    Newbie to Tune ECU -help finding the correct tune!

    Hey all,
    I'm a new member to this fantastic forum and have a few questions in regards to Tune ECU. I recently got a 2008 Truimph Speed Triple 1050 and has a shorty/low Comp Werks Slip on Exhaust and a few cosmetic additions... front headlight conversion kit, and the past owner mentioned it hasnt been tuned in the bikes lifespan. I've been educating myself on how the process works and the main issue i have ran into in my lack of expertise to the matter, is finding the correct custom mapping for my bike to use in Tune ECU....

    I stumbled across the TOD custom map that has gotten rave reviews and i think i actually was moist in my undercarriage after reading about it...Not sure if it is capable for my setup. I went ahead and ordered a lonetec proper cable from the UK thats in the mail.. Any information or direction on locating a tune for my bike would be appreciated !!
    Cheers,
    Chef

    Nice jackstand! I run the TOD on my 2005 with a compwerks and a BMC filter with the SAI blocked off. It runs well when it isn't eating stators!

    Thanks! @norcalAFs3 ...... how did you like the TOD tune Versus the Previous? Was it stock before you made the TOD Flash?

    Im wondering if it makes a difference if you need to be specific with the exhaust (slip on versus full)? I found a possible fit from tune ecu, but need some insight from someone with some more knowledge....
    Woud this work ?

    If the VIN falls in the range, you should be fine. I went from a stock setup to the compwerks with TOD, then eventually added the BMC filter, then years later did the SAI block off after I started thinking my neighborhood would appreciate less backfire/gunshot noise! It ran fine, though a little rich before the filter and SAI mod. I tried the arrow low tune and had a very noticeable stumble around 3-4k rpm, so I went back to the TOD and haven't looked back. You can change the tune in the tuneECU program to allow for the SAI being active or not, and if your bike has the O2 sensor in the exhaust (mine doesn't).

    DOOOOPE. Thanks for the knowledge! just checked out my title and looks like i fall smack dab in between the VIN range. BMC- is that a air intake mod? talked with the previous owner of my truimph and he mentioned the smog block off plate has been removed-is that the same as an SAI Block? I've never owned a euro bike prior , strictly Japanese(FZ6, FZ07, Proz125 Kawasaki) ... and had the luxury of living down the road from a bike shop mechanic, and he refuses to work on Truimphs lol. I look at it as a blessing that i can learn to do it myself since literally no one else around will ..

    BMC is just a reusable air filter that flows a little more than stock. The SAI is a secondary air injection, you should be able to see on the top of each cylinder viewed from the side if there are hoses routed from the airbox to the cylinder head. The block off plates will look a little out of place, I'll see if I can snap a picture in the morning or you can run a search for SAI block off plates and see if someone already posted some finished photos, I think there is a detailed how to either here or the other triumph forum.

    Just use an old marble or Anal bead.

    *caveat: This assumes you have not routed the SAI to the crankcase breather. Using the SAI to create a partial vacuum in the crankcase can add a little horsepower.

    Hey y’all. So I uploaded the Tune of death this afternoon on my 08 speedie . Couple of issues I came across wanted to pick someone’s brain about it . So after the download finished , I disconnected from tune ECU , turned the ignition off and did the reset . I have an o2 sensor on my pipe and I forgot to disable it and realized it 3/4 the way thru the download .. thought I saw somewhere it wouldn’t matter too much if it’s disabled or not ... but it def does matter . I got an error code P1690 malfunction “can bus error “ ..

    I also ran it for the 12 mins as per the instructions off these threads and it said the TPS light should turn green for the idle to be read on the bikes ECU ... didn’t see it after 15 mins ...

    I took a test ride and the bike is absolutely Tits McGee . It’s smooth as butter AND HAS HUGE BALLS . Much more responsive and feels way more powerful..

    Anyways , I still have that error code p1960, and wondering if I can just re install the TOD CORRECTLY this time with the SAI Diasbled and the O2 enabled? I had them flip flopped like a real dingus .

    Some things you can change without reloading the tune, not sure if that's one of them. But you can definitely change the settings in the tune and reload it.

    The 12 minutes tune is ran from cold, then once the bike reaches 5 temp bars the 12 minutes begins, it's usually about a 20 minute total deal for my bike
