Default Stage 1 deceleration issue

I've had the mapping upgraded to stage 1 at a victory shop a couple of weeks ago and I noticed that the rpm take ages to go down to idle while decelerating.

I need to use the brakes a lot more than before. at the beginning I wasn't used to that I felt it was even dangerous in the traffic.

a friend with a HB 2012 has the same issue. he believes it comes from the exhaust which is not a stage 1 exhaust from victory.

I think it comes from a bad mapping from victory. have any of you experienced this?

issue only happens when the engine is hot.

when I release the throttle, rpm goes up just a bit and then stabilises for a second and then finally goes down but very, very slowly compared to before stage 1.
almost no engine brake.

can someone confirm that it cannot have anything to do with the exhaust?

the dealer asked victory but they did not come back on this yet. any insight would be much appreciated.

Just reconfirms that Vic stage 1 is garbage and a waste of your hard earned dollars... Get a fuel controller and the problem will disappear.

I know that. the reason I did not go for a pcv is that it needs to be tuned and I don't think anybody around would be able to do that. Victory makes its way in Europe, but to find a victory tuner specialist I believe it needs some more time.

if nothing comes from victory I plan on removing it.

I would like at least to be sure it cannot be linked to the exhaust.

stock exhaust without the mufflers until I receive the rpw. my friend has the jekill & Hyde mufflers.
same pb on both bikes.

The download might not of been loaded correct.
Stage 1 adds 2% more fuel and 2% more timing.
Exhaust has nothing to do with it.
Your cables might not be on the wheel correctly. Pull right hand cheese wedges and twist the throttle and see if the cable are tracking correct.
No need for motor to be running

thanks John.
I checked the cables, they look ok. nothing changed there before/after the upload of the stage 1.
ill ask them to reflash. if it does not work I'll simply ask them to remove it and for a refund.

some are very happy with stage 1, apart from this issue, I don't see a huge difference over stock.

Hi.
Are you saying you are running just the head pipes with the cats and no mufflers at all without a fuel adder of any sort? Just curious...
