Question about TRE?

I just bought a new 18 xt 1000 strom and I've been reading about the TRE ( Timing Retard Eliminator). My question does it help? Also I keep reading that it turns off in neutral so the idle stays up. What if I stop at a traffic do I have to shift in neutral? Do I really need this thing? Any help would be appreciated...

No you do not absolutely need it. There is a lot about TREs here on Stromtrooper and VSRI. Try teh search function for the most complete information. Or Google Stromtrooper TRE or VSRI TRE.

Also many kits out there to remove it. Most of the cheap fixes disable gear shift indication. However, at least one kit preserves the shift indication.

I've searched and looked and all I can really find is on older models.. I thought Suzuki might have changed something on the 18 model..

What causes you to consider adding it to your new bike?

SW Motech guards for R. brake reservoir, R. brake cylinder, exhaust pipe valve. Aprilia Tuono mirrors. GPR exhaust slip-on.

C'mon, nobody wants to feel like they're missing out on a good modification. Nothing wrong with that, especially when you hear it eases the low RPM edginess, ever-present in Suzuki V-twin injection programming.

Here is a link for the latest units that I have used.

I have used the healtech units on my 2014 & 16 and they work as advertised.

It just doesn't feel right down low, like it doesn't have any power until it's 3500 rpm's.. I live in the mountains and ride super curvey roads, when I enter a curve I let off the gas and exiting the curve when I get back on the gas there's a jerk to its just not smooth.. I have a 16t front sprocket on order that might help it I'm not sure... In my search I saw the TRE but the idle part had me worried, will it idle if I just pull the clutch in or do I have to shift to neutral?

Any chance you remember which wire is the right one?
