Received my JSD-3M today. Did the install per instructions. Now I notice when in neutral my rpms are up about 200-300 more. I thought it would preserve neutral. Or did i install wrong?

Installed my -3M Monday. RPM 1100 in neutral & clutch out, 900 in neutral & clutch engaged.

The digital tach can be hard to read. I was reading it higher than actual when I first looked at it, even before the -3M install.

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. :D 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.

So its killing it (timing) with the clutch being pulled in? Must be a switch in clutch that turns it on off?

The bike in neutral and "clutch pulled in" are really two different things to the ECU.

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:
