last of the Giryl's rolled off the line.
