Had a chance to test it out last night. Noticeable difference - bike is much smoother at lower RPMs.

I also decided to remove the TRE (installed by the bike's previous owner). The TRE was causing the bike to have some weird issues while cold (it would not idle normally on its own), requiring me to start it a couple of times until she was up to temperature. This no longer is the case with the TRE removed.

I'm pretty happy with the way the bike is running now. Feels much more stable and predictable.

This site is a great resource for this timeless bike. Thanks all!

I often act insane to remain sane.

So I got my dealer mode tool in and flipped it on and saw the bar move at over 2500 Rpms smh basically like 3k Rpms. So I need to go through and adjust this stuff. Just need to re read this 100 times hehe.

You can do it. Just be patient, as sometimes you have it adjusted perfectly and as you tighten the screws down, the adjsutment is thrown off.

Just be ready to loosen them just slightly and use light taps with your finger or a soft tool to fine-tune the adjustment. But it's totally doable.

I did mine today, but haven't test ridden it.

I've only had the bike a week, but it did feel jerky off the mark, wasn't sure if it was just because I've not ridden a big twin for a while.

When I had it in dealer mode the little line was at the bottom, even if revved up. Does this mean the bike would have been running really bad?

It didn't seem to like being below 4k but wasn't sure if that was chudder related so I'm hoping for a nice test ride

I ended up moving the TPS a couple of mm counter clockwise, then tapping it slightly back again, seemed to do the trick but we shall see

Adjusted the TPS on my '06. I installed a Suzuki dealer mode switch I bought last year and zip-tied it to the cable guide for the seat lock underneath the passenger seat. The top line was way off like lots of others at about 2,200 RPM. After lots of fiddling and tapping the TPS, got the top line to move spot on at 1450 RPM. The best way I found to keep the TPS in the desired range was to slowly tighten the lower bolt first then slowly tighten the top one while rechecking the movement of the top line and tapping up or down to keep it where it needed to be. It worked like a charm and really made a big difference in low RPM running in heavy traffic.

I did mine, but it moves from the middle line to the top line at 3000rpm. Will give it another go once I have changed the coolant

Pictorial of the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) Modification

I did this today...

The idle was down to 800rpm after putting the baffles in the Pipe Works shorty cans - it was open pipe Harley LOUD.
It was sneezing like a cat on downhill throttle off and roll-ons - cat-choo - ran kinda gross - was lumpy and grumpy.
I put the idle up to 1100rpm -ish...
Next tried the TPS setting and it was not going up top until 3000rpm.
I setup the TPS to go up just off idle - 1400-ish and locked it up.

The feeling and throttle response is so much better, no more struggle, it likes the extra fuel.
No sneeze, no pop, no bang...
Idles sweet, pulls from down low, no problemo.

Very nice change for the better.
Makes me wonder what the previous owners were doing, other than cosmetic tuning?

I like it - nice and sweet
