Question Tuneboy or TuneECU for Triumph Daytona 955i?

Many Triumph people swear by Tuneboy on the ol' interwebs. Apparently the stock upgrade map is crude in comparison and doesn't have the adjustability and tuning quality. PC just doesn't seem to have the gravitas with the Triumph.

Now, a recent app is TuneECU. From what I read, it only requires a cord (obd2 to usb) and the app and multiple maps are available to download and program into the Triumph. Again, it's tuneable by the user.

I am trying to get a better tune on a Daytona 955i.
1)Does anyone have experience with Tuneboy or TuneECU here?

2) Is there a Triumph shop that tunes on a dyno with the tuneboy or TuneECU?

3) Is there a really knowledgeable Triumph shop in the NW?

I have never used tuneboy, but I do use tuneecu on my 07 Daytona 675. I love it. It works great. It's easy to use and has lots of flexibility. If you would like get it tuned professionally then Nel's is the best place to go. They also use tuneecu for tuning compatible bikes. They do full dyno and tune.

I've used TuneECU with my Speed Triple. It worked great. Like anything else when it comes to these things, a good tuner is the key. Nels worked on my Speed Triple and results were amazing. Best bang for the buck you are going to spend on the machine.

Another vote for TuneECU. It's free and all you need is the OBD2 to USB cable. Make sure you get the right one. Get the TuneECU and the cable and download the suggested map from TuneECU's website assuming your bike is in stock trim. Loading the new map to your bike's ecu is trivial, but pay attention to what you are doing. If your bike has an aftermarket pipe and/or air filter, search online and find a map from a Daytona 955i with similar mods. It will get you fairly close, but not ideal. For best results, call Nels.

If you are in the greater Portland area, I can help you load the suggested TuneECU map if you have the cable.

I'm picking up the bike to work on today. I know it doesn't run quite as good as it should but does have the Triumph carbon (race?) can on it. I think it might be made by Arrow?

Also, do you know which cable is the right one?

I love TuneECU, I've used it on about a dozen Daytona 675's. This is the cable I use: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...rch_detailpage

If it's the genuine Triumph carbon pipe, it has TOR (Triump Off-road racing) stamped on it and it's a highly sought after modification for 955i Daytonas especially if it's the high mount version. I believe there is a map for that pipe at: https://www.triumphtorque.com/kb/map...1-Daytona.aspx

cable

Actually, the wording reads, "Triumph, not for Road Use"...



I did get the right cable too. Is the dealer installed tune going to be any different?

When you say dealer installed tune are you referring to the OEM tune or a tune put on the bike from a dealer? It will be different from OEM and might be different from the dealer tune.

AFAIK, the dealer installed a Triumph code with the pipe...

Ok, so I didn't have all the right pieces to hook up to my phone. It's ordered and should be here by Friday...

Hook up TuneEcu to your Daytona and read the loaded map's number. You can then look it and figure out which OEM tune it is and what mods it is for. The link with the maps I posted earlier has a number of different maps. Some will be identical to the OEM tunes, others are further modified by users. You can compare maps in TuneECU before deciding which one to load.
