I have an 05 ZX10 and my winter project includes the installation of a TRE it doesnt have the gear indicator with it. I went to install it and honestly it looks like it is going to be a pain in the a$$. I was wondering if doing this mod is worth all of the trouble of getting to it. I have already installed a PC3 that i would be using in conjunction with the TRE. Thanks in advance...

Yes, installation is not that hard just have to remove a couple wires and plug them into the supplied harness. I love the gear indicator personally and for the $$$ I think its a worth while mod.

Alright thanks for the advice because if the mod wasnt really going to be worth the trouble then i was going to drop it from the list of things to do and sell it.

install isnt that bad dude!..it is worth it due to the fact that it will smooth out the choppy throttle on the gen1 10R........makes corner entry/exit a lil less abrupt!

The fuel cutoff isnt all that important to me except for when I go on trips. I go to Deals Gap a couple of times a year and that probably make that road a little less scary with it being a little more predictable. I might add it for the plain and simple fact that I already have it. Not to jump around but should I look into the Riflemans 1/5 mod for the throttle?

Thanks a great deal you all. I'll have to look into what all is involved in the 1/5 mod. No idea what it is or really what it does but I have heard of it.

install is not bad on the 1/5th either!........and all it does is open throttle on a quicker roll,.......but it does feel like you added about 15 hp!.haha....I love mine!..and people cant believe it when I tell em to go over and throw my throttle wide open(bike not running)...haha....they think it is insane!!!....no more chopping the throttle to get her up in the air!!.haha..just a flick of the wrist,......and up she comes!..cover that rear brake!!

I just searched the 1/5th mod and the only question I have now is where to get it at?

I bought a TRE from a member here but only because it had a GI built in.
I haven't even tested the TRE settings yet, I run it on neutral setting.
I love the 1/5th throttle mod though. All you need to do is drill out the pieces protruding from the inside of the throttle housing and then cut the lock nut on the throttle cable under the airbox so you can get max adjustment cause if not you wont have any free play in the throttle.
