TPS

Can anyone give me a tip on accessing the TPS? I don't want to do a bunch of dis-assembly that isn't required. I had the left tank side cover off and it didn't seem to help. Do I need to pivot the tank up?

Is it acting up, or are you just curious?

Nothing wrong, planning on checking it this weekend. It does seem a bit lean just off idle especially when cold.

On the Vee, you do not need to access the TPS to check it. You check it by using the diagnostic system which gives the readout on the clock. You use a jumper wire or paper clip to jump terminals on the ECU.

To adjust, again on the Vee, you can go in horizontally from the left side without moving/removing anything. Its hard to see and adjustments are made almost by "feel".

Sorry, I have no wee, I prefer the highly carbonated coolaide.

Thanks Scott. I am a tweaker, so I was thinking of just messing around with it. I don't think it would have much effect with the Glee's closed-loop FI when warmed up, but it might make a difference when cold.

Cyrus is a twerker (and a right twonk), not a tweaker, let alone a tweeker. If you twerk your TPS I doubt it will run right ... plus your mechanic will turn their arse to the nearest protective object when you walk by.
