Good tune for my bike?!
« on: 12 June, 2018, 05:22:43 PM »
Hi Guys,

I got a tiger 1050, hereby the specs/settings;

-build 2009
-VIN 535378
-EUW (the Netherlands)

Old situation;
OEM air filter
SAI as standard
OEM standard exhaust
Dave's tune

Result; Big difference with standard mapping, very powerfull and nice "blopping" sound if I close the throttle. Happy with it but I wanted an open exhaust because the standard pipe is tooooooo silent....the only thing is the snatchyness till 3000 RPM (I also had that issue with the factory map 2011)

New situation;
K&N airfilter
SAI as standard
Scorpion open exhaust
Dave's tune

Result; Quick acceleration in lower to middle RPM's. But,.... a big (to big) loss in middle and high RPM's. The snatchyness is almost gone, I like that!

Question;
Its logical that with this higher airflow this is the result but now I am searching for a new mapping. Does anyone have a good idea? (please not the factory mappings because they suck IMO). Arrow? TOR? Indy's?

Thanks for your feedback!
Aydee

As you are now, try 20545, with 95/98 fuel.

I ran that tune for about 5 years on my MKI.

Changed tunes for track days etc. but always went back to 20545.

Good luck  :031:

Apologies if i am elbowing on your thread AyDee  :431: but
i was thinking of loading Daves V2 map as well,  :027:
my setup is almost the same as yours AyDee

OEM Triumph airfilter
Airbox Mod (yeah yeah i know i need to block the hole in the clean side as well  :010: )
SAI as standard
SC Project exhaust with baffle in
20542 Arrow Road tune
mine is snatchy in low gear & low rpm & sometimes feels as though its out of balance or running lumpy - new spark plugs or different map needed  :187:
would i be better off with 20545 or Daves V2 map?

You should try them both to see which one suits your riding style best.

I ran 20545, with a Booster Plug installed, and it was very smooth indeed, with power delivery though the entire range.

FWIW.... I put the Triumph TOR pipe on and loaded the 20452.  It didn't run well, just like yours, until I looked at the fueling.
It was not right on one cylinder in the low revs, so I changed it on the map to match the other cylinders.
It made a huge difference, so I saved it off under a different number code for me.

I also tried the 20545 tune, but my 2010 didn't like it at all.
I downloaded the 20542 map from the same website I got the 20545, and forgot that it didn't work well.
I then uploaded my saved file and life is now good!!   :152:

You mentioned the booster plug in another post awhile ago, what does it do & where do you plug it in?

thanks TR , i am guessing that the 20542 map was loaded on the bike by triumph as it was fitted with an arrow when i bought it,
i have TuneECU so could look at the map settings but really not sure what to adjust & not confident in messing about with it.  :031:

Basically fools the ECU into thinking its colder than it is so you get a bit more fuel, plugs into the airbox temp sensor normally

Thanks Tim, will see how much they are and try one to see if it improves the snatchy throttle  :031:
