Re: Plug and Play Smart (aTRE) for '03-'09 SV650

Got my aTRE at the 10 day mark (which is pretty darn quick considering it is hand-made and had to ship from East Coast to California)! Nice, clean packaging, quality product!
Took me about 15 minutes to install (including 5 minutes to find a way to prop up my tank without the "included" prop). Honestly, it was an incredibly easy process, especially for someone who sarcastically calls themselves a Mechanic when they successful tighten a bolt.

Went for a ~90 minute ride after. I'd say that the aTRE did exactly what it is supposed to: A subtle smoothing of low-speed, low-gear riding. The herky-jerkiness was slightly reduced. I did NOT check/adjust the TPS while I had the tank up as I was eager to feel the difference of the 2 mods independently. I'll do the TPS in the next week or two.

Overall, I'm very pleased! Thanks again, Steve.

If anyone is on the fence about spending the 35 bucks --- just go for it. There's really no reason not to (unless you are heck-bent on making this a total DIY project). I was initially slightly concerned after reading others' feedback that engine braking will be reduced too much, but it actually feels more linear, and less abrupt, which is nice. 5-stars, A-plus, would-come-back, etc.

Also, I'm not gonna lie: taking the seat off and lifting the tank for the first time made me feel like a ....... wait for it ..... like a MECHANIC.

I hope he is. Just makes it easier to order from him. I guess I'll just wait for a message from him. Thanks!

Re: Plug and Play Smart (aTRE) for '03-'09 SV650

Hey Everyone! Been quite a while since I have been on the forums but this season marks 10 years for Steve TRE. I am still making them but I sell them exclusively on Etsy now since its just easier to manage it all.

This may be the last year for my TRE production. Life changes a lot in 10 years. My SV is long gone and I am on to other hobbies and ways to spend my time.

For now you can find my TRE here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/stevestre

Thanks and Ride Safe!
-Steve
