PCV no start condition when cold...

I have an '09 stock stage 1, 96" with a PCV with AutoTune. When the outside air temps are cold, around 40 degrees the bike doesn't start. Cranks fine, but won't fire up. I unplugged the PCV and reconnected the stock ecm and it fires up immediatly. Anyone else had this problem?

A friend of mine had the same issue with her "07 Heritage. They replaced the PC and all was good. Until the stator went out. lol (unrelated)

You might try hitting the starter button as soon as you turn the ignition on, dont wait for the light to go out like HD tells you to.
give fuel moto a call and they should be able to help.

The first thing I would check is battery voltage, also check voltage drop at crankover. The PC-V requires about 9V to power up and if your battery is marginal and drops voltage excessively it may not be enough to power up the unit.

Ok Thanks. Turns out that there was a batch of units up here that require a firmware update. We'll see if thats it. If not, I'm getting a new unit under warranty.
