Rev limiter ?
« on: April 08, 2009, 11:55:21 AM »
I'm new here.  I have a question for the tech types.  Does the FL350R have a rpm limiter?  And if so, what rpm?

Rev limiter ?

Hello and welcome to the site. Feel free to ask all the questions you want. I have built alot of 350s over the last 15 years and have never hit any rev limits, and I like  my 350s to rev high! Pilots on the other hand I believe do have a rev limiter and have a longer stroke than a 350.

Barstow huh, I assume you have been to Dumont. I have been there several times and love that place.

I believe the FL350 does have a rev limiter but it only activates when in reverse...

Its been a while but I seem to recall that I had to disconnect it (wire at back of tranny) when I switched to a 102c drive clutch with higher engagement....

There are actually two wires at the back there 1 for Rev Limit and 1 for Neutral Start switch...  (I believe)

Gary or others correct me if wrong...

PS
I also seem to recall the FL400 rev forward limiter is somewhere around 7400 RPMs

Thanks Dennis, your right on the money as usual. If he needs pics of the 350 tranny switch in question and wires grounded, just ask.

Gentlemen, I believe you are correct.  The wiring diagram shows the "change switch" light green/red wire grounded in neutral, thus completeing the start circuit.  The other wire (gray) grounded in forward comes directly from the CDI unit.   It might be this establishes a rev limiter circuit in the CDI unit.  I have a spare CDI, so I'm going to do a little "inovative tinkering" and will post again.  Nuke Em':  haven't been to Dumont yet, but plan to.  I have multiple sclerosis, my feet don't work very well, so that's why I have a "Odyssey" (all hand controls).  Just bought it, bone stock, love it.

After a test ride:  I cut the gray wire that grounds the CDI in forward only, it ran crappy.  Hooked it back up and runs like a rocket.  So it has a rev limiter in neutral and reverse but not forward.
