Undo the screw in the end of the bars & they come right off, easy.

Cheers,

So the diagnosis;
The new map that was installed just recently somehow had reverted to the old shipped firmware after a couple days of riding. The new map has been reinstalled and the bike is back to it's silky smooth behavior. Hat's off to the dealer for fitting me in this weekend and getting it resolved asap.

mmmm is that even possible I wonder

I really don't know, I'm just curious. Good friend of mine who raced a Daytona swore blind he had to re-load the tune he like in his bike every so often.

Just BMW's. I've not heard of ANY Ethanol related problems with any Triumph. I'm on my 3rd one, no probs. There's tons of stuff over on Parallel Universe about clogged injectors (and more) supposedly due to Ethanol sludge.

Shouldn't be. The new tune upload overwrites the old so the old is erased by loading the new.
However, these ECUs are adaptable (EPROM chip) which is why we can do that 12 minute at hot idle thing. So maybe it has done something along those lines.

That's because Triumph DESIGN their bikes (says so in the manual) to run on fuel with up to (I think) 15% Ethanol. Unlike BMW who always lets the customer do their testing.

What's been universally agreed to by SAE testing is that once the ethanol mix starts climbing above the 15% mark, small engines (includes ATVs, motorcycles, lawnmowers, boats, etc.) start failing in fairly short order. Here in the US we can have up to 10% ethanol, however there is a proposal to allow that to go up to 20%, which is totally crazy seeing as how it's been proven that small engines can't handle that sort of mix. Major changes to every small engine regardless of brand would have to do something to compensate for this change. Hopefully it won't come to pass...heck, we can't even get Congress to agree on a budget, something like fuel mix seem highly unlikely.

Our servo's seem to be withdrawing ethanol pumps {10%} they tried it in a big way 4 cents cheaper and all that but the cars ran like shit and bad fuel economy so alot people stopped using it -hence they seem to be on the way out
