The Engine Idle Temperature Management System (EITMS) can provide limited cooling of the rear cylinder for riders who frequently find themselves in prolonged idle conditions or traffic congestion. Riders can enable or disable EITMS to complement their riding style.
EITMS will not operate within the first 30 seconds after starting the engine.
EITMS will turn off the rear cylinder fuel injector when all of the following preset parameters are met:
  • Throttle position is at idle
  • Motorcycle speed is under 1.2 mph (2 km/h)
  • Engine speed is under 1200 RPM
  • Engine Temperature (ET) sensor input reading is above preset level
  • Ambient Air Temperature (AAT) sensor reading is above preset level (radio equipped models only)
EITMS will deactivate and the rear cylinder fuel injector will resume operation if any one of the following conditions occur:
  • Ambient Air Temperature (AAT) sensor reading drops below preset levels (radio equipped models only)
  • Engine Temperature (ET) sensor reading drops below preset level
  • Throttle position is above idle (rider rolls throttle)
  • Motorcycle speed exceeds 1.9 mph (3 km/h)
  • Engine speed exceeds 1350 RPM
  • The clutch is released with the motorcycle in gear
Enabling / Disabling EITMS
  • EITMS can be enabled or disabled with the engine running or shut off.
  • On vehicles equipped with radios, the EITMS activation and enabled / disabled can be viewed in the Information Screen.
Enabled: The EITMS engine cooling feature automatically activates whenever the vehicle comes to a complete stop and is idling during elevated temperature conditions. When the feature is enabled, it may not activate under cool riding conditions.
Disabled: The EITMS feature is not active under any conditions.
EITMS can be enabled or disabled by performing the following procedure.
  1. Turn ignition switch ON. Push the engine OFF/RUN switch on the right handlebar to the RUN position.
  2. Push the throttle to roll-off position and hold.
    1. Flashing green indicates EITMS is enabled.
    2. Flashing amber indicates that EITMS is disabled.
  3. Repeat the procedure to enable or disable EITMS.
  • A flashing cruise lamp indicates the EITMS setting. A solid (non-flashing) lamp indicates the cruise control setting.
  • The EITMS setting remains in effect until it is changed by the rider or dealer. There is no need to reconfigure EITMS at each startup.
