+1 and in the process

Looks like you've discovered Rottweiler.
I have no need for for any of their extra power options but have been happy to avail myself of their solutions to many of the pesky random electronics 'errors' to which the the SD-R and SD-GT are prone. Suppose it's to expected on a bike that sports 7, yes seven, separate ECUs.

The HealTech ESE (Exhaust Servo Eliminator) might just be the best $82 I've spent on a motorcycle in a long time.

Apologies to the op for hijacking their thread.

Moto Hooligan didn't think the Rottweiler was good value but just part of the process of getting the bike to fuel as it should rather than what the TUV want.

Back on track I think the new 900 and what looks like a smaller 1200 are the first major steps Triumph have taken in 20 years,re a Tiger with 17" wheels put Dymags on mine must 18 years ago and hence why I still have it has 42/43,000 miles on it and still goes like a good'un,including doing Barcelona/Birmingham in 16 hours and thats including the ferry crossing.

I assume you B2B  :002: oh blimey thats a first doubting it was done out the door at 5am home at 9pm and a wife on the back teboot having been in Misano for the GP then on to Barcelona the week later for another and not having day under 30c the further north we went the cooler it got and the happier we were,and as ive Said over the years  what makes for a fast bike is a big tank.   :001:,neither our KTM,X/R,K1200r have managed to break our times from either Holyhead/Dover/Portsmouths/home where as the old Tiger and even older 1100s with a 25l have done but maybe not as exciting.

Just for the record its 1050 miles  :001: only ever done 2 big 1000 mile days.

See attachment. It's all at the top end though, courtesy of the 11,500rpm redline. I've a had a few S3s and you can ride it just like one of those if you want. I've never actually ridden it in anger but it is nice to know it's there if you want. It's also the sweetest engine you can imagine. I recall reading the many forged, shot peened and lightweight internals, which were unique to the 02-06 Daytona, were subject to much greater attention during selection and assembly that also included being balanced to a greater degree. When the 1050 Speed Triple was launched in 2005 some of the very first ones used the remaining inventory of Daytona internals. There was also some uncertainty about where the 1050 would be redlined but they reverted to normal internals (too expensive perhaps) and set it's redline to 10,000rpm from late 2007 when they went to the V2 Keihin ECU.
