Default Suggestions?

I will be picking up my new XC on the 15th. I am having Lloyd's Air Filter Assembly installed along with the dealer's exhaust modficatons. Anything else need to be done?

Fuel controller.

When the tank is off for the air filter, it's the perfect opportunity to clean the throttle bodies.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

How do you clean them? They're buried in the frame. Is there something people spray in there on them?

Throttle bodies do not need to be cleaned on any Victory from 2008 to current. This only apples to 99-07 bikes.

And to answer the OP's question: CAMS!

How can that be, the crank case vent dumps into the frame near the TBs where they must suck in the oily discharge?

1). Most deposits are combustion deposits, not crank vent deposits.
2). The IAC blows air over the tb's keeping them clean, plus the new fuel injection is less affected by what little does build up.
3) there is no way to clean them on anything with a stock airbox anyway, you'd have to pull the motor.

Nice. Scratching that off my "to do" list for tomorrow. Thanks!
