I asked the service manager at Jack Lilley why they might install a new fuelling map at the first service, and he explained it would just be a routine update. At every service they will check which map is installed on your bike, and if a newer one is available they will install that instead. They don't use a pre-first-service "break-in" map.

Excellent, thanks for clearing that up for us.

The fuelling maps are subject to ongoing development so a new one could be released at any time.

Of course if you decide to get the Arrow replacement silencer then the dealer will install a bespoke map for it. The Arrow map is optimised for the can with the baffle out (probably to avoid the mixture running too lean), but will also work fine with the baffle in.

Excellent !! thanks for it !! I suggest the dealer to give me my new bike with the latest software on it...I'll know when it will be available next Tuesday!!

for those who practise Zen and the black art of motorcycle maintenance, then surely its not a major task to swing by a dealer and get the remapping done, when convenient for both. if the service takes less than an hour.. then a remap must be a matter of minutes.... probably get charged an hours labout mind you, unless you pre agree the uploading as part of the sale.

gwan be honest, how much time could you waste at a dealer slavering over the bikes and whatever else whilst the bike is being tinkered with.... treat it as aan excuse to go call in to the dealer. heck play your cards right and it could become a regular excuse.. "sorry darling, got to pop down to the dealers to get the ECU remapped"  :138:
IIRC, US Triumph dealers install new Tunes ... FREE ... during the warranty period. Can any US Triumph riders confirm (or deny) this??  :187:
This would make sense especially if the "new" Tune is in fact the real Tune meant to be run after the break in period. I would think a "break-in" Tune would be fluffier (rich) and perhaps limit RPM's a bit?  :084:

 I was told by a guy a few years ago that at the 500 service they plug in for a remap

 and at the same time they check to see if the bike has been over reved,  :084: Not sure

Get TuneECU, free, you just need to buy a cable, mine cost 11.  The advantage over the tuneboy software, apart from being free, is that you can upload your existing tune from the bike.  Once that is done you have a reference.  Get the updated tune at the 1st service, upload that as well and use the TuneECU comparison function.

BTW, when I had the first service on my Ducati 749S they told me that the run in oil was semi synthetic and after that fully synthetic.
