Hello teammates,

I tipped my bike over in a low speed parking lot event...and it seems I picked up this part along with pieces of my front left turn signal. Event happened over a year ago and to be honest, never really thought about it much. I picked up the parts and pieces in an embarrassed hurry and put them away. Bike still ran fine as I left the scene of the crash.

Going through the bin of extra screws, bolts, etc recently and I came across the part and said, aha! Maybe this came off in the fall and its absence is what keeps my bike from staying in synch.

Just seems like I have to do TBS too often. I've got the hoses, the home-made manometer, and the hose extensions. I put the nail polish on to keep it set but it seems to keep going out. I definitely know when it's back in synch and just hate when it goes out because very rough as you all know.

Is this some part that keeps tension/pressure on the TBS adjustment screw.

As always, thanks for your comments and suggestions.

Scot

It's from inside the turn signal housing. take a lens off and you'll see it. It has no effect on the TBS. Check for intake air leaks, especially the seating of the airbox boots on the throttle bodies.

If it is the airbox...

Is there some way to "seal" them. When I last cleaned the filter last month, all looked like they were in there the right way. Do you all augment this sealing with something extra?
