Yup , had mine dynotuned by KMC runs great and super strong . BUT , if I blip the throttle , on occasion it pukes , and dies . This sucks in traffic situations . One of my riding buddies does exactly the same thing . Don't blip if possible to avoid a dangerous situation .

Try disconnecting the O2 sensors. There's a connector a few inches from the sensor. Installing a Lloydz adjustable timing wheel works a lot of magic. Also, stop the "look at me" blipping.

Blipping is not necessary. I have more to say about it, but will keep it simple.

Precisely ! I could never understand that mentality. Do you "blip" the gas pedal in your cage? NO ... then why do it on your motorcycle ... unless you're tryin to look "cool" and grab attention... or just show off (which is pretty much the same thing).

Thats true good point dtmmil.... I always rode 4 cylinder bikes also, so i never had to "blip" .....

At each trafic light's here there are minimum 50 moped's queuing, with whole families on the Moppet's, so blipping would just scare the **** out of people here .... RPW slash are just too noisy to blip :banghead:

LOL A lot of the carbed HD's had the idle screw turned out, some unknown to the owner/rider. Many just did it "because".

+whatever on Vic's not liking the "blip". KevinX explained it as the secondary butterflies in the throttle body or something to the effect, not syncing fast enough. Not an "issue" but certainly something to be avoided.

My XS650 had to be blipped to keep running as it was a cantankerous machine and the electric starter was useless so if it died at the lights it was hold up the traffic till I get it kickstarted and running again.
If I turned the idle up to where it would run it would then idle töo fast....so I blipped

I still match rev on downchanges on the Vegas but not into first gear.

My old wideglide needed to blipped to keep it running when the temps where colder or until it was really warmed up...
Did they not have a choke?

I don't sit there and blip the bike, pipes aren't loud enough just blip it to start from a stop I'll rev it up a little back off then let out clutch and give it throttle that's when it stutters
