Triumph twin power Tune

As some of you know, I am the host of a podcast about cafe racer stuff. I also have a 2009 Bonneville SE that I have cafe'd.

I recently did an interview with Pieman himself, Mike from Triumph Twin Power.

Most of us are aware of his impressive knowledge regarding these bikes but I wanted to let all of you know of my experience with him.

After our interview we talked about what I have done to my bike. Specifically we discussed the engine mods and the suspension mods. We also talked about tunes. I have been wanting one of his tunes for a while but hadn't really decided to pull the trigger. I have ridden my bike with the stock tune, a tune I got for Tuneboy from British Customs, a TuneECU free tune, and now one of Mike's tunes.

I could tell there was quite a difference in the free tune and the TTP tune just from looking at the maps in TuneECU. After riding the bike and having much in the way of "canned" tunes to compare to, I can easily say that if you want the best, most developed tune you can get short of spending many many hours on a dyno, get a tune from Triumph Twin Power. They are absolutely worth it. Mike knows what he is doing.

He also suggested I try a lighter weight fork oil in my CBR600F3 forks that I have installed on the Bonnie. I went from 15 to 7 and it is wonderful. It soaks up big bumps so well now it is almost like riding a different bike. Between that and the tune, I almost am riding a different bike.

Pieman if you read this, I owe you one. or two.

-Cheers

Agree. My bike was transformed by one of Mike's tunes.

Same experience here with the tune, most satisfying mod hands down! Might have to try that fork oil weight trick..

Abe I never noticed you were in Spokane. When you get your cbr wheels done I may have to make the trek out there and see them in person.

I didnt know about the podcast. Great interview! One question ...Pieman mentioned the the EFI Thruxton has a slightly higher compression than the other EFI Bonnies. What's the actual difference in the two that achieves the increase in compression on the Thruxton? Is it part of the engine, the exhaust, the EFI map, or a combination?

I used Piemans free FCR settings and it runs like a dream, the best it has ever gone in the two years of having them on. I highly recommend anyone with FCRs to try his tune. He certainly knows these bikes.
