If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

Idle high? low? looping?

You need a power commander bro your bike is running rich
unburned fuel would cause backfires, pooping sounds

i figured if it was the exhaust it would of done it right after i got it on, not a month later.....

cant believe that i went through this down time and a new throttle body and its happening all over.....

also i have a question....why and how was it that with the new thorttle body it ran fine for a while and it acted like the problem was fixed?? that does the throttle body have to do with the bike running rich?

Cuz it's has to do with fuel enrichment. the more air the more fuel. But it takes some time for the computer to calibrate the minor change.
Quick temporary fix? new plugs. Get the power commander soon though cuz you'll end up going through another set of plugs quick.

Your old throttle bodies probably got so
clogged before and no matter what you
did you could not clean them ie had to
replace them

Fuel runs thru the throttle bodies
so having an extremley rich bike
will affect and harm your throttle
bodies

You got one of two options
PCIII or go back to a stock
exhaust



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

thanks a lot guys....I hope its just the PCIII that i need. Makes me sad knowing i replaced a throttle body that was problaby just fine though.....i didnt think of PCIII because almost everyone here says you dont need pcIII with a slipon....so i didnt think anything of it.....and for it to start the problem only after a month didnt lead me to think it was the exhaust....so hopefully now when i get a PcIII my bike will no long run like ****?
