Here is the one that I used, just don't use the software that comes with the cable, TuneECU software should connect itself.

This one is a for-sure working example:

As soon as I plugged it in everything connected just fine. So beware, not all cables are the same.

SW-MOTOECH EVO Topring concern

I hate to bring up an old topic, but... I received my SW-MOTECH City tank bag and was going to mount it today. The bag itself looks great, but I'm leary of the topring kit.

I was expecting the simplicity of a quick pin to release the bag, but it has a rotary mechanism that actuates four dogs that release the bag. My main concern is with the release pull cord that routes through the body of the mount. If (when) this cord fails there is no way to release the bag. I hate it when manufacturers make designs more complex with little to no benefit in function.

Has anybody with this topring had any issues? Share my concerns?

I have this one, used it yesterday to put the Arrow map on the bike. The bike is noticeably quicker with the Leo Vince on, and the pipe can be touched even after 12 miles of city riding.

Leo Vince carbon or aluminum? I would expect the carbon not to get too hot but just thought I'd ask.

Yep, the carbon one. You don't want your hand to linger, but short touches are no problem. It is cooler than the Arrow on my former bike...

Question Auxiliary Lighting

I'd like to add auxiliary lighting to my Tiger 800, but not sure if I should go OEM fog lights or some other lights like PIAA. Does anybody have any suggestions on good lights that won't break the bank?

I'd like to hear what others have installed and how they worked out for you.

About the ECU re-map

I was at a dealership the other day & asked how many 800s they have sold. He guessed about 30. Then I asked about the ECU "issue" I've been reading about. Here's the story I got from this dealer (known to be reputable):
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.

I have been thinking about this for a while also. I have been watching the LED lights that Sanjoh sells in the "Vendors" section and likely would purchase those if I were to add additional lights. For now I have purchased some Phillips Extreme Vision H-4 bulbs which I have yet to install. If the additional lighting from those is sufficient for me I will not be buying extra lights. I tend not to ride at night because of where I live. We have a huge deer population and I impacted a deer myself two years ago. This last year alone I have witnessed two deer impacts and one Elk impact. So I only ride at night when my planning has failed. Anyway, getting off topic here, but have a look at Sanjoh's lights, they are about $120 a piece for a lot of lumens.

Personally have seen the Sanjoh's Led lights...great light/ lumen output & the quality is good.
I will probably buy a set soon....

I have the Fuel Midi Can(no insert baffle) on mine & the Drone it emits at cruising speed pisses everyone off that's behind me. How the sound at cruise speed? I love the sound ...but the Drone!

Yeah, I noticed that as well. However, I can see and reach the dogs with a screwdriver to push them back to release the bag without scratching the tank. Move one and they all move. I'm not worried about it and will occasionally check the integrity of the string.

USB Port.

I installed a Tapp-Lite USB power power port on my bike today. Very easy install, though it probably took me an hour and a half as I usually just plod along.
