I just bought a 2013 Thruxton via a private seller that came with a Predator exhaust already installed by the dealer he bought it from. I have the work order receipt from that dealer that says $660 for parts and 1.5 hrs labor. Yikes. The bike runs great, no problems.

So I called the dealer who he originally bought the bike from and asked if they had remapped the tune. They said yes all bikes are tuned with the exhaust. But the service tech said the map changes over time. I have some knowledge of tuning Subaru WRX's and I've never heard of a map just changing on it's own.

So... am I not understanding their terminology and how do I tell what tune it currently has on it?

(I've searched and read a ton of threads on the topic on this forum but am still a little unclear)

There are probably updated versions of those maps. Not necessarily an improvement. If it runs well and has no glitches..., don't "fix" it! ;)

I had my dealer install my predators and do the tune. From what I've learned about these bikes, most dealers will install the Arrow 2 into 2 tune as it doesn't affect the factory warranty. I would bet you have whatever the latest version was of that tune when they were installed.
