The TPS adjustment thread

Recommended Posts

Calm down Steve, adjust shocks for your weight, change gearing, desmog, change tps and ride.you can make adjustments and add ons if you feel the need to after that.......... I promise you, the bike won't be restricting you.........you'll be holding the bike back

Lol.... ok ok. I get it. I know the bike rides great already. I'm trying to do it all at once and forgetting to just go ride.

Thanks

Yep - go ride 1st - you will not know what you have or really want till seat time has clicked off. 

 

I had particular expectations I was trying to match my 05 450exc of over 10-years of tweaking motor wise in the lower rpms.  

 

in hindsight I wish I had a bit more patience and ride time before I went balls out ADD with mine.     

 

And yes - of course I got a clutch weight too :lol: - I think it works as expected, but I need to pull it out and see if it's me or the idle.

In theory it acts like a flywheel weight as long as the clutch is engaged.  Assists with lower RPM operations, raise the stall point.

 

Tip - when adjusting the idle, think backwards of a carb.  turn the knob out for higher / turn the knob in for lower, you may need to up your idle a couple clicks after a TPS adjust if you notice a lower idle. Or if you notice excessive stalling in the dirt.

The fuel injection does take altitude into consideration automatically so I doubt you will need to re-adjust the TPS when you change altitude.  It wouldn't hurt to bring it with you and experiment, but I would not expect any changes to be necessary. 

My bike ran quite eradic at alttiude above 9k until remap to eu, but tps adjustment does help

Ok, I realize I may be one of the first here to be getting ahold of a 2017 Husky, but figured I'd throw a line out anyway... Was planning to do this as soon as I take delivery of my FE501 (hopefully by the end of January). Can anybody tell me if Model 1 will work with the 2017 Husky FEs? From what I've read, they've changed the engine quite a bit, but haven't found any specifics. Want to pick one of these up now, but need to make sure it'll work. I would appreciate any info. Thanks!

 

I'd like to know, too!  Got my bike last week and would love to adjust the TPS.  Definitely different plug from last generation.

@RallyMoto, check your PM's.

 

All, I know the 2017 350EXC requires Model-3 (at www.tpstool.com), I'm not sure if the other 2017 models use the same plug or not.  If someone can post pictures of the TPS plug then I can say for sure.

Yep that looks like the model-3 to me too, thanks for posting the picture!  I wonder if the 500EXC has the same TPS also?  

 

Model-3:

Would the first person with a 2017 500exc please contact me, or post a TPS plug picture here?  

 

How's this? To get much better would require disassembly and I've got 2 sleds to work on this morning, lol

Picked up my new 17' 500 Saturday also. I will try and get the plug out and a good photo by this evening. Let me know if there is anything else.

Anyone get their 450/501 2017 TPS cover off? It's looking like you have to pull the throttle body to me. Frame and harness are in the way of getting the top screw out.

Currently beating my head against the wall with the same issue. Trying to get the connector apart with the cover in place isn't happening.
