ciedema and fellow LC8 owners,

I am responding only to review the 15 min idle documentation mention in the above post. I really don't "no jack" but I can read.

I just checked the manual on the pages mentioned. This 15 min idle refers to, when using the KTM diagnostic tool. No procedures for doing this as a tune up. This is to reset the idle after engine replacement or maybe the dealer fixing the idle on a bike in the shop with the KTM diagnostic tool.

I still need convincing that the "15 minute idle" is nothing more than a sugar pill, wishful thinking, as an engine tuning procedure. Don't flame me if I am wrong as I hope I am wrong. But this looks like a shaman throwing bones. Yes I know, when I do the 15 min idle, I always feel like the bike is running better, but is it.
