Just finished up installing the Ness Big Sucker (V-5153) on my '12 Vegas. I have been trying different settings on the tuner and was wondering what others were running. Currently have Freedom exhaust installed as well.
I was running the pipes with just the VFC with no issues at all, but with the new airbox, I am getting a higher idle (~1050) than stock. Is this normal with an airbox upgrade?
The idle is "non adjustable" on the 08+ bikes. It should not need adjustment. My experience is that you'll open a can of worms when you start dicking with it.
More than likely you have an air leak or you unplugged the IAV and it's not reset properly. Or both. And now a possibly misadjusted throttle setting.
An air leak may explain the excessive popping too. Your settings do seem a bit rich too.
to reset the IAV you unplug it...let sit for a minute or two then plug back in and start the bike...shut bike back off and listen for the air shudder...you are going to want to cycle the bike a couple or more times to make sure the IAV is adjusted...some setups never get rid of the pop.
