Nutsy, tell your service guy to reference Service Bulletin M-1162. If you have a 2004 or 2005 Sporty you should end up with Program # 32622-04. Good luck!

I just bought a stock 05 XL. In the next few days I'll be taking it into the dealer to have the performance upgrades done (pipes, a/c, jets). Is this something I should ask them about when I go in or is this unique to a SE add on?

Is your bike a 2005? If so look under the seat and see what part number is on the ICM, if it ends with an A you are already in business. With that said it never heards to ask the dealer.

What does ICM stand for? how does it affect the speedo and hiccups?

Thanks for bearing with me.

ICM = Ignition Control Module. The "brain" so to speak. It's the black box right under the seat. It holds the program for the ignition timing and fires the coil, receives info from the MAP senser and the crank sensor. etc. It also sends the pulses to the speedometer/odometer. H-D issued a service bulletin M-1162 that adjusts the pulses to the speedometer/odometer and adjusts the curve to aid in better cold starting, hiccups, etc. No parts needed, just a re flash of the ICM's memory and you're good to go. Current program is #32622-04A. Hope this helps.

Thanks.
I asked the dealer today to look up my VIN for any service bulletins and the only one they had was concerning the fuel supply valve.

I'll be able to be more specific and hopefully they will be able to find it.

Take the seat off and see what number is on the ICM, if it ends with 04A you already have the current flash. If your bike is an 05 and was produced late in 04 then chances are good you don't need anything done. Also another way to find out is check your odo against the mileage signs along the highway if your mileage over 20 miles matches your are okay.

I had to do a little convincing to get the dealer to do it to my bike...they didn't think it was for the XL's, just the Big Twins. The tech that had been wokring on my bike said it wouldn't hurt hurt anything, but probably wouldn't help much either - he said my bike idled better than most as it was. With all of the other changes made at the same time, it will be hard to tell a difference when I get to ride it again in a few months. The only thing I'll be able to look for is carb farts.

The bulletin says the bike should be a 2004 and a 2005 manufactured before
mid September '04, to get the update.
