High Idle Issue

Had the BeerBurner apart checking for the oil leak. I decided the rear main seal was going out. In the process found the engine vent line had a split in it. So I replaced it (vent line) while the bike was apart I decided to remove the canister. Finaly got the bike back together and now I have a high idle issue and getting about 200 miles per tank. Bike is running good, only high idle. Suspect a vacum line problem.

Does anyone have a diagram of the vacum lines route? As soon as I get a chance I plan to pull the tupperware and check it out!

ps the oil leak has gone away, I can only assume I overfilled it at the last oil change!

Re: High Idle Issue

I had idle issues with my LT and removed the canister as well. Afterward, the bike didn't idle any better than before. I am in the process of putting Emil back together after R&R both shocks, throttle cable upgrade, adjusting the clutch and throttle switches to solve CC issues, and rewire the Garmin directly off the battery. During all that, I removed all four vacuum lines and capped off the ports on the TBs. Doing my initial start and short test run tonight I didn't have any idle issues at all. The ol' beast started right up (first time it's been started since the end of October) and ran without any complaints from me. As for the rest of the vacuum lines, I pulled them all off the bike figuring I won't need them.
