Very definite change after ECU upgrade
« on: February 15, 2014, 11:09:54 pm »
Got my ECU changed today, kind of figured that I'd notice a difference. Throttle is much 'softer' off idle then it was before, to the point I almost dropped it in the parking lot at the dealer (that would've been embarrassing) as I was turning around to leave. Its not a problem at all, and after about 3 traffic lights I was used to it but caught me by surprise first thing. Throttle had some real snap to it before, now its quite a bit smoother. No doubt theres a different engine map running.
Just some mildly interesting info.
And it was flat out dumping rain, so picked up a new Triumph one piece rain suit for 1/2 off. So was toasty dry.

I too noticed a difference in the bike after my ECU change today... The revs linger at the current RPM between shifts now.  I'm going to give it some time and see if it sorts its self out.  I know they need to learn the bike again and only have 20 miles or so on it after the change.

Briang I thought Triumph stopped making that one piece. Great suit!  You didn't happen to keep the tag with the part number did you?

I sure dont see a part number. They had it hung on the clearance rack so it probably is an off model. Has a real unique zipper system on it. Kept me dry in some pretty heavy rain today.

I am waiting on news about my ECU replacement. I have noted down the current tune so will see if it changes. I assume that different markets might have different tunes to meet local standards.

Yeah they are fantastic suits. I've had mine ten years and never gotten wet. I have been looking for a backup suit just in case for about two years.  Ifyouhave the one I think you have then you made a great score

Hi John,

From "Appendix A" of Safety Recall Notice 505, Issue 1 - January 2014,
there are indeed different "tunes" for ( some ) different markets.

There is, what I will call, a "Standard" Tune for VIN range 561284 to 582450 which is "Tune number 20799"
or for VIN Range 582451 onwards, it is "Tune number 20795",
both state "Use with Production silencer, Fuel up to E25. Minimum 91 RON (87 RON/MON) fuel."

There are different tunes for French, German, and Brazil markets, dependent again on VIN number.

My UK Trophy SE falls into the earlier VIN range 561284 - 582450, and I now have Tune number 20799.

Prior to the ECU replacement, I had Tune number 020736 ( according to the info. from DealerTool ).

Now that's interesting to see that Triumph states there that the Trophy can accept up to E25 ethanol-blended gasoline. If that's not a misprint and also applies to the US/CAN models, it would seem to contradict the statement on page 70 in the owner's manual:
Ethanol
Ethanol fuel is a mixture of 10% Ethanol and
90% gasoline and is often described under
the names 'gasohol', 'Ethanol enhanced', or
'contains Ethanol'. This fuel may be used in
your Triumph motorcycle.
Now the question is which statement actually applies... Or perhaps they are referring to the E10 commonly available in the US, but up to E25 would be OK.

Questions, questions... Anyone have any definitive answers?
