Cost a little more, but guaranteed to work.
I got this cable and am now able to connect to my ecu. I read the current map that was loaded onto the motorcycle and saved it to my hard drive. I downloaded the latest map for the abs roadie (20634) but when I try to open this with tuneECU so that I can download it to my moto I get an error saying the file is corrupt (I think it also says it not supported). I tried downloading it several times but each time I get the corrupted error message. Has anyone seen this before and able to remedy it. I may try downloading the file from the website from my pc at work in case my anti-virus protection is causing the issue. Or, if anyone happens to have loaded this file onto your motorcycle maybe you could email me the file - pm me if so . Thanks

OEM Center Stand

I was at Team Triumph of Wisconsin today getting my steering bearings looked at and I asked about when the redesigned center stand would be made available. Turns out, they had one in stock for the 800 standard. So I bought it, it had the same part number as the previous stand. FYI if anyone was waiting for one.

PS- Team Triumph is the best dealer I've ever worked with.

You need to install the latest version of tuneecu, the newest maps won't work on the old version.

Thanks, that was the issue. I had previously downloaded the latest version a couple of weeks ago but never removed the older version.

I move the XM between 3 bikes. On the Goldwing I have a dedicated antenna mounted below the windshield, on the Tiger and the FatBob, I use the magnetic antenna and just stick it on the tank-no problem with a signal and doesn't move around at all

I know! Thats why I was asking for pictures and ideas of where to mount it. 100 different options could be posted, that would be 99 more than I have now... thats all I'm looking for.

Yeah. I was at Precision Triumph in RI the other day. They had one in stock for my XC. They had more if anyone needs one!

Testing the limits of the fuel gage.

Testing the limits of the fuel gage.

So, I swapped the new tube into the rear tire and set off for the gas station. Nearest is 8 miles from my house. Had two bars on the gauge, so figured all was well. Made it 7 miles on the gravel and stopped at the highway to turn to make the last mile. Bike ran rough, trying to idle at 300 rpm and died when I pulled in the clutch at the up to the stop sign. Tried four times to start it. It would bump to 300 rpm and then die again. I was starting to think stepper motor. Finally on the fifth try it started but I had to keep the revs up manually. Surprisingly it ran fine up the highway to the gas station. No stumbles at all under power but if I pulled in the clutch it would stumble and die. Let out the clutch in 6th while going down the highway and it fired up and ran smooth. Did this a couple of times just to see what would happen. It always died. Filled up and it took 4 gallons to the jail bars. Never stuttered or stumbled after getting gas and I did another 40 miles. In fact, after getting gas it started and idled perfectly. Manual says it has a 5 gallon tank but I don't know how full "full" is above the jail bars or how much was left with two bars on the fuel gauge. Low fuel light was on for a total of 10 miles but on my Daytona that usually meant one gallon. Bike ran perfectly under throttle but died at idle every time.

Thoughts?

Oh, and I threw away the little pieces of plastic that I was using to protect the rim from scratches. I figured, it's going to get scratched, I'm going to be switching between knobbies and roadies as needed and if I have a flat in the wild I won't have my little pieces of plastic. So, first scratch is there. I no longer have to worry about perfect rims. It's very liberating.

I run mine to one bar all the time. Filled up yesterday @ 199.5 miles, 4.7 gallons. Computer said --- miles to empty. I always fill up to just above the bars. I have the Arrow can with the latest tune, mileage improved a little with this tune.
