Hi all, I keep hearing Indy's tune won't work without de-catting first but it runs great on mine. Recently did 2 weeks in Spain, ran perfectly, very smooth and quick to rev, never stalled and averaged 52.2mpg.  Worth a try that's all I am saying.
My spec is:
2008 Tigger
Airbox mod
K&n filter
Indy' tune
Tiger sport exhaust
thanks Pumpkin,  :152:
have just come across your post on P47 of Indy's who can use my tune
I discounted Indy's map as he replied as follows to me when I asked if his tune would work with my setup..

"If stock. Dave's or Arrow road.   Dikman's tune list has the real numbers instead of names.
Mine will be TOO rich. NO cat, and NO baffle. with dogbone opened up..
At least do the hole in the clean side fix."

so going by your setup the only difference between my bike & yours is a K&N air filter & possibly removing the baffle?  :031:

I think its time to give his map a go & if it doesn't run any better try Daves V2, Arrow race or revert to the standard Arrow road 20542 map.  :087:
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE .... got there in the end.

Thanks Aydee, not too bothered about a bit less power in mid range. Just trying to find best solution for the snatchy throttle at low speed and rpm.  :173:
I knew that indies tune would only work if I did a decat, so wondered if Dave's v2 tune would be good? There doesn't seem to be many using his map as most seem to do all the mods and load indies map. :027:

Hi Tigermike,
The Dave V2 tune is GREAT with stock exhaust and stock airbox with stock filter. BIG difference, nice to ride with. BUT,.... it doesn't change alot to the snatchyness.... Now I still use this Dave V2 tune but when I changed the exhaust, I need to change the tune and the airfilter. I already put the new K&N airfilter in place and the snatchyness (in my case) is almost gone. But,.... in my case I miss the mid range power in this current situ.

In a couple of minutes Im gonna compare the tunes for my setting! (Dave V2 vs this 20... tune)

Ok I checked this 20545 mapping and I don't think it will solve my issue...it is less rich in the middle range and I think it is based on the Dave V2 mapping only then a bit smoothed out.

Any other good reviews on tunes with K&N airfilter, open exhaust? Otherwise I will reinstall the normal filter and keep to the Dave V2 mapping   :006: I've read on the forum that the "Stolten" map is good too?! Is that a good option for my bike maybe?

There's no reason as to why you can't try them all and form your own opinion.

Hi guys,

I installed the tune from the link. I still have the same issue. First two gears are QUICK and down in first gear the snatchyness is very little now, nice to drive with. But, in third gear, arround 3-4000 rpm the engine holds in. I'm gonna try another tune...

Any suggestions? Specs:

build 2009
VIN 535378
EUW (the Netherlands)
K&N airfilter
SAI as standard
CAT in place
Scorpion open exhaust
I had the Dave's V2 tune and tried the 20550 atm

Is there a kind of USB kind of thing what records the mapping during the ride maybe?! So i can show you guys some data?

No such luxury  :110:

I believe that if you stick with that tune and install a Booster Plug, your snachy issues will be a thing of the past  :169:

The Bluetooth dongle recommended for TuneECU connects to an Android phone. But I don't think anyone's actually tried recording data live during a ride! Should be possible in theory, but maybe someone has tried it and failed?

I did that once on my sprint. Can't remember which app but it may have been Torque. My original idea was to overlay the data on my video footage with GPS and engine info included but quickly realised how much harm such a video might cause if inadvertently published. It did work though.
