"Lopy" idle

This is my first inline bike, so maybe this is normal.. but my bike has a really lopy idle when i start it when it is warm. It lopes for 20 seconds, then smooths out and idles pretty smooth.
I'm wondering if this is normal, or if i have some tuning issues.
I have pipe, exup delete, AIS plugged, FCE, and gutted cat for mods...

Whaddya think?

possibly could need a tb sync. but its normal for the most part. the ecu always goes nuts on any engine on first start up. it takes a lil bit for the ecu to "calm down" and get everything smooth. kinda the same aspect as a car or truck idling high when its first started and then idles down after a few seconds. i wouldnt worry about it, mine does it too.

ride more worry less!!!

Mine does it pretty bad too. Sounds like it's got a HUGE cam in it! LOL

The idle on my FZ can be a bit lopy when it's cold (even with freshly sync'd TBs). I wouldn't worry too much about it unless the lopy behavior actual appears when you're moving.

To a degree, this seems about normal. It will probably be more pronounced if your warmed-up idle is set low...and less so if higher.

I think it is normal and sounds bad ass through my TB carbon with the cat gutted and full exaust wrap it is deep with base and sounds like no other bike around. Turn your idle up a little if it bothers you.
