2008 CFR450R carburetor removal Q

Recommended Posts

DONT REMOVE THE TPS SENSOR FROM THE BODY OF THE CARB. I say this because:

1. you probably don't have the proper tools to do it correctly

2. you don't have the skill set to put it back where it needs to be

The TPS impacts the ignition map of the 02- to today's bike. This is a 3d ignition map. On the carbed bikes, you can end up in left field because you go it wrong.

My idle is too high? So you turn it down...but now it pings at low RPM..bigger jets....now it's lazy and smokes....jesus...I'm telling you, clean around it.

Also, set the idle speed with the idle speed screw, then the throttle cable play. The throttle doesn't set the idle speed, the idle speed screw on the carb does. The idle speed screw on the carb is not the fuel trim or pilot adjustment screw.

That's what I did yesterday, turn the idle setscrew a half turn out and it dropped to what I thought was a proper RPM.

I took the tank, seat and cable cover off today to look at the cables, but I could see that with the throttle at rest, there was free play before tension triggered throttle response, so I knew* i hadn't affected idle by a change in the cable position.
