I've contacted leovinceusa and this is their reply: Our systems especially slip-ons need no mapping changes and run on stock settings.

Yeah, I think the conventional wisdom is that you don't need to do a remap for slip-ons. Plus the Arrow map yields worse gas mileage, so I'd switch it back when you have a chance.

My factory heated grips are way hot on high, and barely hot on low. So my only complaint is the lack of something in the middle.

The factory grips on my Sprint are plenty hot on high. Thought that low was fine also. It really depends on what gloves I wear and the outside temp. I do not care for the actual grip itself. I'm going to try something other than the OEM Triumph ones for the Tiger.

I use the arrow map with my LeoVince. It is noticeably better than standard tune.

I always keep the decibel killer installed.
That post was merged from another topic. Somebody gets off on merging T8 threads.

I rode a demo 800XC with the LeoVince and the insert was not installed. I thought it sounded awesome. When I bought my 800XC, I had them install the same setup. After my first or second ride, I put the insert in an have never looked back. I found that it was really droney for my tastes. That, plus I was heading into the Sierras and wanted to be USFS legal. It was nice that LV included several inserts with the pipes.

Yep, I always ride with insert in my LeoVince too. I actually changed silencer only for size reason - was unable to get my DYI symmetric panniers rack fitting narrow with stock pipe.

I used to ride 1000cc sport twin and 800 cc thumper before Tiger and got a bit tired of awesome but loud exhausts :)

Awesome but loud. That is a great way to put it.

I had the same issue with mine. I got it replaced under warranty. The new ones are way better but again it doesn't get overly hot. I can use it up to 40-50F I guess. Below that I will be carrying my heated gloves. Also, being from India, I might have lower cold tolerance than most. So, I would suggest that he get's it replaced under warranty and if it is still not hot enough then he can contact the Triumph Customer Service. They were willing to take mine back and give me a full refund.

This is the latest official answer from LV:
"Triumph has performance maps they can load into the bike. Since Arrow makes their official performance hop up pipe, they say its for the arrow slip-on to get people to buy it. Either way, the Arrow map will be the better choice when using our slip-on, as opposed to the stock map."

Triumph original fuel map

Another way to look at the fuel map situation: The Triumph Arrow fuel map is optimized for performance first and economy second, with the "for off road use only" disclaimer for legal EPA compliance issues. The Triumph original fuel map is for the best mix of performance and economy, but with compromises built in to meet EPA regulations, just like the OE muffler. Meaning squeaky clean, very lean idle and part throttle air fuel ratios. Some may not feel that there is enough difference between the maps to make the slight loss of fuel economy worth while. Others (Myself) like letting Triumph engineers set the map values for optimum performance, and can live with the slight difference in mileage. Making the EPA happy is not very high on my list. Enjoying the Tiger triple is. Ken

Well...I'll be honest...
At 1.65 euro per 1 liter of 95 here I do care about good fuel economy. Not because of EPA, but cynical $$$ reason
