Obviously you can fine tune this setting to suit your own preference; also you should observe that if you are using this module in conjunction with our optional Ignition Interrupt Module the duration of the Shift Timer must be greater than the Interrupt timer setting.

This is because the Interrupt will now derive its power supply from the output of the Pulse Timer and therefore the Pulse Timer must be of sufficient duration to allow the Interrupt to complete its cycle.

Pulse Timer Module

To install the module you should try and locate it as close as possible to the Kliktronic Control Box ensuring that it is not exposed to the elements since the module is not completely waterproof. If the unit is likely to be exposed to excessive dust or moisture then we would recommend wrapping it in a protective plastic bag.

Once you have found a suitable location for the module you should firstly find a suitable earth point or negative battery connection and attach the thin black wire with the ring terminal connection. Then unplug the 4 pin switch connection from the control box and plug it into the Pulse Timer Module. The flying lead from the Module is then connected to the Control Box 4 Pin Connection as shown in the schematic diagram.

Then with the ignition turned on but without the engine running you can test the function of the Timer Module, turn the dial on the module to number 2 and press either the up or down shift buttons and hold it down you should see the green ‘PW’ light illuminate and the red ‘OUT’ light will illuminate briefly before extinguishing.

This indicates that the pulse timer is working correctly; you can then release the button and turn the ignition off.

You can now proceed to set up the timer interval to suit your particular gearbox. If you have a Japanese machine then the starting point should be between 1 & 2 on the adjustment dial. Some earlier Harley Davidson machines have heavier gearboxes which may require a longer duration of shift time, between 2 & 3 would be a better starting point in this case.

If your machine has a centre stand then the main adjustment can be carried out with the engine running on the stand, otherwise you will have to ride your machine and go up and down the gears as usual. Press the buttons to change up and down the gears as you would normally do on the road making sure that you hold down the button long enough for the ‘OUT’ button to complete its cycle.

Gradually reduce the timer duration until you start to miss gears and then turn the setting up by ½ of one increment. This setting should then ensure that you will get a consistent gearshift each time you press either button. Once you have found your optimum setting, a piece of tape over the dial will ensure that the dial does not move and will protect against ingress of dirt or water etc.
