I have recently bought a brand new Bonnie and I am currently running it in . I have bought some immaculate genuine Triumph TOR silencers ( the louder one's) , now I know that Triumph sell you a remap when you buy from them , my question is "Do I need the remap" ? I have fitted the silencers and the bike runs as well as before , I have only done 30 miles but everything seems great . If I don't need to remap I'd rather not then I can swap back without any hassle , my dealer is bound to tell me I need to remap so thought I'd ask here first . Thanks for any help.

Welcome Andy,i`m surprised your bike runs well as you say with the TOR cans.The engine will be running hotter on a weaker mixture and being an air cooled engine could suffer in hot weather (if it comes).
Water cooled engines can handle a weaker mixture that`s why there`s more about for stupid E.E.C. emissions.
How about your warranty? This could be void if problems occur because off a weak mixture.
I suggest you keep it original until run in.Or keep on the right side with the dealer and a remap.
Are you sure the bike runs ok at constant revs inbetween 2,000/3,000rpm?
I'm with jaffa
got yourself a nice new bike,zorst but don't want to pay for a remap
Get a diagnostic cable and go to TuneECU lots of useful Triumph remap options there, sorted my m8's 955 Tiger out, but as jaffa say's watch that warranty.

It's not that I don't want to pay for a re map just that it seems to run so nicely . Only took it out for a short spin , will swap them back and when it goes for 500 mile service I'll put em back on and get the re map done . Cheers guys .
Dropped my 2012 se off at the dealer today and they fitted the TORS pipes and did the re-map. It now sounds like a Bonneville should , mid range torque is better , it pulls perfect all the way to the red line , idle is smoother, it's a different bike .
Get it done , they did my install and re-map for free as I purchased the TORS from them.
