Dl1000A TBS procedure

Are the procedures for TBS the same on the V2 as earlier models? I noticed that it is recommended for CA. bikes at first service. I'm about half way there, bike is running well feeling more comfortable every outing.

I believe the procedure is more complex. It changed on the Wee in 2007. The Vee2 also lost the ability for the user to set the idle speed, just like the 2007 Wee. I would leave it alone. The early TBS on CA bikes is about air quality, not how well the bike runs.

Unless somebody with a Vee2 service manual says otherwise, I'll bet the TBS is just an idle air screw adjustment.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

my understanding is that it's something only a dealer can do as you have to have the suzuki "computer"hooked up to the bike.

Thanks, and probably why I haven't been able to find anything on performing this sync. One less thing to think about for maintenance I guess.

As much as it pains me to pay a dealer, I will probably let them do the valve adjustment and check the TB sync then. I prefer to do the work myself.

I know what you mean! I always did my own work, but I'm beginning to realize, it's becoming tougher than it used to be at my age. Much easier to go out, turn the key and just ride. Old age or just getting lazy? Maybe I should check with my Doctor?

I have the service manual.
You need the Suzuki computer hookup lead and program to reset the
ECU after adjusting the throttle bodies.
It cost me $180 to find that out.
Having said that the manual is still useful for other work.

I had a throttle body sync (TBS) done under warranty at the dealer where I bought the bike (2014 DL1000A). The purpose was to help quiet the engine at idle (clack, clack, idle hammer?). When I got the bike back it was quieter and smoother in accelerating however it had an abrupt off throttle when attempting to slow down gradually at 3000 rpm and slower. Riding in stop and go traffic was irritating - no stalling but an abrupt lurching as if the throttle had been quickly closed even though it had only been closed a fraction.

I asked the dealer if the bike had been put on the computer, but was told no. Apparently only the throttle body sync had been done.

I called another dealer and talked with the mechanic there. He said that the TBS had apparently been done wrong and that the Throttle Position Sensor needed to be set using the computer during the TBS. Maybe this is part of the ECU reset?

I have decided to pay the money and get the TBS done at the 2nd dealer where the mechanic appears to know how to do a proper TBS.

I'll repost to report the results from the 2nd TBS and whatever more info I get about the need for the computer.
2mstone and We2V2 like this.

Thanks Wander, Keep us posted, sounds like it may be a manual adjustment but the computer needs to upload the change to the ECU?

Sounds like I'm going to need to find a dealer in my area that knows what they are doing.

Does anyone in San Diego have experience with a quality service department?
