We found 8hp difference between the 2nd and 3rd setting on ours,#2 being better. I don't know what the standard is set up as. Call them and see what you have,or what number setting it is like.

well on todds site he has an conclusion on this situation..and claims that the adjustable cdi on the 2nd setting is the same as the non adjustable cdi..and if i read it correctly he says that you cant use it because of too much timing...the second setting that is??so basically i cant use my basic cdi because it is the same as a adjustable on the second notch on my soon to be 840....todd has an write up on his site that is rather helpful but maybe i got confused about the circumstances.

A week ago I would have said it was too much timing,but that isn't what the dyno said. I made John go back and forth 2 time to check it back to back.

The non-programmable CDI and #2 on the programmable are the same curve

the programmable cdi and non do run the same curve. the number 2 curve is pretty good, but you peak to quickly. we ran my prog. cdi with a slightly modified #2 against my father in laws with the non. prog. curve and it was noticable on the low end. i was able to pull 2 bike lenghts on the low end and then when timing maxed out, we ran at the same 2 bike lenghts difference.

Add a little more timing at the bottom or for the 2 length gain?
