TT600 Cold idle

Hi all, New owner of a 02 TT600 in need of some help.

Firstly it has a Leo vince SBK end can and is running on the (10166) map.

Is it normal for these to idle at 3k when cold? Its quite annoying when i just want to get on the bike (cold) and ride, Makes me look like a royal idiot too with the loud can and high idle.

If it is normal, Is there any way of lowering it? I have twiddled with the Idle in TuneECU but it dosent seem to make any difference.

I had the whole airbox off the other day to check plug condition, air filter ect..

The air filter is new and the plugs look great, no apparent air leaks and hoses look fine.

Its just had a new Air temp sensor as it was giving me the error..

Another thing, The previous owner said the bike origionally had the (10105) map in and the bike was somehow better with it, Iv'e looked around for this map and cant find any downloadable version.. Does anyone have a copy?

The tt has an auto choke (or it just revs higher, not sure which one!) that cuts off at 59 degrees coolant temperature so that it warms up quicker.
Unfortunately that's the trade off with having a loud can and i'm not sure if you can turn it off

Still having these problems but now its had a full service and has the original can back on.

The main problem now though is the jerkiness of the bike..

I just replaced the o'ring in the stepper motor (it was as flat as a pancake) to see if that helps, But as i was putting the tank back on, the o'ring for one of the petrol pipes broke, so now i am waiting on a new one to arrive.

Any help would be appreciated.

Yeah, I got orings for it at my local hardware store. Sounds like cracked vacuum hoses to me.

Max has what I would expect. Get a leak in the intake somewhere and it will run like a two stroke with oversized flat slides, at least at low rpm. The difference is there will be no insane power somewhere in the powerband. It will just be balky everywhere.

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
