GPS (Gray Connector) can be hard to separate. It has 2 latches. Pry down and keep one latch open using a small screwdriver as shown in the pic. This is the actual connector you will be working with.

Use your thumb to depress and hold the second latch, and pull HARD. It will come apart then.

Otherwise, WITHOUT using the screwdriver it is hard to depress both latches at the same time and seperate the connector.

Well the tre was a breeze took about 10 minutes, BUT while I was in there I decided to remove the secondary flies and on one of the flies the head od the screw completely broke off leaving the actual screw in the tap. The fly still came off just leaving the screw in the hole with the head gone...my ? Is, will it be ok to just leave it in there. It doesn't seem like it can go anywhere

Installing a TRE on my 08 this weekend hopefully. Damn mail and holiday weekend! How is it? Improved throttle response?

I haven't rode it yet, I have a pc3 coming next week so I'm just going to leave it apart until then...the hardest part about the install is getting the actual pins out of the plug you have to push them over and pull out at the same time...it hard to explain but if you have to force them out you are doing it wrong.

If that happened to me, I would get some wicking loc-tite, I think its the green one and put a drop or so on it and let it cure for about 24hrs.
Or you can take that part of the intake off and try and drill it out :dontknow:

A third hand makes this easy. One hand to hold the connector, a second to gently lift the pin (I used a small pick tool), a third hand to use small needle nose to gently pull the wire out. As you said no force is needed.

I bought a special tool from Snap On, only a few bucks, it inserts into the connector, lifts the latch and pushes out the terminal all at the same time.

Works amazing and nice to have around to work on bikes. I will post a pic and part # later.

Ivan's TRE eliminates the gear indicator for the 3rd Gen.

Yup, that's what happens with Ivan's.



What this guy said.
I've been considering installing the TRE but I want my gear indicator. Anyway to do this??

I read about the healtech and other options but it seems the others function differently as Ivan's mimicks neutral and others 5th or 6th gear which I understand is neutral is better. Also do the others disable KIMS? Any help is appreciated as I've been pulling my hair out over this debacle.

X-TRE from Healtech is the only one that retains gear indicator functions.

KIMS is practically a joke and doesn't really do anything. The activation band is so narrow on the thing, no one has ever reported that it's been activated. After 13k miles on mine, I never once felt it kick in. But to that point, none of them disable it directly.

Any clarification on why neutral or 6th gear is chosen??

The theory behind the TRE is that the fueling/ignition maps are gear-dependant. so if you trick the ECU into thinking it's in a gear that offers a more aggressive fueling/timing than the engine will produce more power all the time. Whether or not neutral vs. 6th (or 5th) offer more than the other is still open for discussion.

Frankly, you're not going to see a radical increase no matter which is used. Throttle responsiveness is the most noticeable change with either unit.
