NOTE from GRAM:  Kirk prepared these instructions for someone he sold his Rev Master to.  They are not complete instructions, and are meant to supplement the instructions that come with the Rev Master.  Due to the high quality of Kirks photos, and his good tips for how to get it done, we asked to reprint his instructions here.  Thanks Kirk!

The included photos and directions are supplementary to the manufacturers instructions and show routing of wires and assembly on the bike itself. This unit was installed on a 2002 Roadstar Silverado and located as per the directions available from the manufacturer originally. These have been included in the box being shipped to you with the unit.

Note the grey wire on the right side of the FUSE box. This wire uses a tap connector that you will find attached to the same color connector. Install the tap connector to the grey wire located on the two wire loom connection represented here in the next photo.

The black wire with the blue colored crimp connector is installed on the negative terminal of the battery. The remaining loom is connected as follows and shown in the attached photo.

Both the red and orange wire are connected to the left (kickstand) side of the bike on the one coil located on that side. The wires are colored matched and have the proper push on connectors for the original equipment connections. See attached photo for connections and order of these connections.

Photo 2.

The second photo above shows how the red wire is connected and what you might expect to see on the original installation. The red wire is installed on the outside of the coil connection (away from the frame) and should coincide with the coloring of the original wire.

The orange wire is connected to the inboard side of the left coil as shown in the above photo 2 and uses the same type of dual connector.

The grey wire is attached to the outboard side of the right coil as shown in the next photo

I enjoyed the reliability of the unit and not hitting the stock rev limiter in 1st and second gear. I recognize that the power band on these bikes is lower than the stock rev limiter set at 4200 RPM but we all know that by extending this to the 5000 RPM with the Revmaster you’ll definitely enjoy it more.

I had the following additional modifications to my bike prior to this unit being installed and loved the way it performed afterward the Revmaster was installed.
Hypercharger Pro
HK slip on exhaust system
Dynojet Jet kit
AIS removed

Ride safe, ride longer

Thanks for the additional info, the gray wire near the fuse box was a little difficult to locate. What a great improvement, this plus the new barnett pressure plate makes the bike truely come alive. Thanks to all, love the Clinic!!!!
