BJ, the tool is Suzuki part No.09930-82720.
It's a small 2-position toggle switch with a 5" wire harness that terminates in a connector which is the mate to the underseat Dealer Mode connector. One could easily fabricate one with a small electronic supply store-bought 2-position toggle switch, some wire, and a terminal block w/terminals from Corsa Technica.com. But I'd rather just have one sent to me from Amazon.com for approx $20. This is the tool shown in the factory service manual.
There is a similar tool shown in the manual for ABS diagnosis, but they aren't the same.
My receipt for the tool shows total price as $19.95, and the supplier, through Amazon was Everett Powersports (425)212-2111 EverettPowersports.com

Which part is it you are adjusting - Is it obvious when the tank is lifted?

Anyone knows how the DC650A 2017 will indicate a correctly adjusted TPS?

Regards, Lars.

Hi All,

Attempting to check TPS using the above instructions.

I've jumped the diagnostic plug and l have "c00" displayed on the odometer but there is no hyphen in the lower or upper position at the back of the "c"

Is my TPS set correctly or do I need to adjust the position of the TPS screw for the hyphen to appear? Or have I been a bonehead and missed some step along the way?

Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Same thing to me. No dash next to c00. Would appreciate if someone gave us an idea what's wrong. / DL1000A 2018

Post a picture of what you are seeing.

And check the service manual for your model as to what the TPS sensor setting procedure is. Maybe different than the reference postings.

Dear Bully,
Thanks for your reply!

I have swithed to dealer mode, turned the ignition on. See images attached.

I do not have service manual, so could not check the TPS setting procedure

Any idea what I did wrong?

Jengo,

You are doing it correctly.

I wonder if the USA models are different. My bike had the little mark to the left of the "c00", meaning it looked like _c00 and I adjusted to -c00.

I wish that I knew more to tell you.

Hey Bazooka,
Thank you for the confirmation!
My bike's 6000km service is about to happen.
I will ask the mechanic about it! Would be nice to make sure that this setting is corect (if not then adjust it) because at low speed (like in a roundabout) I don't feel the engine-throttle reaction comfortable... :-(
I can live with it, but as I read above it could be better :-)

Try removing all of the slack out of the throttle cables. I find that cable slack as per the manual accentuates that abrupt on/off jerkiness.

Throttle cable slack is a good point that I am aware of. Unfortunately I couldn't remove it completely because no more adjustment can be done at the throttle side, so this is also one task to do during the service... Thanks Brockie!
