HELP!!!!So heres my dilema,I have an 06ZX10R and it runs great with only 2k on the odometer but....I feel like if I get the TRE thing "$35 bucks on ebay" I might be even happier with the way it would run.Problem is its still under warranty:1848: and Im not sure if it could damage anything:dontknow: .And really,whats the big difference I'd get from having one?:dontknow: Im calling all riders to respond to this and make sure you've got some real experience with this first hand.It'd be nice to hear from someone who's been riding around for awhile with this mod.Make sure you include the good as well as the bad stories with this one.Im trying to keep this beast for awhile.Dont forget to vote!And thanx 4yer support!:rockwoot:

I installed mine with 3000k on my new 07. I havent had any problems yet. pulls hard at the lower RPM's. As long as you get a good one and install it correctly you should have no problems.
I now have 5000k on my bike and no issues yet.

Definitely good.

When you first install it you'll think you're starting out in second but you'll adjust.

Got the GI Pro w/ ATRE here.
This unit has 4 settings. I have mine on positon one. Turned it off before while riding thru the same hard twisties. Could feel more grunt with TRE on.
And don't think you're gonna build more horsepower with a TRE. That's not its function. But I might get you more horsepower a little quicker.

Also my bike has been mapped since the install. I a big believer on mapping. Even a stock machine. TRE shouldn't effect a map, but my instructions suggested that it be mapped in favorite position.

If you are considering a gear indicator too. This unit is the way to go. Don't go Acumen. Been there done that too!

Almost forgot. Be careful of the B.S. Ebay TRE copies. Look on here for the on site sponser and you'll get something that really works.

Here's to good fun & more good times.

I bought one and sold it. Just did a lot of reading and it seemed like it didn't help too much on the street but on the track it's very noticeable. Figured it wasn't right for me but never installed it.

Sorry to threadjack but just wanted to throw my opinion in.

There are very conflicting answers...some say it does some say it doesn't but the poll right now shows most think it's a big help.

not sure if there was any real difference on my 04. I did not adjust sub throttle sensor or any idle screws. No change noticed.

Not a bad experience, no experience at all I guess.

me and my buddies said the hell with the tre and they picked up the drop in cam and had it mapped properly I had a tre on my last bike and all it id was just trick the gear indicater allowing a little more spark and fuel to go threw which helped on decel but hey your on a 10 with a slipper clutch
