I had some time after work tonight and rode for awhile. There is a big differance now than before,throttle response is much improved and the fun factor has increased alot too!!

Speedmaster fueling and maping

I had second oil change done acouple weeks back bike has 3745 miles on her now,still getting the surging again at high speed and the stalling out once in awhile,dealer tweaked the throttle bodies again and told me to buy a air box removel kit for it and find a fuel programer and hopefully be done with all this nonsense? Maybe I will??

Get the air box removal kit and get a tune from TTP, you only need to buy a ecu cable for like 8 bucks and get a free copy of Tuneecu, that way you can download the tunes yourself. The TTP tunea are just miles above and beyond the stock triumph tunes in terms of driveability and smooth power delivery. With the Tune ECU software you can adjust your own throttle bodies as well.

Harley's?
Think you replied to to the wrong thread mate. No talk of a Harley around here.
