Mounted one on my roadie: removed the cannister and plugged the hoses. The fit is perfect and the unit is well-made, very easy to install, works great.

An inmate here has some good LED spots and floods

I put a pair of the spots on my hepco tank protector bar and used the Triumph fog light switch and sub loom.
worked very well.

Alas no good pics, because of Garage fire but this sort of gives an idea of what they look like and where they sit (sat)

Any special reason, why you used the Arrow map?

In the british Tiger800 board somebody contacted LeoVince and they told him that the standard map should be used with their cans as only for the 'original' Arrow can the special map is needed, all other aftermarket cans should work with the normal map!

My roadie also works perfectly with the standard map - was by my dealer two weeks ago for service, and they put on the Arrow map on my bike (don't know why) and immediately the tiger consumed approx. 0.5l/100km more fuel, also wasn't able to feel better performance and i think, it didn't rev out as 'freely' as it was before! So back to standard map thanks to TuneECU!

The only reason, which could be possible for me - with the Arrow map the mixture should be more rich on fuel, which maybe could be necessary in the States, as you don't have 91 or 95 octane fuel like we here in europe as far as i know!?

Greetings from Vienna, Austria!

All the bikes coming to USA have a "Euro" map & it is the dealers responsibility to correct this before delivery, because of our crappy gas. Problem is many dealers are not doing this.

I'm just passing this on, I never said it was gospel. As the 800XC will be my next purchase, I have been watching this thread.
There are no USA maps & Euro maps.

Here are the current 800 tunes:

20636Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20630
20637Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20631
20632Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20626
20634Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20628

So basically a "standard" tune & an "Arrow" tune, abs & non abs

Here are the 800xc current tunes
20633Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON). Replaces the 20627
20635Map.hex OEM md5checksum ABS Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON). Replaces the 20629
20636Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with standard silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20630
20637Map.hex OEM md5checksum Use with Arrow slip-on silencer. Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON)fuel. Replaces the 20631

Not sure what break the bank is for you but check out Rigid Industries. Best lights in my opinion!

Octane is simply measured using a different method in North America; our 87 octane is equivalent to Europe's 90 octane. Your 95 octane is equivalent to 91 octane here. And most gas stations here also carry 93-octane premium, which is equivalent to your 98 octane (we use the AKI octane rating scale, while Europe uses the RON scale).

Ok - so no reason to use Arrow map on any other than a Arrow can. As far as i know, Akrapovic is the only aftermarket can, which has/works on an own map for his part, all others should work well with the standard one. The only 'plus' for the Arrow map is a plus in fuel usage...

I run Rigid Dually D2's in Driving mode, with the Hepco-Becker top guard, which I bought specifically because of it's level front pipe and lamp mounts. I ordered the Triumph harness and switch so it matched the heated grip button and it's very nice. I actually aim them slightly splayed as they have a slightly spreading pattern in a "tall oval" shape; this gives me more peripheral lighting while still full power straight ahead too. Very good lights and if you get the Marine ones, they're white, which match the best Tiger 800 XC colour available.

No special reason, no. It just seemed logical that an after market pipe that enhances performance would need it, such as the Arrow or LV. It's running great with the Arrow map, but I didn't really run it that long on the default one. The one thing I did notice with the stock map was more popping on deceleration, after the Arrow map it was popping the same as stock can/stock map. So do we know all the differences in these maps, is it just an air-fuel change? If it seems like its running great, is there a not quite so apparent reason I should go back to default? Looks like I may have to look into this.

Yeah, my dealer put those on backwards, but I didn't really care as I thought it was a purely cosmetic difference. I also thought about switching them myself, but it seemed I'd have to get the oil cooler off and I just didn't feel up for that until I got to oil change #2 - I never got to oil change #2. :)

Slight correction, In Canada we also use the RON method,

Generally around these parts

87 = Regular
89 = what do they call this? Mid-Grade?
91 = Super
94 = Super Duper (Sunoco and some others)

That's the AKI scale, same as the US (also known as the (R+M)/2 scale). The RON scale, used in Europe, uses higher numbers.
