    Scott, You also need to do the TPS reset after you complete the balance. In my opinion, the first TPS reset really isn't necessary. However the after Throttle Body Balance a TPS reset is critical as the TPS sensor is moved during the balancing procedure.

    Hi John,

    That’s in number 5. Maybe you didn’t see it?

    Opening an air bleed doesn’t move the TPS sensor or the adjusting plate so a TPS reset would be superfluous in number 6. Right?

    I think I got this right... Yes? No?

    Thanks again. Nice to see you well and around - or perhaps I should say, it's nice to be back around. Strange, I've missed this place. LOL

    Best Regards!

    I see that now. Sorry, I'm accustomed to writing procedures for soldiers. We never wrote long procedures in a single step but broke out each process. Never bury a critical step in a long paragraph. Break it out into a stand alone step. That last TPS reset is the critical step.

    You guys are absolutely bad asses. I wouldn't touch the throttle bodies myself. Thankfully, haven't had to. Outside of a fuel pipe replacement recently, I just wipe them down with a soft fuzzy cloth and talk very nicely to them both.....

    YES, yes it did help. And I've been to Guzzi factory technician school.
