Default Stage 1 issue.

So currently waiting for a Victory trouble ticket answer but figured I would reach out here. I searched but did not find what I was asking, or at least not using the search terms I was using.

I had the Stage 1 flash, filter and Tri Pro put on my Judge. Now the RPM does not drop off when the throttle is closed. It acts like fuel is still going into the throttle bodies and supplying it to the engine. Being that the throttle is mechanical we looked at all those pieces. Everything closes properly, no loose or disconnected hoses, no exhaust leaks etc. I suggested redoing the ECU flash but apparently that costs money and unless Victory authorizes it not going to be free. Any thoughts from anyone else on what the issue might be?

This isn't a judgement against my dealer, I understand not wanting to do free work etc.

Stock flashes are free. I don't see why they could not use the same code to reflash the Stg 1 you already purchased.

Good luck with this.

Ride safe.

Not sure. Maybe it is a one time use in the system?

Maybe your IAV is not working or there is a air leak

Is this occurring intermittently or all the time?

Who put on the upgrades? The dealer? If so the dealer needs to fix this.

Is it possible that the Idle Air Control is not plugged in? Certainly sounds like it is not working correctly, and allowing too much air into the motor at idle.

Sounds like an air leak to me as well.

That is what it sounds like to me as well. They didn't work on this area of the bike however. The dealer did out it on and they are talking to Victory. There is no leak or loose hoses, we looked. I agree with the assessment. Damn thing runs great otherwise at this point. It is just a little dangerous when it runs out the RPM and you are rolling off the throttle for a turn.

I'm doubting it's the flash, classic symptom of an intake air leak. A good tech should be able to diagnose this easily with a can of carb cleaner sprayed around the intake boot area while it's idling.

Thats a good one Wil and my head hurts from thinking about it.
My only idea is Queer Electrons that we can't see.
Focus on the dangerous part and they might get off there asses.
They re done my JackPot a couple times just because I complained of it starting different. Good luck man.

I have to grow old but I don't have to grow UP.thumb up. 2010 Jackpot.
