Not to hijack but I have noticed that the Stayintune decats and uses a crossover to equalize backpressure but the Hogslayers are really straight pipe style exhaust. You can always dyno tune any bike if you have the correct interface software that allows you to adjust AF/ratios and timing. Does anyone you know of make a tuner for the TBird yet?
Will a powervision system work?
Thing is, i was using a custom dyno tune by a very respected tuner, and after about 6 months of that i put the stock 1700/tors tune back in and the bike runs much better in all ways including power, (particularly low end) smoothness, fan goes on less, (obviously runs cooler) better MPG, low speed cruise, and less random engine noises. Point is, i think triumph knows this bike and knows how to make it run right better than 3rd parties. If you wanna really boost the heck out of it then dyno tunes are your only option. But i firmly believe that if you're going to run anything different than what triumph offers which is only open pipes/filter, then your ride isn't going to be optimal. I believe triumph just simply knows more about thier creation than guys who dyno every type and brand of bike on the market who don't know this bike like the back of thier hand. Triumph spent 4 years designing and building and tweaking it to perfection, and my experience at least more than speaks to what i'm saying. yes, emissions are part of thier agenda, but i believe the tors tunes are not nearly as emissions conscious because the pipes are not street legal so they don't need to worry about that. All i know is mine runs so much better in many way than it did with a custom tune. And decat will throw that off.
So go with a decat setup if you want, but I firmly believe the proper triumph tune with tors and filter will get you a better running bike tho. You'll just have to trust what i said above, but my bike is truly running better in all those ways i mentioned and VERY noticeably over a dyno tune made by a guy who is very well respected even by member power tripp who is considered a very experienced dyno tuner himself. and a set of tors is about 1/2 the price. Wish anyone who thinks i'm wrong could take mine out for a spin !
As to tuning solutions, we have power commander, tuneboy, and the most popular, tuneecu. Tuneecu is free. the other 2 are around $500 not counting any dyno time. I used it to swap maps but since my bike runs so good i will only be using it for error checking, balancing throttle bodies, and other things like that. requires a cable you can get for $10-20.
