Default Hello from NE Ohio

I just joined the forum, enjoy the tech threads. I started with an '01 V92CD and have owned an '08 Vision tour for 5 years. I painted it candy cobalt blue with silver and titanium tribals. I added a twin sucker air box and K&N filters, Ness exhaust, stage 3 cams, Ness fuel controller, blue LED lighting and chrome pretties. I have clocked over 34,000 miles on it and the ONLY failure has been a voltage regulater at 28,000 miles. Still have original battery and rear brake pads, fronts at 30,000. My only issue is the popping and banging during up/down shifts. This has been happening since new, prior and after cams. Tried fuel controller, numerous configurations, etc. Any thoughts? thinking about a LLoydz adjustable IAC valve.

Congrats and welcome to the Victory Forums! After reading many posts about the IAC it seem that it should solve most of your popping. Thankfully I haven't had to deal with that but we'll see what happens when I ride closer to sea level.

Lloydz IAV definitely subdued my popping along with being smoother when closing the throttle.

Thank you all for the hospitality. I will give the IAC a try, as soon as I figure out the tire wear. Got 5000 miles on ME 880 and cupped and out of round, this is the second set of these, the last one lasted 8500 and the cords were showing. Got 8000 out of the E3's. Looking at an Avon AV 72. Sounds like the 'stones aren't the answer either. Jacked the pressure from 38 up to 41, no better. Don't think I'm hard on the throttle, as I average 44 mpg with 50.2 my best. Open to any suggestions. I do mostly rural driving, a little twisty, 30% is two up, and normally check pressure every couple weeks or before long ride.

Taking flying lessons was the best thing that happened to what I did with vehicles on the ground. The first thing my instructor said was that every move would be deliberate but like I was in an atmosphere of molasses. That was in the early 60s and I was racing Triumph sport cars--farm implements with two seater bodies. I guess I was applying that instruction to my driving techniques, because my lap times dropped measurably. My riding also got smoother and better and (in addition to proper air pressures) tire life expanded dramatically. In the the early 80s I was running the first of the Dunlop Elites and I got 22K miles on a rear tire. Since then, I have never gotten less than 17K on a rear on any brand, mostly two up. I love carving twisties, I'm not slow by any means and do touring @ 400 to 600/day. So I guess being smooth with the controls is what's doing it for me. Should for you too, unless you have something wrong with your bike.
