Finally--mods complete, tune installed!
After a year of going halfway, I added the final pieces to the puzzle on the Easter weekend: a pair of the new BC Sleeper Pro pipes and a new tune from TTP (Tune 3). Incredibly, the tune installed flawlessly, despite the fact I'm a luddite and was terrified of screwing up.
The bike runs beautifully (if a little louder than I expected). Big thanks to all who went before me and provided their advice and experience on these pages.
The least I can do is supply a tip of my own: The guys at British Customs didn't know I had a centre stand, so didn't send the right bracket and bumper to prevent the stand from hitting the left side pipe. While waiting for it to arrive, I've wrapped an asbestos rope gasket (used for fireplaces, wood stoves) around the part of the stand that makes contact. It's supposed to withstand temperatures of 500F. It works beautifully. Cushions the stand and doesn't burn or singe at all.
AI, O2 and air box baffle removed, BC Sleeper Pros, Breathe and tune from TTP, polished cups from D9, Triumph bar-end mirrors, centre stand, other goodies.
