Downloading your TTP EFI Tune
You can download your TTP EFI Tune from the completion page when you order your tune, or there will be a download link for your tune on the emailed order receipt that you will receive in your email "Inbox". If you can't see an email order receipt from TTP in your "Inbox", please check the "Junk Mail" folder as it has been known for our order receipt emails to go in there.
Error Code When Activating A TTP Tune
Your TTP EFI tune is downloaded as a ZIP file. The files within the ZIP compression file will need to be extracted to a folder on your hard disk drive. When extracted to a folder, go to this folder and double click on the xxxxTTPxx.exe tune file. Once you have double clicked and opened this file, the TuneLoader software will open on the Licensing page. In the licensing page you will need to input your LicenseID and Password that came on your receipt email, the LicenseID and Password are just below the tune download link on this email. If you receive any "Error Code" when you try and activate your tune, something has gone wrong and you will need to contact TTP
with the error code for help.
Please make sure your bike battery is fully charged before starting this proccess, as a low battery can cause connection problems.
The number one problem with loading a any EFI tune on to a Triumph twin is a connection problem between the tune software and your bike's ECM. Sometimes it's an OBD-2 USB cable that isn't compatible with the Triumph system and other times it's a good cable, but the cable drivers haven't been installed correctly.
OBD-2 USB Cables
Through quite a few years of experience, we have found that a quality KKL VAG-COM 409.1 OBD-2 USB cable.(Search "KKL VAG-COM 409.1 OBD 2 cable" on Amazon, UK
) will eleviate connection problems if the software driver has been installed before the cable has been plugged in the USB port (see below).
Installing/Uninstalling OBD-2 USB Cable Drivers
If you have a good quality OBD-2 USB cable using the chipset mentioned above, the biggest problem is installing the correct drivers in the correct way. If you plug your OBD-2 USB cable straight in to your windows PC without installing the correct drivers, Windows will install a driver that doesn't work. This causes excess workload as you will need to remove the Windows installed driver completely, before installing the correct drivers. Please read one of the documents below that correspond to your Windows operating system to find out how to uninstall the drivers:
Once the OBD-2 USB drivers have been uninstalled, please use this driver to install before you plug the OBD-2 USB cable i to your PC.

Making The Software Connection
With a good cable and the cable drivers installed correctly, you are now ready to start the installation of your TTP EFI tune. Plug your cable in to the USB port on your PC and plug the other end in to the OBD-2 connector on your bike.
Now you're ready to open the TuneLoader software and then turn on your ignition. Do not start the engine. With TuneLoader open and your ignition turned on, you'll see a LED flashing in the bottom right hand corner of the TuneLoader software, this LED will be flashing red to start with, but after a few seconds will start flashing amber while it's trying to connect and once a successful connection has been made will turn to a flashing green LED.
After a couple of minutes of the LED flashing red and then amber, a warning box will come up stating that you can't get a connection, click the "Cancel" button to close the box and carry on waiting for the connection. The connection process can some times take up to 15 minutes before achieving a green flashing LED. If you don't get a green flashing LED after 15 minutes, turn off your ignition and close down TuneLoader and start again.
If you can't get a connection after three 15 minutes sessions, then this will indicate that the OBD-2 drivers aren't installed correctly and they will need to be uninstalled and then re-installed.
The "Reset Adaption" process is required after a new tune is loaded in to your bike's ECM. It's function is to reset the ECM's log files and calibrate the throttle position sensor to the new tune while idling the engine from cold and building up new data. If you don't carry out reset adaption after a new tune is downloaded to the ECM, your engine may be rough at idle and at low throttle, low revs running.
The first part of reset adaption is taken care of in step 5 of TuneLoader. When you press the "Reset" button, the adaption logs and the TPS are reset to factory defaults. The second part is to idle your engine from cold until the TPS LED illuminates on the "Monitor" page of TuneLoader. This usually takes around 20 minutes, after which you can turn off the ignition for 2 minutes, before starting your engine again. Now your bike is ready to ride.N.B. On some bikes the TPS indicator LED doesn't illuminate, but if your engine has idled from cold for 20 minutes, the reset adaption and TPS calibration will be complete, so just turn off your ignition.
It's worth mentioning here that if you idle your engine for 15-20 minutes in hot weather, there's a possibility the header pipes of your exhaust system will start bluing as the pipes get hotter. Some owners like the look of bluing, as this was normal with Triumph twins from days of old. If you don't like it, either place fans facing the header pipes throughout the process to keep them cooler or if that's not possible, you will be able to take them back to a polished finish with a good chrome cleaner and plenty of elbow grease.
*WARNING* - Never start the engine or let it run for any length of time in an enclosed area. The exhaust fumes are poisonous and may cause loss of consciousness or death within a short period of time. Always operate the engine in the open air or in a well ventilated area.
