  • switchable TRE

    OK I have seen all this hype about a switchable TRE. Is it really that much better than a standard TRE for starting the bike? :dunno I have the standard TRE and the bike starts a little hard. Now this winter i am going to take the scissors gears and auto decompress off the bike so it should be even harder to crank over. Is it worth making mine switchable? Little help
    No More TLR

    since installing it, i have tried starting it both on and off. with the tre off, it starts quite a bit easier when cold. mine was always pretty easy to start anyway. once the bike has warmed up, i just leave it switched on and never have any problems restarting it, it is just that 1st morning start that i turn it off for

    you could try unpluggin the tre (and reconnect the original plugs) and see how it starts. that would be the same as having it switched off.

        Idle

        I never had a problem with the starting with the standard TRE installed, but I didn't like how it messed with the neutral map. So, I installed the ATRE. I haven't had a chance to ride since it was installed, but it sure purs now at idle....

            They dont' make a switchable for the 97TLS do they? the wiring is different, I was thinkin about making one but will have to draw up a wiring diagram and figure out how to switch it on and off
            War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

              I had to put a switch on my IVAN's TRE. It was a bear to start with the TRE on.

                I have never had any problems starting just donīt put the choke lever all the way down cause then it will idle a bit high.
                Atleast mine does.

                    Well kevh if I put the choke lever all the way down it will start at 3500rpm and thats a bit high I think but itīs not a probleme.

                      I might be wrong, but here goes...I don't think you need one on a 97. I don't think the 97 came with the timing retarder on it...therefor it would be a waste of $.

                        Huh

                        Isn't the fast idle lever supposed to make it "idle a bit high"? That is until it's warmed up and you turn it off. If your's is at 3500 with the fast idle on, it may be time for an adjustment

                            yes it was off base. sorry, but the 97 tls does need the tre also. ok,,,, here goes.
                            originally they did not need the tre. later updates did include different ecu's ---which were retarded.

                            so, unless you got an original ecu, you will benefit from the tre mod.

                            now heres the poopy part. its hard to find a tre for our 97 tls's. we have only two wires and not three. and its a different connector set too. i got a set of connectors a while back, but didnt get to it this summer. winter project.....
