Default Throttle Bodies

I cleaned my throttle bodies for the first time, I had read all the threads and thought Id check it out. When I opened my airbox I thought I was wasting my time, there wasnt any oily residue on the bottom of the box and the throttle bodies werent discolored much and didnt really wipe anything off with my finger. I went ahead with the cleaning since I was already in there and put it all back together. I had to lower my idle after the cleaning(Id raised it yr before last,but forgot I had to)and it seems to have smoothed it out. I will make that a once a yr service now.

you would do your self and us a lot of help if you said what year and model your bike is.
If its a bike newer then 08 there is no cleaning

Watched this video last week, great video. Have owned other bikes before, and very helpful for how to remove the tank on a victory.

At 19,000 miles when I bought my 07 KP last year I do not believe the throttle bodies had ever been cleaned and the K&N filter had caused a lot of gunk to form on them! My bike would barely idle before. After the clean it sits at 900 rpms idle and runs like a raped ape!
