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.

well the main hose to the bottom of the airbox was off. hooked it back up and still pretty much the same thing. except now i am at about 1700-1900 RPM's.

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?

well i am whoring my own thread...sorry. Anyways, after my last post i checked all the vacume lines, cables, etc. to make sure everything was good buttoned her back up took her for a spin and this is prolly the most incredible mod i have done so far. she takes a little longer to come back down to idle but when she does she is right at about 1500. And 1500, i like. seems like she pulls through corners a bit easier and damn does she respond @ like 3 and 4 thousand will a little snap of the wrist. All in all, thank you guys for your help. I love how there is so much knowledge spread about this forum.:thumbsup::eek:ccasion1

1500 is too much, it will get hot in the traffic lights. See if you can adjust it a little down. Typical when secondaries are removed.

well the only way to adjust it is by rolling the throttle forward. the it idles at around 1100. if i let go it comes back up to about 14-1500.

I've adjusted the throttle play numerous times numerous ways to no avail. I read something about the TRE connectors getting wet causing idle probs but it's only been in there like two weeks

You have to turn down the idle screw. Its on the left side of the bike above the front sprocket cover.

On my 06 ZX10R I added the Gipro at the same time when I pulled the secondaries out. First time I started it up it idles at @ 4K! You have to turn the throttle adjustment down when the secondaries have been removed.

We have done this mod a number of times at our shop, Turning down the throttle idle screw is the proper way to adjust it to get it to idle properly.

yep i turned out the idle adjusting screw too. it gets to where it doesnt turn down anymore and i am afraid to turn t all the way out. this is the method i used. Turned it clockwise until the rpm's started to go up. stopped then started to reverse the screw counterclockwise until it would not turn down anymore-no matter how much more i turn it-and it still is idleing at about 14-1500 unless i manually roll my throttle forward.
