Help me diagnose what I screwed up. I'm done tinkering for the day and started in on the beer so... I'll wait until tomorrow to look at the bike again.
What I did-R&R plugs with OEM, remove AIS, install Ivan's block offs and installed cat delete. I was going to pull the cams to see if I had retainer issues so I pulled the throttle bodies. Then I decided I'd better run the bike first to make sure I didn't screw anything up. So, I buttoned it all back up.
I fired up the bike and it backfires a ton at idle-really fawking loud. I feel bad because it scared the hell out of my dog and the neighbors came out to see what was going on.
I fired it up again and it didn't seem too happy to idle but it ran fine and didn't backfire with a few RPMs. It did make a bit more noise but that could have been the cat delete.
Prior mods are LV Superbike slip ons, a PCIII with full LV system map, TRE and, um... nothing else that would affect the engine. Prior to recent work, the bike ran quite nicely-no issues.
I figure 1 of 2 things is buggered up. I've got map issues. I'll get a custom tune done but I didn't want to do it until the winter if I can help it. I want to check the valves first and address retainer issues if I have them. If this issue is common, and I suspect it isn't, maybe make a manual adjustment to the fueling with my trusty laptop at idle/closed throttle. Or 2, I crossed plug wires on cylinders 1 and 2. I won't be too surprised if this is the answer. I thought I was careful but... things happen.
I'm really tired, had too much to drink (that's not much, I rarely drink) and I'm in a piss off because my truck took a dump on me this afternoon.
Tomorrow I'll solve the current issue I hope, replace oil and filter, install HIDs, bleed the brakes and give her a good cleaning. I put on a new chain and went to a 16-40 sprocket setup. That ought to be interesting. I've got to bleed the summer air out of my tires and put the fall air in. It's that time of year again.
