    i have a 2009 883 iron . ive had the tfi box since day one. just built a new set of long upsweep pipes with no baffles . when the bike warms up it idles real low . it sometimes hesitates and gets really hot . is there a way to raise the idle . it sounds awful when it idles. ive had many pipes and never this problem . any help would be great . thanks...peace!!!

    I'm going to try adjust the green pot in the morning to see if it helps. I had zero problems before the pipes and problems with the idle once it warmed up:(

    Look @ Pot#4 setting...this one works w/idle (sets RPM & shuts off idle fuel). Read TFI instructions to see how it works, but I'd also add some back-pressure to those pipes. Look into adding lollopop baffles...they'll add pressure w/o taking away your sound. Good luck!
