I disabled EGCV....wtf?
So, I might be going crazy, but I went to search again for threads about the EGCV, and found none of the ones I was looking at before I did it. So sorry if this has all be said somewhere else.
Anyways, I've got an '08, and I did the whole thing. I did unplug the servo motor (with FI light now) and instead of safety wiring or otherwise fixing the valve I just rotated the pulley/spring assembly so it hooks on a different tab and rests in the open position. Anyways, there's a lot more noises than before, it cold idles at more like 2300 rpm than the usual 2000, and now most concerning is if I get on it at manly rpms and shift, when I hit the next gear it lags as bad as when you miss into neutral and do the lean-forward thing while not going anywhere :rolleyes:--It's not one of those subjective "omg throttle response 11!11" things over something like an air filter or whatever, it is that bad--and seriously I looked to see if I accidentally hit neutral by reaction (even though I was going from 3rd to 4th).
So, did I miss that you need a retune after disabling the valve, or is having the servo motor unplugged confusing the hell out of the ECU, or is this some BS I shouldn't have done to the bike? It definitely doesn't like it, it doesn't feel or sound like my baby anymore and I'm worried about A/F ratios at the very least.
