Hi. I just picked up a 2005 Vee. It had a bit of a studder around 4K, so I figured I would sync the throttle bodies. I pretty much had them balanced but was trying to get them even closer and, oops, reached in a grabbed the wrong screw and gave it a twist. Took a little bit before I realized what happened. Seemed like a good time for a break right then.

So I've been trying to research a cure. The couple procedures I've seen so far talk about removing the tank (mine is over half full currently). Does this need to be done on a DL1000 to reset the fast idle?

I'm not morally opposed to removing the tank since I need to get familiar with the bike anyway. But if it isn't necessary, I'd rather not bother with it. Thanks!

There should be an external screw by the frame rail below the side of the tank on the left side...looks like a phillips head. Good luck with the sync. I had to remap my efi to get the stumble out.

I checked the TPS and it's fine. The throttle bodies are now balanced. But the studder around 4-5000 is actually worse. :confused: I haven't verified the fast idle is set correctly, but it doesn't seem like that would matter.

Is there anything in the area of the balance screw I might have bumped? It's not terrible, but it is definitely worse. Front plug wire maybe?

Maybe move your post to the DL1000 (Vee) section, but ... not quite sure what you think you did wrong. Set the fast idle wrong? I've done that, and then I undid it.

I've become a fan of what a competent shop can do with Yosh box tuning. After it, I've had nothing but smiles for four years now (except for the rear TB boot blown off once).

Thanks. Actually I did a revised post in the Vee section. Things became clear after I pulled my head out of my . . .

I actually never touched the fast idle adjustment. I had been turning the Secondary adjustment to try to balance the TBs and then mistakenly turned the right screw (but thought that was the fast idle adjustment). :headbang: Once I took a step back (and took the tank off) things became much clearer.

On the plus side, it made me dive deeper into my new bike and I now have a better understanding of it. Throttle bodies balanced, secondaries squared away, and TPS checked and in spec. Also new plugs and replaced a very dirty air filter.

On the downside, the stumbling is still there, maybe a little better. And yes, it is looking like it is simply an EFI thing that I will just have to address with a PCIII or Yosh box. Still content it's tuned up and adjusted properly now, but will definitely still address the surging in the near future.
