I saw this mod on the yahoo site....and did not do it because the information was a little unclear. I saw it here in this format and i went out and did the mod in about 3mins and 1:00 AM

Cool...

Thanks monza, you did an excellent job and anyone should have no problem understanding how to do this mod.

An alternative method would be to remove the connector and make a little jumper wire with two spade ends, which fit into the connector block. Then just leave the block dangling. This way no wires are cut and you can experiment with which way you like better, or if you are going to pour questionable gas into your machine.

FWIW, I've never removed the jumper except to let a friend try it out on his Bajaj, so cutting's probably not a bad thing!

Just a note to anyone who's thinking about doing this - I did a really gangster version of this a couple of summers ago. I made a jumper out of some 20 gauge wire so that I could remove it if I didn't like it. And I didn't like it, so it did get removed.

My point is...if you're going to do this mod, do it right as monza described, or make a good jumper QAScooter has. Don't make a ghetto one out of some leftover wire like it did. Embarassed

J: Why should it matter? A jumper should be a jumper. Basically, you're just creating a short. I would think that a temp, "ghetto" rig would be initially preferable to anyone cutting the wires. IMHO, a paperclip or whatever (isn't that what was shown in the Yahoo mod pics?) is a decent "test" before cutting and soldering.

Perhaps, but I got the feeling that my results would have been different if I had made a more secure connection. I just kind of shoved a loop of wire in there and took off for the day. My results were drastically different from what had been posted on the yahoo board.

Post TRICS MOD Reply with quote
Well, I did my TRIC mod yesterday but, I did it differently. Instead of cutting wires and splicing them together which is a valid way to do the mod, I removed the 2 mirrors and the 4 screws that hold the speedo housing halves together and seperated the housing to make the handle bars accessible. On the throttle handle bar their is a black plastic sleeve that is held on by a quick release clip. On that sleeve is a tab that sticks up and blocks the electronic eye when you rotate the throttle about half way and continues till full throttle. I removed the quick release clip and removed the throttle cable sleeve so I could slide the handle bar out enough to remove the black plastic sleeve. Then I reassembled the throttle cable sleeve back on the handle bar and assembled the housing halves back together and there you have it, no more TRICS. The eye can no longer be blocked and the timing is free to advance as needed. The reason I did it this way is so that I can always reinstall the sleeve in case I need to make a warranty claim and the dealer would never know the difference. The whole process took about 30 minutes to complete. It is very easy and self explanitory for anyone with even minimal mechanical skills. The hardest part is removing the headlight ring and unscrewing the speedo cable to seperate the to halves. Cool

I have my results - with no other mods - i did the tric mod. I notice a little bit more power - it seems to continue to push where it would normally lug if I switched gears too quickly - also my former max speed what 55 on the dot. - now it is about 57.

I won't know my actual results until I get more miles on it. It is new and I don't want to push it to much yet, but the acceleration seems to be a little better after the mod.

I have done mine TRICS bypass, very sure the same way that both you and Argousa website has done, but since then the motor has loud flapping vibrating sound from the engine side in every gear. Not sure what happen? any syggestions?

I noticed a loudish "growly" type of sound when I did the paperclip jumper method last year (some of you may remember me posting about it on Yahoo). I figured something was wrong, took the clip out and things sounded "normal" again. I was going to look into things more this season at some point. I figured that me jamming a paperclip into the CDI connector might have been catching some current from another wire or something (I kinda really pushed the thing in there Twisted Evil ). When I posted about it on Yahoo, someone else posted similar not-liking-it feelings but I don't remember who it was (maybe J!?).

I probably was me, because I tried it with the same degree of high-end engineering you did and got the same result. ;)

i've tried the TRICs mod on my stock chetak, with the hrs pipe, a uni filter and a larger idle jet, and many combinations thereof. While each time it allows the bike to rev higher and add a few mph to the top speed, it does so to the detriment of low end torque. Here in hilly san diego, i'm doing so much hill climbing in busy traffic that i just can't afford to lose 5-7mph on uphills. for me, the TRICS mod just wasn't worth it.

has anyone else noticed this?

I made preparations to do tmille53's version of the mod and had a hard time when it hit me Idea

So I just unscrewed and flipped the sensor.

If my trial without TRICS is okay I'll leave it otherwise I just flip it back.

Synchro-
Are you talking in the handle bar column? Could you explain a bit more, or do you have any pics?

Here's a question- what are the benefits of keeping the thing installed? I was thinking that if I ever had to gas up at home from the lawnmower gascan, having the bike more able to handle so-so fuel might be a good thing.

The sensor for TRICS is located under the handlebar cover on the throttle side.

As the throttle is rotated a tab on the throttle shaft rotates up into the sensor blocking the sensor.

The sensor is mounted with two screws.

Remove the screws, turn the sensor 90 degrees and secure with the screws.

Make sure the wires do not pinch or interfere with anything.

Now the sensor is never blocked. This can be reversed at anytime.

Here is a PDF of the sensor mod I have done.

Let me know if it is helpful or needs any corrections.

WTH happened to the first post of this thread, in which Monza explained how to do the mod in detail, with photos?

Awesome. This is exactly the type of thing we're trying to encourage and accumulate with this board. Thanks!

Recently looked at a house at the top of Dictionary Hill in Spring Valley. Is this area safe? Have you tried riding your Chetak up Ramona Ave?
