So after reading about the green wire mod (especially a lot today) i decided to do it on my bike, i know, without a cam its pointless, but I'm getting the HRC kit soon so i decided to do it in some free time i had. I did a little modification and came up with my own version of this mod.So here it is!



1. open up your hood, front left side plastic (you can do it on the right side as well but i did on the left so that there was no chance of the wires getting burned by the pipe), back plastic

2. cut the green wire on the most left plug and place 2 connectors on it (you can also solder the wires directly to it), make sure the wires you use are long enough to reach to the little compartment under the seat



3.run the wires by the upper frame rail (so that they wont get damaged by your knees) all the way to the back







4. make a hole in the back plastic where you want the switch to be and place it there
5. connect the wires to it so that when its ON, the green wire mod is turned OFF, when the switch is OFF, the green wire mod is put into effect
6. split both of the wires and place some type of connectors on them so that you can quickly unattach them when removing the back plastic





7. go out and ride and enjoy your uncorked R!!!

IMO i think there could be a better place for the switch.

Maybe under the seat or somewhere that a object or something is not going to slap that switch.

Even under the hood. It would reduce the amount of wiring, and make a much cleaner look.

Great Idea BTW

Not sure what the effects on the CDI or bike it would have while switching the Rev limit while riding.

Dynatec or Vortec has it on their YFZ CDI. Two seperate curves wired into one handlebar mounted switch. The theory is, to use the bottom end curve for launching and switch to top end curve when after you launch. This can be done while the bike is going and under a load.

I would imagine since the green wire mod only changes the rev limit, not the curve, it would be just fine to switch while riding.

I have a toggle on mine, right on the shroud under the left side of the bars. Oh **** ya you can tell a difference!!! I was switching it back and forth down the road, its awesome. even when the bike is just idling you can hear the pitch change when you flip the switch.. I don't care if you have a stock cam, green wire mod is a must on 06+.... Make sure you don't forget thatthe ON label on the switch means the green wire is like stock, I made the mistake of hauling ass thinking it was on stock setting and flipping it... Tires locked up, hit the rev limiter harder than ever before, and all kinds of scary other stuff lol

oh ya, kippo clipping the green wire does change the curve, it advances the timing. I figured you'd know that already....

The green wire mod is absolutely worthless WITH an aftermarket cdi box because the the box is a set rpm limit and timing curve and you can't change it with the green wire like the factory cdi is capable of

i did a similar green wire mod on my 05. mine is attached to my hotstart lever though. when im riding across the dunes, pinned in fifth, i can push the lever and it will straight up rip the front tires off the ground when the new curve is selected. seriously.

greg, have you dynoed your machine with nitrous? with and without the green mod?

i wonder if that or one of the other methods of forced induction would be when the stock curve would be beneficial?

going back to muscle cars, my msd box has a selectable retard for nitrous and such.
