TPS Adjustment

I finally checked the TPS voltages on my CA model bike today. Still aligned with the factory mark, i've got 1.02v idle and 4.31v WOT on a cold engine. These are higher than what I see most people are bringing theirs UP to. Is there any advantage to lowering these, such as better fuel economy, or does it not make much of a difference and just leave them be?

Check the User Manual. But increasing the idle voltage to 1.06 made a noticeable improvement on my 09V.

There a good thread on this topic.

I believe the measurement needs to be taken on a hot engine. This is because the fast idle mode will be activated which hold the throttle open slightly. Thus affecting your idle reading, also it is good to warm the bike up to check your idle speed. A small change in idle speed can really affect this measurement (idle speed should be 1300 rpm)
