Lean causes pinging, but so does heat. If you were running hot enough to activate the "Parade mode", then the bike was hot and some pinging could be expected, until temps drop back down and you get the bike moving again.

if you ride with gold wing or any jap bikes they steady belittle your ole Harley . when you get tired of b.s. sooner or later your going to get keyed or dinged . I only ride with Harley only bikes . it'll save a lot of grief . the price is the same for a Harley or jap bike . if you want one buy a Harley !! any harley will get twice the gas milage as a gook bike especially in the mountains . Harley will bring its bill of sale price in 20 years an where do you think most gook bikes are in 20 years or for that part where are a lot of the B.M.W.s @ . what do you expect excellents "Harley" after 110 years . "Harley "pure red blooded American !! my thoughts. Bud

Have you dyno tuned it? Mine (09 FLHX) never pings when in parade mode, or ever for that matter.

I believe when the bike drops into parade mode, it richens the mixture by itself, based on the ECU parameters, outside of or regardless of any Fuel management system.

Dyno testing or settings on the PC-V wouldn't affect that, rather fuel octane and ambient temps would.

I'm not up on th PC-V but don't you think a good tune would help?
