You won't fry anything.... unless you try to hook it directly to the battery!!

TuneECU gets a little picky about the order of events, such as hooking up the cable, turning on the bike, booting up the TuneECU program, choosing the right interface, etc...

I don't use it enough to remember the order, so I have to play with it a minute to figure it out.
I do remember, however, that loading the map currently on your bike takes a while.

I'm sure there some stickeys on the forum that talk about this.

You can connect up and just look at it initially, don't need to change anything. Obvious check is to see if throttle bodies are balanced. Connect by cable to laptop or mobile phone.

TuneECU instructions (on website) a great help ....

If your laptop is running Windows 10 - No.
windows 8 I think yes, but the TuneECU guide in the stickies is easy to follow & tells you what you need to do, step by step.  :123:
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE .... got there in the end.

OK, after much thought I went down the Android route, if I understood everything correctly is as follows:
1/ Android is supported ?
2/ No driver downloads required?
Either way, I've just plucked up enough courage to try a connection, firstly connect all the cables, open the app, allow for a connection for the app.
Hey presto it all seems to work, did not go any further at present, not even started the bike. So just had a quick look around, my tune is 20712 what ever that is, more reading to do regarding maintaining a good voltage to enable minimum connection issues, which fuse to pull etc etc......
Scary stuff for me this, unknown territory

There arent many maps for the MK 1 TS, If you look at the Triumph Tunes on the Tune ECU website you will see that 20712 is the std map for use with production silencer etc. Only option for you really is 20715 which is for aftermarket silencer
