o.k...finally figured it out.
first off, its a California bike, full exhaust, pcIII
, so no o2 sensor. have always had the error code of no o2 sensor pre heater, just didn't bother to get the o2 sim. big mistake, anyone out there, get this (from powercommander)because i couldn't get the error code i was needing to narrow the issue down.
turns out it was the vacume line for the MAP sensor, and had come off. couldn't see it because the frame was obstucting it from being seen. after remapping the pcIII
, and countless other sensor testings (except the MAP sensor), it turns out to be something that simple.
moral of the story, listen to the advise you get, because someone on this site has probably had the same problem.
thanks for the help, because i was sick of dealing with the idle issue...
