TPS Finicky ?

Well on my 06 Vee annual with 12K after valve shims etc. I decided to
adjust the (Note every valve at minimum)

It started OK but the TPS line raise was like 2800 rpms so I adjusted it

Well it took like 10 iterations of micro adjustments before I got like raising at about 1700 and decided to quit.

Is this notchyness in your experience ?

I also think I F up as the TBS needed to move which I did after tps which I am sure changed it but its where it is now.

I just did both the other day (again) and noticed that while doing the TBS (with the dealer mode still on) after doing the TPS, the bar rose to high at 1700 instead of the 1500 I had set prior to the TBS. I believe one has to perform the TBS prior to re setting the TPS as a least one seems to affect the other

Doing the TBS rotates the shaft that the TPS is on so yes sequence should be TBS then tps

I will put a couple of tanks of gas thru her and see if I think there is a problem

I had synced the 2ndaries using a measurement which required adjustment so I had expected the need to TBS

For the first time I just adjusted my my STPS with a meter, which was off. I don't remember the exact values but mine was at .8x and adjusted to spec at 1.x. I had synced the secondary plates a while ago.

Yes TBS then TPS. And yes, adjusting the TPS is a pain, one blond crotch hair of movement and bam big change in readings on display and tach.

Good

I had the idea that maybe the notchyness was the beginning of the TPS failure
