This is a do at your own risk mod, i don't want to be held responsible for any problems occurred while doing this mod, although you shouldnt run into any. This is a pretty easy mod to do. First, start by pulling off the front cover to access the battery compartment. Start by removing the rack and rack supports. Its needed to remove those pieces to remove the front cover. 2 plastic pop rivets and a snap in the front hold the panel down. Once all that is removed, its easy to get access to everything. With the battery bar removed, remove the 2 philip head screws holding down the EPS control unit. Room is tight, and not much slack on wires, but you need to move this out of the way. Be careful not to pull on wires too much, don't need to be pulling anything loose. After the EPS unit is removed, you will see the ECU. Disconnect the ECU. On the wiring harness you will see a yellow\white striped wire. This is the one that needs to be grounded. I pulled the wire out of the connector, using a paper clip pushing the pin out, snipped the pin off, then soldered on some 18 gauge wire, enough to reach the neg of the battery. Now start putting everything back together. I took a ring connector and crimped it onto the wire, and put it under the screw holding the ground cable down, and it works great. To access the POD settings, heres the directions:
1. Key in the off position, Hold "Select" & "Reset" at the same time. While holding them down turn the key on. The "d IAG" screen will pop up in 5-10 seconds.
2. Press the Select button to get it to the "Co" screen.
3. Hold "Select" & "Reset" again until the "C1" screen pops up. You should see a big "0" in the top of the screen too.
4. Hold "Select" & "Reset" again until the C1 setting pops up at the lower right hand side of the screen.
5. Press "Select" to raise the number and press "Reset" to lower the number.
6. Turn the key off to reset to the new settings.
7. Restart Quad
While in the C1 screen, you can start the quad and the 0 will go up, 3 digits, this is the built in tach, add a zero and thats the RPM. It only reads rpm up to 2,000. This is mainly to set the idle RPM, which should be around 1600, just under clutch engagement.
Some say this mod only effects the first 1/3 of throttle. I noticed a big difference in bottom end, idle, and throttle response. Im currently set at 35, but it takes some testing to figure out what works best for you in your environment. I think its worth it, its free and i noticed a difference.
