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:
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.
Whomever said all good things in moderation certainly never rode a bad ass Bonneville
