Idleing high after butterfly removal??????

so i have been reading thoroughly about removing the flies so i did tonight. Now i went out to test it and it ran great but it wont come down any less than about 3700-4000 rpm's. i tried the idle adjusting screw and got it to idle higher but not any lower. what could be the issue? any help would be great ! thank you in advance.

also if i turn the throttle closed it seems to help it a bit but that would be a pain in the rear to have to do all the time.

Weird, I swear somebody else said something similar. Yet, I had the complete opposite problem. I actually had to raise my idle after removing them. However I also installed TRE at the same time.

I would definately recheck your work. removing the secondaries should not have that effect at all. Like stated above, something pinched, sensor unplugged, forgot to plug a vacuum line back in.

got the airbox off now. it looks like the primaries are closing all the way but when i roll forward a little they shut just a bit more like maybe 1/3 cm (if thats a number) i dont know? im skerd to turn out the idle too much and have the adjuster come out cause i turn it in till it idles up then turn it out till it wont go down anymore. i dont know cables look good. there is not much in there that can mess with them.


i also have Ivans TRE on there. Would that make a difference?
