    No, you don’t want to be deleting them, they’re quite essential :p

    Jokes aside, what exactly is being deleted?

    If your going to delete the air cleaner you need some decent velocity stacks on them.;)

    Well it's about time your slugs stumbled outta the pub!
    Ah, I figured out the answer to my question and wanted to delete the post but couldn't so I did the next best thing -
    But now that you're here I have another question - I want to balance my throttle bodies but have to figure out how to hook up a fuel supply and what tool to get -

    Usually a set of three vacuum gauges to balance...and presuming it was previously a carb model a fuel pump that provides the correct pressure for the injectors...and an ECU .

    This is a fuel injected model. I was thinking to just suspend the tank above the bike and make a set of extension hoses to hook it up. But then I thought of making some vacuum taps to plug in line and take the measurements from there...wouldn't have to screw around with fuel and electric extensions to the tank

    Talked to a mechanic locally who said I didn't really need to balance the throttle bodies as the ECM would compensate.

    The dealer is 70 miles away so I'd rather not go thru that hassle..

    So if an injected bike to start with it will have everything in place IE fuel pump and ECU ...so you just want to balance the throttle body's?
    There should be vacuum take offs the at are blanked on the throttle body's that you can hook up vacuum gauges to.
    If not then remove the throttle body's and use three BBs to balance opening...or alternatively just use a feeler gauge or small metal rod and adjust in situe.

    Not sure about the ECU compensating for out of balance TBs as all it can do is adjust overall fueling from lambda feedback (if it has lambda) so i doubt it

    you can use tuneecu to balance, it’s a little delayed so takes some patience but it works. A remote fuel tank is the easiest way to run it but if you’re cheap like me you can just have the tank hooked up but out of the way.

    Good. I now have Tuneecu on my Android phone. Will see how I can juggle the tank around...I expect it will be a pain in the ass but maybe the bike will surprise me?!

    You can’t use a remote fuel tank unless it’s pumped as it needs pressure.
    I usually sit the tank where the seat would be and use a couple of bungees to hold it in place. The fuel lines and pump wiring just about reach. :grinning:

    Not sure quite how the ECU can compensate for throttle plate balance?
    unless injector pule width can be individually adjusted which would require wide band lambda on each cylinder exhaust...the throttle plate in that pic is mechanically adjusted so would need user input to adjust.

    Ahh yes can’t use a remote tank on that, sometimes my brain goes back to its childhood state before fuel injection

    Was thinking I could buy those special connectors to create extended fuel lines and run wires to make electric connections..It'd be expensive but anything with Triumph seems to be 3 times more expensive!

    Triumph sells extension gas lines and a fuel pump harness extension. The 3 pieces cost about $150 plus shipping. I'll only buy them if I have to.

    Yes, but how accurate is that?
