  • Gettin Retarded...:coocoo

    Hey what's up everyone? Just wondering if anyone has the retard elimminator (T.R.E.) on their Tiller. How much of an improvement did it make? A local guy told me that it was too much and he took it off. Just wondering if it's a bad idea or not. Thanks a lot peoples..........late, late, later on!

    Yes try a TRE, but not that!

    Try a search of the Board, there is tons of TRE info here.

        you can use either. only the busa HAS to use the jsd-001

        get a jsd-002 or a jsd-002a. i got the jsd-002a because i wanted to be able to switch it on/off. since the tre forces the 5th gear map, it can cause stumbling when the bike is cold. it will improve throttle response in 1st-4th. i noticed a big difference ion my tls

            Cool, 35 bucks for some improved performance? Not too bad, but how does the mounting of the switch work? What's it look like? Where did you put yours? Thanks...

              I (looking down at the floor) bought one of those IVAN TRE's.
              It does work well, 2nd gear rocks now, and it DID lighten my wallet.
              You should see the way my bike falls into corners now.
              Thanks IVAN. (YEAH RIGHT!!!)

              TRE's do work wonderfully, but don't pay over $40.00 for it.

                on my tls i mounted the switch using the right radiator mounting bolt (mounts rad to frame). made a small 90 degree bracket to mount the switch in. i can take a pic tonight, but dont know if the rad mounts the same on a tiller

                    i have one and it did seem to make it a bit smoother and give it a bit more pull in the lower gears.
                    make sure your tps is adjusted right, for me that made an even bigger difference than the tre.
                    not sure why anyone would want a tre with a switch. its easy enough just to unplug it if you wanted to go back to stock, but i'm not sure why you'd want to...

                      Switchable TRE

                      I call it the wheelie mod. The 2nd gear retarder was terrible!!! Hows a man to do 2nd gear wheelies??!!

                        Switchable is the way.

                        When the bike is dead cold, trying to start it with the tre active is rough and requires alot of attention.

                        You can hit the switch and warm it up, and then hit it when the blood is boiling.

                            2nd gear bog gone with the resistor (15 cents), live in cold weather, ride in cold weather and have no troubles with starts or stumbles.

                              TRE

                              Less than a dollar, made the bike run much smoother. It is a little more cold natured but just adding a little choke for the first 30 seconds fixes that. Best thing it did for my bike was get rid of the stumble between 3k and 4k....
