Two Bros are illegal in Europe, so for us it is no choice. I have seen tons of SS exhausts that lasted years, but they weight a ton - why they won't last...there are plenty of solid metal there

I've seen cheap cans last a lot and expensive go to pieces, I must admit I also seen Two Bros cans go bad on bikes of my friends in Eastern Europe etc. - anything possible, no argument from my side. For me - I like to save weight and space and have exhaust that not too hot so luggage will be OK - but that's personal choice. I am just saying - LV became much better. Finish of link pipe alone was impressive and attention to details too. Even spacers are turned to nice shape and polished.

TuneECU on 2013

Does anyone know if the current version of TuneECU supports the 2013 model year 800/800XC?

Similar story....Two Bros on my Speed Triple and have had the bike for 5 years and the PO fitted it. I think it's probably 7 or 8 years old at least and has done 30K miles ?

I think triumph made 2013+ not accessible with tunecu, like the explorer.

Got about 10k miles with the 15T. It really helped this newbie with the slow dirt stuff. 6-7 mph off idle and running right at 6000rpm @ 80mph. Still getting 45-50 mpg with the stock map and a LV can. I tried the Arrow map and it dropped the mpg to less than 38 with only a slight performance bump.

Got my frame guards today. Installed them as well. They fit and look pretty good.

I am going to try the smaller c/s sprocket soon, but like you say, I likely won't leave it on every day.
At least it is small enough to carry in your kit for when you
do want to do some technical riding.
Gas mileage isn't all that great now but I'll bet it will be even
more fun with the lower gearing!

First I'd heard of that but their site http://www.tuneecu.com/TuneECU_En/index.html does say "up to 2012" so I guess you're right.

Er, yeah, along with the 'effin' great socket and handle you need to get it off.

Looks nice, get them locally or online somewhere? I'm thinking of doing the same.
