I just bought a new '08 ElectraGlide with 12 mi. on it.

I was riding home from the dealership and I noticed that when stopped, the idle would go from 1000 to 1700. When i kicked it down it would just go back up and fluctuate between 1000 and 1700.
Is this normal for a new harley with FI? Is the FI calibrating itself or something?
Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply.

I guess I'll have to have the dealer look at it.

Well a friends EGC did the same thing ,mine didnt . But take it back and they will put it PC and fix it ... simple fix
Yeah that's what they told me. They said I just needed a software upgrade. Something to do with the throttle sensor.

I hear that a lot, "It's just a software upgrade". So why don't they do this on every bike before it goes on the floor? Or before it leaves the dealership?
