Hey PT and GW or anybody else listening...here goes.
I found the diagnostic connector behind the left rear panel. I crafted a nice u shaped jumper out of a paper clip (price is right) and permantly installed it for now, replaced rubber cover, and shoved connector back where it belongs so I can monitor any codes on the fly.
The paint mark on the TPS screw from the factory is still there and the TPS has not moved. BTW, on a 2007 Vee, the TPS is on the front throttle body and can be seen and reached without removing or lifting the tank. Manual shows pulling tank and airbox......wrong.
The clock is now showing (-COO) as it should for a properly adjusted TPS. Throttle blips do not change the -COO reading at idle.
My question....I know, I am getting to it...My TPS reading will not raise the - mark to the upper location until 2400 to 2500 rpm. Can I condemn my TPS now, or should I reset the TPS to trip at 1500 rpm as suggested? While I was getting these readings the bike was idling OK, a slight bit rougher than usual and at about 1200 rpm. Usually the tach is rock staedy and set at 1300 rpm.
Any other thoughts to try beforer I order the $85 part (shipping inc.)
