    installed the TFI easy to do. but i pulled the tank no way i could get my hands in there . bike has more response to it. not sure of the heat did a short test ride , nintys here then . only thing that has me concerned is that it dropped my idle down to bout 5 or 6 hundred should i raise it up ??????

    What dropped your rpm? Installing the TFI would not have impacted this. What else was changed or adjusted? Your rpm should be up around 1k.

    I agree with TQ. That is a bunch of RPM to loose. I am pretty sure you should be logging codes that the IAC stepper is pegged in an attempt to reach your target RPM set point of 1K.

    Take a look and see if you have any idle RPM/IAC codes just to confirm the ECM is still in control of Idle set point..

    How's your highway miles? I changed my first green mode to 2.5 from 3.5 and I'm seeing better milage. I went from 49 to 41 after installing my Gen 3 on 2010 Road Glide Custom. I might drop green mode to 2 just to see how the bike runs and a little more gas milage.
