Low Idle

I had the Xbow swept exhaust, high flow filter, and tune done about a month ago. Bike sounds great and runs strong. I am still noticing a little popping, and when I am slowing to a light the idle seems to drop between 850-900. This is prob normal but it almost feels like the bike has died. Does this seem normal? The pipes have no baffles I had them remove before the tune. Thanks!

The bike only has 2000 miles on it. Would that be necessary at this point? Thanks guys!

There should be an idle adjustment screw to fix that. Too early to clean T-Bodies. Plus the 08 and newer shouldn't need it any more often than air filter maintenance.

On my 04 Kingpin it's just under the tank and accessible from the left side. Kinda hard to see with the tank on but with the tank off it's obvious.

You might check to see if there is an 08 or newer steel frame bike manual in the Service Manuals link below. They haven't really changed that much since then.
