No guess work on my behalf, the bike is with an ex Triumph mechanic, using triumph's dealer tool, but I don't think apart from the arrow option , any other maps are loaded onto the triumph tool, hence why i may try the tune ecu route, i don't have access to a local rolling road unfortunately

Have the basics been done? e.g. TBs balanced, checked for no leaks round TB rubber trumpets, etc. ?

Stop the guess work and stick it on a rolling road/dyno , no more "is this map better than that map".  :490:

Noone wants to spend the money. I didn't either :008:

I'm sure 30 to check the map is cheaper than a burnt valve or damaged piston. :027:

BTW, something on another thread reminded me. Make sure you're using fresh (i.e. less than 1 month old) petrol, ideally 97/98 RON. Some cheaper fuels have brought distinct coughs and splutters, plus off-idle flat spots on my bikes. These bikes are too highly tuned to put up with some of the crap that old bikes don't even notice.

You should ask the previous owner what he has set up. He might have a custom tune' to suit his riding. Unlikely to be an old tune.
