      Q: How do I install lowering bones, to drop the ride hieght of my bike?
      A: LOWERING BONES INSTALL- detailed pics

      Q: What is a TRE, JSD-3M, or GI-Pro?
      A: All 3 of these are essentially the same. TRE stands for Timing Retard Eliminator. These are plug and play items, and are very easy to install. These will make the throttle response less choppy, and will move the rev limiter in 5th gear from 6500 rpm, to 7400 rpm. The GI-Pro is the only TRE with a gear indicator, that can be mounted on your bike, to show you what gear you are in. These devices trick the bike into thinking it is in 4th gear, while you are in 1st,2nd,and 3rd, thus eliminating the timing normally retarded in these gears. You can also make you own.

      Q: My bike is acting like it's not getting fuel. (AKA "limp mode")
      A:*ATTENTION*Anyone having this problem, CHECK YOUR CABLES FOR YOUR S.E.T. VALVE!! It has been brought to my attention, that this may be the cause for your issues. If you are running a stock exhaust, make sure the cables are the same tension. You can adjust these on both sides of the cables. If you do not have stock exhaust, pull your SET wire from the ECU.

      I believe this issue is the SET is out of adjustment, and/or the SET cam is bad. If either of these things happen, it will put you into limp mode (according to the manual, you may or may not get a FI light!). SO, if you are in limp mode, you will know because when you shut bike off and back on, and it runs fine, but then does it again shortly afterward. Limp mode is designed to put the bike in a "safe zone" so no further damage can be done. I truly believe this will fix your problem.

      Once you have checked these... Put your "special tool" back into the connector, then with the cut off switch turned "ON", TURN THE KEY ON AND OFF 3 TIMES. THIS WILL CLEAR THE CODES FROM THE ECM! Problem solved!




      Q: How do fix the clutch sleeve hub nut?
      A: Loose clutch nut repair by Listan1

      Q: Will rain effect my after market intakes, or Ducks mod?
      A: NO!!! Take a shop vac hose, stick it out the window one day when it is raining. The amount of water you will suck up will be very minimal, if any, and that has way more suction than these intakes. Look here if you need more peace of mind than just my word:
      Q: When running a rear tire on the front of my bike (160/60/R18 etc.), do I have to run the tire in reverse?
      A: Yes! The tire should be mounted in reverse! (directional arrow, tracking the OPPOSITE way) This quote is right off the Metzler web-site:
      Rear tires can be mounted at front wheels?
      When producing tires, the top cap is heated with an angle bump on the carcass. To prevent the detachment of the assembled edges the tire has to be mounted (concerning the main stress: acceleration force at the rear wheel or wheel brake force at the front) corresponding to the respective declaration.
      Therefore the declaration of the driving direction at the tires sidewall is a very important safety regard and has to be noticed absolute. It is not allowed to mount front tires at rear wheels.
      In case you intend to mount a rear tire on a front wheel it has to be assembled contrary to the driving direction declaration (direction of the arrow at the tires sidewall). Please observe the standards in your country. In any doubts we kindly ask you to consult your dealer.

      Q: How do I remove the stock air boxes?
      A: 2 allen head screws... Pull.

    Sooooo, if you istall a TRE without the gear indicator you have to be able to count to 5 and have a good memory yes? I am getting one so it would be a good idea to get one with a gear indicator........

    also the link on how to build your own is not functioning http://www.m109riders.com/forums/sho...ome+built+atre

    You don't need to build your own when you can buy a fully tested unit using modern surface mount technology available from one of you fellow members for a special price of $30 delivered.

    I've just read through this, and the other FAQs thread and many of the answers look like they should link to another page
    e.g.
    Do I not have enough privileges to see the links, or are they non existent? These FAQs seem to be a valuable resource for new Boulevard owners but are less so because of the missing info.

    Yes I have a C, but clutch replacement was not the point of my question. It was the lack of links or piccies in various posts. I just used that one as an example. Thanks for trying anyway.

    I have all of them in electronic version but they are lots of megs so too big to upload . if you need something in particular I can try to upload it for you. The links you are looking at date back to when we first moved to this forum when we had a falling out with the strict rules on the then Yankee site so I dragged all that info across with us but we have moved site again since then and I think the yanks have as well so links are possibly useless now

    Fair enough, I was just wondering if I was missing something.
