TPS adjustment

Is there an howto for the TPS adjustment for the DL1000 2014+? I'm pretty sure mine is off and the search is not helping tonight...

Get a Boosterplug. Makes it a nicer engine.

I installed one but removed it, at first it did smooth the engine, but when it got near freezing it stalled a few times and had terrible gas mileage.

Talked to Boosterplug but they said that there must be something wrong with the bike. If I'm to believe all the positive review, I think they are right.

One morning the computer was telling me that I was between 10L and 12L per 100KM(23.5 and 19.5 mpg)... That's what I get from my V8 truck Removed it later that day and the next morning bike was now between 6L and 8L per 100KM(39 and 29 mpg), still not great, but that was a huge drop. I remember cruising last summer and getting much lower numbers.

I'll probably bring it to the dealer to see if everything is OK for them...

Well all I can say I don't have the same experience when riding in the cold. No stalling. I don't track gas mileage so I am not positive but nothing stood out indicating getting only half the mileage. Stange
