Re: How to Adjust the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)

Tip for doing this quickly....No need to take carbys off. Leave harness connected to TPS. Remove connector from ecu located left rear under seat. Probe corresponding wires with multimeter there and adjust TPS. Takes about 5mins.

Re: How to balance your carbs

Check your TPS and do the Bernie Morgan air filter mod, that will help it smooth out. Adjusted my TPS today. I did it by just removing the seat and probing the wires at the ignition module. Was able to get at the TPS easy enough with the seat off too. It was at 758ohms. Have adjusted it to 500. Hav...

Re: How to balance your carbs

2600rpm in 5th or 6th is not something these big V2's like. it will be lumpy as hell if you try that, so it sounds like your bike is normal. Agreed- what were you thinking? You should be in 5K in fourth then, just picking up nicely. Stir it up ((c) Bob Marley) What was i thinking? I was thinking im...

Thanks NZspokes. I finally found a brass fitting....a mechanic from a bike shop gave me his out of his toolbox after telling him about how many shops ive been too. Did a carb balance doing a minor adjustment. Seems to have made a slight difference but can still feel a vibration. I can feel it when i...

Hi all, Ive gone through a lot of threads looking for the exact size of the brass fitting with no luck. I dont want to have to remove the fiddly blanking plug to go to different stores only for them to not have one etc. Does anyone know the type and size of thread at all? Ive only just bought my 03 ...
