Turning off the rear cylinder

Okay, at a stop you roll the throttle forward for a second or two. Rear cylinder is shut down. (Cruise Control light is amber)
If you let go of the throttle and the cruise control light goes out, is the rear still shut down? (No throttle given.)
If you roll the throttle forward again the cylinder is turned on again (Cruise Control light is green).

While doing all this I can not sence, hear, feel any engine change. Is the cylinder shut down ONLY when holding the throttle forward?

I believe that only enables/disables EITMS, aka parade-mode

When the light goes green you enable the EITMS, but the rear cylinder only sits down above a certain temp, you will know when it shuts down

exactly. you can not 'force' your bike into eitms. only enable/disable it. if it is enabled, there are certain parameters that must be met in order for it to go into eitms mode. if any of those parameters are not there, no eitms.

also, the parameters are different for the 2013 and below models as compared to the 2014 and up. look in your owners manual for eitms, it will explain it to you fully.

I don't have the EITMS on my bike anymore because the T-max tuner doesn't support it.
But from what I remember you have to roll the throttle forward and let the cruise light blink green 4 or 5 times to enable the EITMS and you have to roll the throttle forward and have the cruise light blink red 4 or 5 time to disable the EITMS. You can check and see if the EITMS is enabled/disabled by rolling the throttle forward for a second and the cruise light will be either green or red which will indicate the status of the EITMS.
When the EITMS is activated the rear cylinder will shut down when the front cylinder head temp reaches around 290 fahrenheit degrees and the bike is at a idle.

It's kinda like your cruise switch. It turns the system on but doesn't activate it. I don't remember the specific numbers but its something like this: Bike has to be in first or second gear, below 1200 rpm's and a certain temp. Then it activates itself and cuts the fuel off to the rear cylinder. If it activates, you'll know it. A little throttle to raise the rpm's will deactivate it.

The bike doesn't have the be in gear for the EITMS to work. The bike could be in neutral too, and as long as the EITMS is turned on and the front cylinder head temp is 290 Fahrenheit degrees or more and the engine is at a idle the rear cylinder will shut down.

the rushmore bikes have changed the parameters. it is no longer tied to front cylinder head temp, it is now ambient temp. i believe 80* is the threshold. many folks with the rushmore bikes have reported that the eitms seems to kick in way early......

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
