So when you use the tune boy and get full power in all 5 gears, how would you describe the difference it makes in 1st and 2nd?

It's more of a.....


"Wow that's the way this bike is supposed to be. I can't believe those bastards at Triumph tried to gyp me out of a few more ponies. Wayne from Tuneboy is a mad genius."

So it's more like a - "wow that's cool" than "wow that scared the crap out out of me!" difference?

According to my dyno results, the difference was about 12 lb ft of peak torque - between about 2700 and 3300 rpm - between the limited stock tune and the Tuneboy tune with the secondaries open. It doesn't affect peak HP.

YeeHaw:bch:

I've just started toying with TuneBoy and by jesus I'm flying now. Well, not quite. I'm working up to full open in 1st and 2nd still. I tromped on it (apprentice style) in 2nd and went light headed RIGHT-NOW. YeeHaw. I'm holding off going full 100% until I get a new rear skin (8K) <cluck cluck cluck.

It's smooth, responsive, and did I say, "YeeHaw":D Oh yeah, that's a Tourer with standard pipes and no stinky cat box.

Does anyone know of any way to contact tune boy other than the support@tuneboy.com.au or how long does it normally take to hear back from them? I sent them an email yesterday morning and have not heard back from them yet. I was wanting to order but before I did I wanted to see how long before they could ship it. I was going to order from newr3 before they closed for vacation, but they did not have any in stock and said that tune boy was running about 3 weeks behind in their orders.
