I have been running Uncle Remus for over a year now...I wanted a low mount can so I could mount a full size pannier on the right side. The Remus (without baffle) worked well with the TOR tune. I recently installed the baffle so I could load a custom tune from a member on that other forum. His setup is Remus with baffle, snorkel removed from air box, stock air filter, CAT removed, no SAI. All I had to do was remove the CAT and install the baffle in Uncle Remus to be very near his setup. Since his tune had the SAI turned off, I just turned it on prior to downloading the tune to my ECU. His tune transformed my bike...I have to be very careful opening the throttle in lower gears...I even had it lift the front wheel in 4th gear at 65 mph recently. Bike runs smooth like it should have from the factory. It is smoother than my carbed Bonnie.
TuneECU is free....all one needs is a cable to connect a PC to the bike ECU. There are links where to purchase the cable ($15 to $20) on the TuneECU site or get one from Amazon.com. There are good instructions on setting the cable and PC up and a link to all the Triumph tunes on the TuneECU site.
There is a separate sub-forum on that other site dedicated to this type activity. Two members have had their Tigers tuned by Wayne at PowerTripp in Alabama, and they have made their tunes available to anyone who wants to try them.
Here is a pic of my bike with the full size pannier on the right side. A member of that other forum in England makes a right hand bracket for the full size pannier, and it is a simple modification...except for finding a full size pannier (Tiger left side or either side of the Sprint ST panniers work).
