Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Problems

Hey guys, I have another problem. This time it's with the TPS. I can not seem to find mine. After looking at the pictures in the service manual and other websites, it looks like my system is a little different. You can barely see both of the screws attached to what I think is the TPS instead of one. here's a couple pics to show you what I mean:




Ok, so I am officially confused. I thought the bottom connector was it, but it has TWO screws on it, instead of the one that is pictured in the repair manual. If this actually is it, can anyone tell me how to adjust the TPS since it has two screws? I feel like such an idiot for posting this, but a couple of friends and myself have looked at it and can't figure it out for the life of us. What do ya think?

Re: Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Problems

Hi there,

The Sensor at the bottom with the two screws holding it is the throttle position sensor.
I have the k2 and mine also looks slight different so dont worry about it.

Cheers

Re: Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Problems

Awesome. Thanks for the help guys. Now, the reason why I was asking all this is because I am trying to fix the TPS position on my speedometer. It is reading too high, and I don't think I can do anything about it since it has two screws. I tried loosening them up, but it doesn't feel like there is any play for the thing to do any adjusting. If I need to, i guess I could pull the thing off and make some slots for it, but I don't want to do anything more than I have to because it is in such an awkward position behind the frame. Anyone got a better alternative?

Re: Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Problems

I would say that one of the screws must be a pivot point and the one with the white mark running onto the engine would be your adjust point. Thats just a guess from lookin at the pic though. Good luck

Re: Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Problems

yep. I got both the screws super loose and got it done. It didn't even feel like I had rotated and it had went from the top bar to the bottom bar before I knew it. Also, getting that online service manual for my bike specifically from one of these threads instead of the hardback for the 600/750/1000 helped a ton too. Thanks for the help guys!
