Look on the right side of the Throttle Bodies and you should see a vacuum cap on each one. You need a flash light and look toward the top of it. Very well could be rotted. What is your idle? 950 is the target. You can dump some seafoam in the tank for the injection side but that doesn't do the tbodies. Follow the video on cleaning them, it's a must do, then I do mine around 7500 depending on how I ride. Seafoam also makes a TB cleaner foam. Used it, works great. Old tooth brush and a rag. 2hrs later, you will wonder how it makes such an improvement. Do it now! Lol

You may have a stage 1 exhaust and flash as it came with a K&N filter and was an add on that was popular. Dealer hooking up to the computer will tell or if you measure the exhaust tip that could tell you too. Btw, if they are, they are are not something to toss. A lot of TCs out there with the stuffy stocks on. If you really want to get jiggly, rip that screen out of the left side of the air box. You will be shocked at what that lil bit more air will do.

Mpg, you should see low to mid 30s and closer to low 40 over the road on a run. Don't lug it and keep that happy cruise point at 2800-3000.

Looking forward to seeing those pipes on it.

have it all back together now and allready seems to be idling a bit happier it was choking at 600 to 700 now its idling around 1000. maybe its in my head but it seems to accelerate a bit smoother as well. Im having a hard time finding the seafoam throttle cleaner i may have to order it . Ill run it for a bit see how the mpg is with the bit i dif cleaned the Air intake. Im going to take a picture of the intake soon because it seems its a differnt style than ive seen and those numbers come up with nothing on K&ns site. But it does say K&n right on it. I slao didnt have those tubes that sit on the throttle body just 2 holes in the plastic box that the intake filter bolts to.
