TPS Adjustment question

Calling Invader. Been reading up on old threads and came up on this thread about TPS Adjustments:

I also have the low speed 'jump' when rolling back on the throttle after engine braking at lower RPMs and would like to do the adjustment. After locating the sub throttle sensor it appears to be set slightly clockwise from factory setting. I would like to rotate it slightly counter-clockwise as seen in the thread to see if that resolved my issue but cannot get to the torx screw to adjust it as it's covered by other components. I have 2012 model. I can take a picture tomorrow if this doesn't make sense.

Any advice you guys could give would be greatly appreciated. I apologize if this is a dumb question, unfortunately I am not very mechanically inclined. I'm trying to learn though.

You want to adjust the main throttle sensor which is below subthrottle sensor... You just need to semore the charcoal canister cover, etc to access the main throttle torx screw and refer to the green alignment mark on its front.

Start by setting it to ever so slightly counterclockwise of perfectly aligned with green reference mark.

I just looked in to my throttle sensors. Download the manual and check the threads here. There are ways of checking to see if the sensors are in spec. It seems like playing with these can have a major impact on the performance of the bike and that it takes only very small adjustments of the sensors to make a big difference in performance.
