TRE mod = Must Do!

I just completed the TRE MOD, maybe 10 minutes start to finish including tool prep. Once again, a MUST DO. I can feel the difference, and hear the difference.

Some here have mentioned the increase in MPG, but I can tell you that my bike feels stronger in 2nd & 3rd in the mid range. It goes through the RPMs in the formerly affected range much quicker. Also, on deceleration you can hear a lower (rumble) exhaust note.

Call me crazy, but this is the first mod I would do to a first generation SV.

I remember one guy on here getting beat up because he said he felt the gain on top. Well, we all know that the upper rpm range is not affected. However if you pull through the mid in 2nd & 3rd gear quicker (and you do!) then it will feel that the top is stronger (although it is not).

I agree with Strick, I've got an '03 and in addition to the above, the jerks and hesitation that I used to get when closing the throttle in first and second has disappeared.

I don't know if anyone is offering the four-pin connectors found on the SV650 but you can get the three-pin connectors from Jeff Wallace at http://www.jsdproducts.com/Products/...jsd-1_kit.html. I bought two of these kits and used one of them simply to replace the factory connectors- you can just extract the male & female pins from their respective locations and re-install in the new connectors. The only thing different is the plastic housings - no soldering, no fuss, no muss. Then I built the TRE and plugged it in nice & neat. I even used the blind plugs from the four-pin block to plug the 2 blind holes in my new TRE. Secure, water-resistant, professional looking, and easily removeable in case a trip to the dealership is necessary.

The only bad thing is that Jeff doesn't sell his kit with the proper resistor for the SV650, but I picked up a high-quality metal film resistor - 15K Ohm 1/4 Watt 1% Tol. - for 15.

No matter how you accomplish it, this mod is worth your time and trouble.

TRE mod = Must Do!

Guys, do a search for TRE!!!!

I know the search engine in this site is not that great, but I found tons of relevant hits the first time I tried. Here are some (and no, I haven't done that mod):

How to do it...
http://www.svrider.com/tips/retard.htm

http://www.sv650.org/ig_retard/ignition_mod.htm

A different way to do it (weegaz22, the Scottish guy's site)
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/junej.h...gnitretmod.htm

In a 03-04
http://www.sv4me.com/tre.html


Ignition Advance info from Suzuki Canada
http://www.svrider.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=21498

It doesn't make any difference in the dyno?
http://www.svrider.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=14674

Racers' opinion
http://www.svrider.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=17338

Bottom line, IIRC no one has ever posted here two dyno graphs showing a real difference after the mod. But plenty of people has done it and report a very small difference, and mostly no problems.

Whoever wants to do the mod, and have the money for two dyno runs "before and after", please post results.
