well i put the ole girl on last nite and commuted with her this morning and evening .

sound is fantastic in almost obnoxios way , much better than a harley , not near as teeth nashing as four cylinder at full scream


the bike revs to redline quicker , i have only bumped the limiter a couple of times but much easier to do with the zard , iguess all the back pressure from the exhaust was a bunch .

weight : i shaved between 18 and 22 pounds from the bike

performance , you can feel it i used to give the throttle a smart opening in first to loft it and know it lofts of its own mind in first and second

i dont have the correct tune in yet , tuneboy yet to arrive

the tards at the dealer could not even load a tors tune for me without a 2 hour wait while they downloaded from triumph



i hate the back firing/poping , must disable the SAI or plug it as soon as possible

kuhlka , you still got plates ?



all in all , i hate the look of the end can , but its kind of like an ugly girlfriend with a great job whos a nympho and can cook . :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

well , really satisfied with exhaust , i use my certified and calibrated seat of the pantsometer and my happiness smilograph , both of which
are reading very high , towards the top of their range

as a large feller 250 lbs ( how many STONE is that ) the comnbo of the weight loss and the extra hp really amazed me

also , i cant find a reason other than more free flowing , but that sucker is really more responsive to the throttle and seems to rev , and top out much quicker


oh jeez , now i need a little special time after talking about it :-D

Hey ctrhenry, which Triumph tune did they install?

I had 020087 loaded, and the popping and crackling all but disappeared.

they did not install any tune , the tards did not have any current tunes in the computer and it was gonna be a two hour wait for them to get one from triumph, so i just took it home , i will have my tuneboy hopefully in the next few days any way

I've literally just installed Waynes tune for SAI and CAT but the weather is sooo pants here that it's gonna be a while til I try it...

I guess you'll probably go for Waynes original tune as reading other posts you've got the full system...

Bring on spring :( :-D
