Do I need a tps sensor?

Recommended Posts

There is no proven difference without it.

Having seen people respond that the TPS is not needed these past years, I guess I'll finally ask, why is there one to begin with? Just curious!

I have noticed that my bike (07 sm) has more light throttle responce with it. If you want to see what it does to your bike start it up on choke and disconnect it and watch the idle drop a few hundred rpm as the module goes into a different curve, I think. I get real good mileage (65mpg+) back and forth to work and this could be the reason. Good Luck, CFC

Simply stated the TPS functions much like the vacuum advance in cars, i.e. to increase the timing advance during part throttle operation. As the throttle is opened up the TPS added advance is gradually reduced in order to curtail detonation.
