True and true but I would think that at this stage in the game the tech would have given the hose a once over as to condition. A throttle plate cracked open just a bit would make the by-pass circuit on that TB pretty erratic though I would think.

So just got off the phone with the dealer.

Their back and forth with TUSA was essentially exchanging data. The bike going in, the service guy was "not able to get them synched". Then after attempts to adjust them and sending the report back to TUSA the measurements from their perspective was TB 2 off by 20HG. The tech didn't know what HG meant. Sweet.

So their readings were:

480
460
480

Which isn't bad. I have no idea how this compares to TuneECUs readings or others. Triumph refuted the warranty claim because my IPS was adjusted and there was a different map uploaded, even though it's a factory dual high mount map. They also claim that these results are within spec and is better than their own bike they use as a benchmark. I'm not really sure I buy that as the bike physically was vibrating at idle and stalling on a few cases prior to all this. Personally I should have just rode the bike to the dealership sooner regardless of trying to smooth out the idle and stalling problems myself.

I called TUSA today to explain this and the guy was cool. He's going to talk to his supervisor and see what will be done.

Overall I am mixed. I'm not confident the bike is fixed and I'm still convinced that there is an underlying issue even though the service tech said the bike is running better. We'll see.

I'll get the bike back in a couple days once we sort who's gonna pay for the TB work that was done, 300 bucks, and go from there.

If TUSA didn't fix it I'll have to look at the hoses and rings on the screws as well as the positions of the butterflies myself I guess. Depending on how she runs.

Thanks for the update. Those numbers (new ones) are close enough not to worry about it, but I remain curious about the underlying problem, and what they did about it.

That is what the tech told me. I don't know what tool they used. It was part of a "report" they sent. I asked to get a copy so we'll see. tuneECU definitely reports in the 6s. I plan to test the sync when I get the bike back this weekend to see how it compared to my original numbers.

I guess I should update this thread. After getting the bike back from the dealer TuneECU reported 630/600/630. I got a used throttle body assembly from eBay for 70ish bucks and a Haynes manual. Using Champ87's guide here and the thespeedtriple's Av8or's guide the bike is running really well after replacing the assembly. The TBs are synced up. Bike runs well, idles well, feels good. Thank you all for your help.

I'd forgotten how you got into this in the first place!
Congrats on getting it resolved and synched in.

Sorry to bring this up again but I just noticed this thread and DEcosse's comment. To answer you, if you look at the pic uploaded from the guide by MarkD in this thread: http://www.triumphrat.net/speed-trip...de-easy-3.html, you can see that with the dealer software, they show different figures, in the 400 range...
