After the install on mine: Idles too low on cold start-almost stalls. After 2 or 3 minutes idle is 900 in nuetral with clutch in/at least 1250-1350 with clutch out- races kind of high. At operating temp idle drops to the 900 w/clutch in and 1100 w/clutch out in nuetral. Not quite sure if I should live with it/troubleshoot it/remove mod? Does this sound like how it should be?
yup me 2 900 with clutch pulled in & 1100 with it released. Does'nt bother me if thats all that it causes, because it runs much better to me. I also noticed it shifts somewhat smoother & gets better mileage per tank :bigthumbsup:It must help the tranny find the next gear easier, since the increased RPM is higher when the throttle is released. I'll go with & ride like the wind! :doorag:
I installed the mod and it's working, it idles at 900 clutch in and about 1050 with the clutch out. Which is right considering you're killing the timing retard. Great cheap mod. I'm enjoying every minute of it.
i installed mine and took an hour ride today,its only got 300 miles on it but what a difference ,,,yes the idle kicked up a bit but who sits there and lets the bikd idle all day with the clutch outÂ Â and howÂ many stop at a red light with the clutch outÂ ,,, daaaa come one guys !!! this is an awsome mod though its not perfect,,its freckin 49.00 bucks !!! well worth the mismle idle thing,, i love the smoother shifts, and havin my arms pulled out of thier sockets with revs in every gear !!! kinda reminds me of the ole bandit 1200s feeling i thought i was gonna miss so much, but im never lookin backÂ just foward as this thing i a hoot ,,great job jsdÂ :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup: :bigthumbsup:
I don't know about the whole "arms being pulled out my sockets". Yes it smooths out the revs and lets us get to a little more HP down low, but the way everyone is talking you'd think this was a turbo or something. Definitely idles too high IN NEUTRAL AT LIGHTS. I get quite a few of those (red lights)and so it is noticible. Enough so that people have asked why it idles so high. Can't beat the bang for the buck, no question, but I don't think it could ever possibly live up to the hype.
you must have the slower 'silver' one then because everyone knows the black-bird rocks with this mod :joke:,, all kiding aside mine does jump about 100 rpms with clutch out and in neut,,and drops back to 900 with clutch in maybe mine is not as bad as most because in can live with that,,,,i did take a dremal and grind the paint off behind that little gold screw,, spent 6 years in the service as a electronics tech and a bad ground can cause some pretty wierd stuff so i made dam sure i hit nothin but steel !!! :bigthumbsup:
