So last year I had zero issues, sled running like a champ.

I get the sled out this year and it will not idle down. It idles around 3000 rpm, sometimes more (like just after a long rip and waiting for group to catch up I have to have the brake on to keep it from creeping). The sled runs great other than this (still pulls from stock F7's from 50-?mph)

Anyone ever experience this with their EFI sled?

I have bmp stock pipe mod and 2.5 degree advanced timing key. I run 92+ all the time. 3800 miles on sled.

I've checked the plugs and they still look fine, if slightly dark/rich.

Hmmm..check your throttle bodie area, make sure it is returning all the way to the stop. Other than that, with those symptoms if it was a carb, it would indicate too much air (lean). Maybe you have a blown crank seal.

Thanks, will try the cable thing.

Plugs look fine, but I'll keep checking the to make sure.

I could just tell the wife I have the blown crankseal. Tell her I patched it with some whatever but that I'll have to replace the crank seal in the off season.

Then it's port time baby, BMP here I come, oh yeah, I'll trade my cylinders for those 925 jugs you got there!!!!


Prolly won't do any of that, but it sure sounds fun.

Did you put a riser on it? Could be causing your issues.

I did put a 6.5 inch riser on it at the end of last year. Didn't make the connection there, but that does make sense.

Good call.

Thanks
