Disconnecting IAT

MY 2006 LT has issues when its hot outside, 90f plus.
It is a dog pulling away from stop lights, seem like the timing is in a major retard, requiring a lot of clutch slipping to get her going.

Will it hurt things to disconnect the IAT at the air box?

I have read a lot of info about the earlier LT's, the brown wire etc. but not much info on the 2005's on up.

Thanks for your input.

later...Randy

Re: Disconnecting IAT

Don't know if that will help or not but something is not right. I just rode 700 miles this weekend in 92+ temps and this old girl was just fine. I was pulling a Bushtec as well 2 up. I feather the clutch at red lights but never rev more than 12-1500 RPM until the clutch is fully engaged then roll on the power. She always pulled away smartly. How has your gas mileage been lately?

Are you running ethanol fuel? It has a tendency to cause a hesitation from a stop-start.....

Re: Disconnecting IAT

John,Chris,

My gas mileage has been around 45 mpg,50 mpg if I ride it decent.
All I can get is corn gas in Utah, so yes it has been run with ethanol.
It's not a hesitation, it's down on power, like the timing's retarded.

Kirk recommends pulling the IAT connector in his videos on his earlier bike.

I pulled the connector yesterday and it runs much better, especially at stop lights, 52 mpg on the display. Rode for about 50 miles.
Everything seems normal including idle speed, acceleration
etc.
I would imagine the only thing is, that it would run a little richer and the timing is not retarded.

Ran good before, except when it was hot outside.

Thanks for the reply's...Randy
