Could it default back to imperial when a new tune is loaded as that would explain the change from 40mpg to 50mpg (or at least according to the knackered calculator on my desk it would)

So I called and they really do not have a number for the map. They said it is the most recent map released by Triumph for the 800. You will need to visit a dealer and have them connect up your bike to know if you have the most recent. I know there are some members with dealer tools or other devices that may be able to determine the map in place, not sure if you are one who can do that? Sorry I can't be more specific.
I would recommend buying a ODB cable (less than $20 on ebay) and use the TuneECU (free) program. It is an invaluable tool to have IMO! Just load TuneECU on a laptop and hook up the cable to your bike and presto, all the map info you need. You can find all the latest maps here for download.

thanks for checking. I have the tune ecu software I was just wondering if the latest code on the tune ecu site matched yours. I think the most recent release was in January.

I am currently at tune 20629; I performed that via TuneECU in September 2011, and the TuneECU site shows that as still the current tune for an XC with ABS and standard silencer.

I recently loaded the latest tuneECU map for the Arrow Exhaust and in the process I saved the current map from my bike (20629). To get to the point, my dealer as of Feb 2012 said that the last map I had on the bike (20629) was still the most current that they have in their system.

Modified Arrow baffle with 42 holes, I'm thinking about adding a few more just for the hell of it
And the end hole is .8" by just grinding some material off the end.




And my tune is 20631 which I belive is the current one for the Arrow.

So while I had the baffle out look what happened
It got more holes for a total of 54




Don't know what it sounds like yet but I imagine it will sound good.

Good idea with the baffle jblk! According to tuneECU, that is the latest tune for the arrow for non-ABS bikes.

I just sent out some parts (handlebars, triple trees, hand rails, risers, etc..) to get powder coated gunmetal black I'm sending out the pipes/header to get ceramic coated this weekend. Need opinions...Do I go black or brushed steel like the Leo pipe? That Leo pipe can also get coated black. My tiger is orange.

I think the brushed steel would look great with the pipe on the Leo. Post some pics which ever way you go and an idea of how much it costs.

By Jove, you got it. Mine has been reading high calculated mpg ever since it's 6k service. (latest tune was installed)
Dealer said they would reload tune but it didn't help
After reading this, I went and checked and lo, the thing was set at imperial gallons.

Now it's back to normal

I would love to know how you got the baffle out - is it easy enough? And it would be great if you could post a video of what it sounds like after the mod. I have an arrow pipe, I love the sound but would like it just a little bit louder.

Of curse now I had to go out and check mine and it was set to US MPG. The other choices are liters/kilometer, kilometers/liter, and MPG which I assume is Imperial.

Getting the baffle out is easy, just stuff a paper towel in the hole so when you drop the retaining screw it doesn't fall into the muffler. I just stick a piece of steel rod into the baffle and wiggle it around while pulling, you can also use a broom stick or wooden dowel to wiggle it out. And when doing the holes use a 3/8 or 10mm dia end mill preferably carbide center cutting, I used a 5 flute cause I had one. I suppose you could use a drill bit but be careful and clamp the baffle down securely or it may ride up when the drill breaks through and whack the crap out of you.
I'll try and get a video this weekend.

Being retired has its benefits
Shot the video and not so sure I didn't put to many holes in the baffle proof will be in going for a ride and see how it sounds with my helmet on.
