Got mine today as well. Now all I have to do is sneak the bike in the living room by the computer to tune it. While the wife is at work that is. *****, I'm dumb. Me thinks I need a cheap laptop for the bike now.... Oh well the bikes' body is at paint anyhow, and it's winter.

I got mine of Friday or Saturday. Not sure which day because I didn't check the mail. If I had I could have started while my girl was away for the weekend. When she got home on Sunday she checked the mail. Opps, I didn't really want to tell her but the cat is out of the bag now.
I had already downloaded data [not tunes] from the TB site but I found it easier to remove it and load the data from the CD provided.
2 or 3 attempts later I had the ECU code and 20 minutes later the key.
I'm off work for a week or so from Wednesday so I'll play then.
Any ideas for first tweaking?
My bike is Aussie delivery, no SAI, I don't think it has a CAT and it has open reverse cone mufflers.
The dealer was supposed to instal the TOR tune but my initial download said the tune was 020101. I think that is the standard tune.
If you have TORS or other aftermarket silencers, I recommend the following tunes as a good place to start:
For non-SAI bikes - 20088tune_dyno 39
For SAI-equipped bikes - 20102tune_dyno
Same as above tune but altered for SAI servo recognition.
These tunes were developed over 39 dyno passes by Wayne Macdonald of TuneBoy with a bit more timing advance than stock. They have a raised rev limit as well.
I also suggest making sure the prime pulse is altered leaner to around 12800 for better start up, and that the speedometer correction is raised to about 107% higher (2745) for a more accurate reading. Some or all of this may already be done in the above tunes - just check the tune constants to be sure.
These are the tunes I started with, and that I suggest others try as a starting point. If you do not have a copy of these tunes, PM me your e-mail address and I can e-mail them to you.
As Emma Macdonald says, "Happy tuning"!

OK, so I really would like to get a good set of pipes. Dealer says that they can get the tune close even without a TB. He says unless you REALLY need to get it dead on track ready, it will not be that far off using a Triumph after market tune. He says to first try it without the TB, I could always get a TB later. Now questions,
1)Where to get a TB at a far price?
2)How close will it be w/out a TB
3)TB looks confusing and Blue Flame says TB's customer service sux, how hard is it to figure out.
4)If I get a TB where do I start.
5) Dealer does not have a dyno how do I get is right
The bike is bad azz as is, I don't want to drop $1000 on pips and $400+ on a TB and end up........
