How to stop your Harley engine overheating in traffic – What is Harley EITMS – Here I discuss the Harley engine and how it can overheat in hotter temperatures whilst in stationary traffic. I also talk about how Harley have a solution to assist the cooling of the engine and it is through the Engine Idle Temperature Management System – EITMS
The following is the basic criteria for it to automatically shut down or re engage if EITMS is enabled:
EITMS will activate (rear cylinder will turn off) when all of the following condition are met:
Engine temperature is greater than 287°F domestic 165°C international
Twist grip opening is at idle
Vehicle speed under 1 mph 2 km/h Engine speed under 1200 RPM
EITMS will disable (rear cylinder will again fire) if any one of the following occurs:
Engine temperature falls below 275°F domestic 135°C international
Twist grip opening is greater than idle
Vehicle speed exceeds 2 mph 3 km/h Engine speed exceeds 1350 RPM
Clutch is released with vehicle in gear
The ambient temperature is generally considered needs to be 80degF for it to activate.
To enable it, you roll the throttle into the off position and hold it there for a few seconds and wait for the cruise indicator lamp to flash green…to enable or flash orange…to disable.
