A straightforward ECU remap for this Triumph; switching off the lambda, secondary air and sorting out fuelling.
We gave it a little more go through the ignition but you’ve got to be careful with Triumphs as too much will have the engine ‘knocking’ in the midrange. It left the workshop a lot livelier in the lower gears with a much more responsive feel.
Martin, its owner, sent us an email after he got home…
Well the 60 odd mile ride home was a revelation!
The bike feels so much sharper and is easier to drive. No more wooly over fuelling when coming off low throttle and no more popping and banging on the overrun. Loads of torque right where you need it on the road in the midrange. The top end rush is more defined as well.
It’s not one of those things where you can say “it does this, at this point” it is just better across the whole rev range. Cleaner, sharper, more precise. It is the bike Hinckley should have produced! I have had the bike 4 years and not done mega miles on it and as stock it was pretty good, the factory pipe and alleged remap were slight improvements in that the engine could breathe better but this is a whole step forward and ties all the other mods I have made together.
The bike now handles stops and thanks to your work GOES like it should. I am delighted and it was worth the effort. Anyone with a Hinckley triple who hasn’t had it set up properly is missing out on the chance to make a good road bike into a great road bike.
