Hi Kristi,

That is really not an option on a FI bike. If your idle is low it is indicative of another issue & raising the idle, if possible, would only band aid the issue until the plugs fouled out. Which, I suspect is the case anyway.

How many miles are on the bike?

so what are the two throttle cables for? the one on the front for what? and the one on the back for what?
Expert:  .... replied 8 years ago.
Those are for throttle operation, the front cable is your pull cable, the rear cable is a federally mandated "safety" cable, in case you like fall asleep or something, or become incapacitated behind the bars, or worst case scenario that the spring on the throttle wheel breaks & does not return on it's own that cable will return it. They will not do anything to raise the idle unless adjusted way too tight.

It is critical that you have the correct amount of free play in the cables for the throttle.

so what would the proper way to raise the idle be?
does it need to be hooked up to a computer, or is there a idle adjustment screw that can be raised on a fuel injected bike.
Expert:  .... replied 8 years ago.
There usually isn't a idle adjustment on an FI bike & none of the Victory's I've touched had them. The best thing to do is let the dealer check it for codes, & if it still under warranty, it is best to let them handle it anyway. Sorry there isn't better news or a direct fix. The problem needs found, & it could be as simple as a tune up.
