IF the bike was a year old and had 7k leave the plugs.
There is a known issue with water getting into the plugs and rusting.

IMO, pull the airbox. Plug the hole in the clean side. Consider pulling the dog bone. (can be put back later)
Replace the plugs with Iridium so you know there not seized in place. A little dielectric grease on the plug side and around the coil seal.
You can also check the air filter.

Yes Dave's tune should be best fit.
If balance is 10 off leave it, over 20 no choice get it done.

Check sticky's.

Looking for some info.
I downloaded Dave's map onto the laptop and opened TuneECU. I backed up the bikes existing map and then opened the new one.
When I click to download, the map name still has 20548 in it. Is this correct?
I don't know if it has successfully written Dave's map to the ECU or not?

Yes that's correct, mine did the same. If you look at the bottom bar of tuneecu it shows that it is loading daves v2  map. 👍

Thats good to know. So if I start up TuneECU tomorrow, the map name should be different? Be very confusing if not.
Incidentally, for anyone thats interested, I applied Daves map, reset adaptions and waited for the little green TPS light. All good.
I wasnt sure if the map had applied (see above comments) so Im just back from a 65 mile test ride.

What a difference  :020:
Throttle increase is smoother, there,s very little snatching when opening and closing and I swear the bike actually sounds different.
Big plus for this map. My next move is to fit a Remus Hexicone or a SC Project if I can find a high mount one I like. Little mods 1 at a time.

Exactly what I found when I loaded the map on Sunday, 4 days in and am loving the smoother throttle cruising at 30 to 70mph, bike also feels quicker and  more powerful when overtaking  :123:
AND that lovely burble from the SC Project is sooooo addictive  :020:

Is your SC a high or low mount?

its the standard high mount, heres a picture
BTW, i dont think the Remus Hexacone fits the T1050 - only the TigerSport, i found that when i was looking to replace the Arrow i had on mine, the latest shape exhausts for Scorpion &  Remus  didnt fit :151:

Having just watched a video of the SC project, I am now verging toward this. The hexacone apparently does fit however, its 490. SC Project have the one in the picture below for 380 which is 320 ish and it looks awesome. 3 week delivery time.

I think I may be sold.

Yes I paid 360 + about 20 delivery for mine when I ordered it from the factory in January but it takes more than 3 weeks to get it, mine took 7 weeks and I am sure that the one Berwick bandit ordered for his sport took a similar time.  But it's worth the wait 👍👍👍
