They told me they will not install the standard map with an aftermarket pipe.

I would never give up the 15T front. It is too good on, and especially off, road.

DealerTool and TuneECU cables

DealerTool and TuneECU cables are NOT compatible. Just wasted a half hour of my time due to my own stupidity. I am doing my 20,000km service and the last thing to do was to replace the brake fluid, so I left my laptop connected with the DealerTool cable so I could bleed my ABS. That was a few days ago and I noticed there's a new tune available for our bikes so I downloaded the 20769 tune and then tried to install it this morning. Couldn't get TuneECU to "talk" to the bike, kept saying check the cable, turn the ignition off/on etc. Dug out the even older laptop, copied the new tune files to it, same thing, crap. Updated TuneECU, same thing, crap. Then it finally hit me, I still had the DealerTool cable installed. Plug the correct (TuneECU) cable in and hey look it works!

So next time it tells you to check the cable, just check the damn cable.

Have you noticed any differences with 20769?

I see a lot of cables out there and some good and not so good reviews. Does it really matter the cost or manufacturer?

Ok updates on the rear peg hanger repair. The welder fixed it last week and i went to see the result. Told me he took a lot of time to get it straight and was a hard repair, metal was tough to bend etc. The result wasnt so satifying because you could tell that it has been repaired, had welding marks and was some kind of "rough cut".
But , today i called the Triumph service man who is taking care of the whole repair and said that the frame painter came over and did a magnificent job. Trimmed the excess welding and made it almost exactly like new. Still havent seen it though but i hope it is better than last time i saw it after the welder job.
Btw half the bike had to be stripped of parts including the tank. Will post pictures when its done , monday hopefully.

Haven't ridden it yet, have only run it for 10 minutes to reset the adaptation. In the middle of redoing our driveway and trying to get ready for concrete that's coming so may be a day or two before I get a ride in.

I just bought my TuneECU cable off Amazon.com from a recommended dealer on Triumphrat years ago. I know it seems to be hit or miss but mine's been working fine for years on our Street, Speed and Tiger. This is the cable I bought, not sure if you'll find the same seller or not.

Your dealer is an arse. Play them at their own game then means putting OEM exhaust back on. Or get a cable and download tuneecu and do it yourself. It's no difficult if you read the manual first.

I just want to say that I love dealing with Triumph customer service. I have called them several times and the phone was always answered by the second ring and the person on the other end has always been super polite, courteous and helpful. 1-888-283-5288

Okay! Results from the rear peg hanger repair, what do you think?
Bike had to be partially stripped off parts, last image.

Looks like it came out very well.

Sure beats scrapping a bike over it.
