    Re-mapping - whatís to gain?

    My 2018 Tiger has reasonable fuelling (for me), I guess it could be a bit irritating if I did a lot of town riding, but I donít and itís just fine on the open road.  So, aside from smoothing things out Is there anything to gain, like more power  :028: from a re-map? And is it easily done?

    Essentially, Triumph has developed a map for the Tiger 800 that it believes is a good compromise between the amount of power and torque generated and the rate at which it consumes fuel - and, of course, it has to meet increasing emission standards. In principle, by re-mapping, you can change the trade-off and get more power and torque at the expense of lower mpg - and increase the level of harmful emissions.  Obviously, it can be more subtle than that but that is the basic trade-off involved.

    Can the ECU be accessed for map change on a gen3 model?

    Re  remapping, I'm thinking of doing it after my warranty is out, been looking at this site -

    Some good customer reviews on the Trident remap, I would expect the same sort of result on a Tiger.

    Modern bikes are tuned to pass a test that is stated on the log book. It's not to do with balancing anything. My 800 ran much better after the remap because you don't get that stumble where the engine is forced to pass that test.

    I talked myself into a remap on a GS 1200 twin cam and made a massive difference, pick-up was smoother, fuelling much better (though it wasnít too bad as standard) and a significant increase in power which I could feel as well as see on the dyno charts.  And it was even better with a set of decat headers.  The end can and air filter were kept standard.

    From what Iíve read so far I could expect better fuelling but not any significant power increase?  And there isnít anything to gain, except sound and weight loss from changing the can, and the standard air filter is fine for general road use- which is not the case on many Triumph twins, from what Iíve read.
