Hi I wonder if anybody else has had this problem. I was up in Panama City Beach for the rally and in stop and go traffic. I could smell and feel the motor was hot. :mad::(, even if I turned the throttle forward to run on one cylinder. I have a 2009 and it has the 102 kit in it. I have a oil cooler with fan and the oil presser was low like 10lb. But if I took off and was moving and cooled down the motor it would idle. I have a JAGG LOW MOUNT 10 ROW FAN ASSISTED OIL COOLER with fan. I bought the bike used. The lady I bought it from said a Harley dealer did the work to make it a 102.I have not dyno'ed it.I have stock air cleaner and Rinehart pipes.I don't know about the cam. Do Harley dealers keep work record that when they have worked on a bike? On a computer that I can look up by vin number? I was told that in bumper to bumper traffic if I turned the throttle forward it ran on one cylinder.
A small red light come on when I did that.
Thank you for any help!

I disable the one cylinder option on my bikes ~ also the 10lb at idle when HOT is not bad ~ my 10 and 6 would drop to nothing.... Fuel is Cool ~ so a bump on the throttle while stopped will cool them also ~ the Dealer that did the work will have the records ~

I don't know about the 2009, but the "Parade Mode" doesn't work that way on my 2012.
I have to do it prior to starting the engine. With the ignition on twist the ttle forward and hold it. The Cruise Control will light up momentarily after approximately five seconds. If it lights up green, the parade mode is enabled, if it's red parade mode has been disabled.
After enabling it, operation is automatic. If oil temp goes over 210 degrees (IIRC) and bike is stationary with 1) clutch pulled in OR 2) tranny in neutral then the rear cylinder will be deactivated. Once throttle is moved or clutch handle is being released rear cylinder is reactivated.
Even here in Central Texas it doesn't kick in all that often. The only times it's ever kicked in for me was when the ambient temps were over 100 degrees and I was running in traffic.

no, it doesn't work that way on the 2009 either. the parade mode, or eitms, is a very confusing thing for many folks. all the rider can do is to enable/disable it. for it to activate, the bike has to meet specific criteria. if any one of those criteria are not met, it will not shut off the rear cylinder.

and oil temp is not one of those criteria. cylinder head temp is. appr. 285*

hd manual said:
EITMS will activate (rear cylinder will turn off) when all of the following conditions are met:

Engine temperature is greater than 287 degrees F domestic (165 deg C international)
Twist grip opening is at idle
Vehicle speed under 1 mph (2km/h)
Engine speed under 1200 RPM

EITMS will disable (rear cylinder will again fire) if any one of the following occurs:

Engine temperature falls below 275 deg F domestic (135 deg C international)
Twist grip opening is greater than idle
Vehicle speed exceeds 2 mph (3 km/h)
Engine speed exceeds 1350 RPM
Clutch is released with vehicle in gear

When the engine is in EITMS operation, you may notice a difference in idle cadence. Additionally, there may be a unique exhaust odor. These are both considered to be normal conditions.
