I've done some searching and came up with nothing. I've never been able to figure out how to adjust the idle speed on my 2008 brute. I want to idle it up some to try and lessen the dying under water tendency it has when the exhaust goes under. It'll run fine under water, but only if I give it a tad bit of throttle. If I let go the bike dies.

Thanks for the info,

Jeremy

You can do it. I posted it on HL. Did you download the 08-09 manual we have in the manuals section? (we have 65 different manuals plus power commander maps)

If not go get it! in the mean time, here's the page!

I have an 09 and was wondering about the idle also. So I decided to get the hmf swamp series with the snorkle. See if that will help with the underwater issues lol

I would take it in...sounds to me like its an issue somewhere else...maybe like fuel pump pressure, vaccum. Crap....:thinking: Thats a hard one. I had that issue on my King Quad...did not wanna idle hardly at all. Messed with it for a few months. I ajusted the throttle cable to help but it was hard to get in gear. Then a guy told me to check my battery volts....so I did. They were barely low...and I mean barely...the bike started up just fine. I put a new battery in it and BAM...sure enough that was it. If the electronic crap didn't have the exact volts it would not work right. So, after this long story....I would check the battery....LMAO! Cause you know they rarely charge them correctly form the dealer.

:agreed: all the electronics required for the EFI needs a certain amount of juice... if the battery isn't putting out what it needs, then it wont run...
