I can't stand the jerkiness anymore

I pulled my Ivan's TRE off to see how much of a diff it makes on my mileage, got one tank out of it last Saturday on a ride and got a few more miles before the light started blinking. I lasted 1 week before I just can't stand the fricken jerk anymore and I'm putting my TRE back in. I don't even care about the mileage anymore, the TRE makes such a difference in rideability it's going back on. How anyone can ride this bike without one ????

I know my 10 is jerky but the TRE makes it smoother?

I noticed the Power Commander made a big difference. The TRE didn't do much excpet improve low end power, not so much feel.

Did you get the TRE before the PC or vise versa ?

That's why you don't notice a difference with it except when the secondaries open sooner (low end). If you wanna see how much of a difference it makes pull the PC and just run the TRE...it's a pretty big difference in overall smoothness and rideability.

I'm in the middle of installing a TRE and PCIII - I have the same complaint - I'll let you know how it goes.

Maybe I'm just a being an asshole but my smoothness comes from my right hand!!!!!!!!! I really didn't notice a difference with or without the TRE when it comes to smoothness. I took mine out because it messed with my idle and I didn't want to fudge around with it.
