Hi Idle and/or BBS poll

Quasi info gathering post on whether or not you've experienced High Idle and/or Bucking Bike Syndrome (no guessing, you'll know it) on your bike.

I deleted the first one so I could add the year models to the poll and the second one because it really screwed things up.

Wouldn't let me vote, says I already voted...
I'm assuming that it doesn't matter whether the box/software has been upgraded or not,

Seems the model responses of "yes" 24 does not add up to the total 21. WTF?

I've had issues with the bike running smoothly, and have had the airbox upgraded, but I don't think it's the same problem. The bike would run rough and died at stop lights, but it didn't "buck". It's still not right after the upgrade, but I'm hoping the new air filter will finally quash this bug.

I would trust the numbers associated with the year, not with the yes/no, because people may have two bikes (years) with one 'yes' or 'no'.

Cheers, Ralph

Running rough/dyeing

I've had this problem on my 07GT. Turns out it's from overfilling the gas tank and fuel getting into the carbon canister. I'm in the habit of not putting the bike on the center stand and also topping off the tank with as much as it can hold. Not any more!

well I misvoted I didn't note the yes/no part very well. I am a YES for 2007. I just got my airbox done and it seems to be ok now.

Still irritated as hell be the gradual throttle response that the bike seems to think I need. Wish there was a way to turn that off.

Went for a long ride today, temp over 25° C, at the end of the ride, after 30km highway the idle got stuck at 2500 rpm. I could force the idle speed down by releasing the clutch while in gear, but the sligthest touch of the throttle let the idle speed go back to around 2500 rpm. I already have the new airbox (v3) and the latest software update (v 11.1).

Anyone else have the HIBBs with the new airbox?

Grtz,
Erwin

Yes there have been.
I have been monitoring several different sites. I think there have been three others.

My 06 has almost 8,000 miles on the upgraded airbox/software with no problems.
