I have a 2020 Talon 1000x-4 Live Valve that was having a hard time idling and would die when I put it in gear. After doing some research I found that a possible culprit would be a dirty Idle Control Valve so I pulled it out to look and it was dirty. I threw that one away and ordered a new one. When I put the new one in the Talon now jumps from 2500-3000 rpm and back over and over when idling. Upon inspection I noticed that the plunger screws up and down on the new ICV so I thought that maybe it needs to be set at a specific spot before installing and I don’t have the old one to compare it to.
I tried a hard reset with no luck. Does anyone else have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Did you ever find a solution? I think I need to replace mine.

Yes, the ICV was the problem and when I installed it I didn’t line up the groove in the valve with the pin so it wasn’t install correctly. Once I lined up the pin and the groove it ran fine.

It was tricky getting it in correct because I couldn’t see the pin at all, I even took the battery box out thinking I might be able to get a better angle but my big head could get in to see it. Lol

I ended up taking a picture of the inside cylinder with my phone so I knew exactly where the pin was then had no problem.
Hope that helps.
