Another Satisfied Customer!

Just completed the install Dan and they're back to being nice and quiet thanks! I have a bit of a throttle issue, low speed, post install which is not related to the kit but probably the TPS or cables. I've posted the situation in Boxers for some input.

Thanks Dan for the great kit. Received it about ten days after ordering it. Dissassembly and reassembly went well, great instructions here.

For those going to buy a kit listen very carefully, I knew my rightside throttlebody was rattling and has been for the last two years since I bought the bike. I never bothered to listen to the left side. Guess what the first sound I heard on start up? Yep, next pay I'm buying a left side kit.

thicking noise

Hello Dan,

I'm the proud owner of a 03 r1150gs adv.
With a little over 100000kms on the clock i recently got some idling problems.
On my way to work today i could clearly hear some thicking noise comming from the lh cyl. No power loss or surge though. First thing i noticed was that the lh intake to head rubber has worn out. By reading this thread i found that the pulley(s) shouldnt have play on them. In my case they both have noticable play, the left one almost twice as much as the right one
Do you have any idea what causes the left one to wear faster?
I guess its time to overhaul the tb's?

Hi,

Not sure why the L/H side wears faster for your bike; usually it's the other way, the L/H side wears faster. But I had customers with bikes such as yours, so it's not mandatory for the R/H side to go bad first.

If there is play in both pulleys, I suggest you change them both.

Drop me a PM with the address you want the kits shipped to and I will let you know the shipping price.

Thanks,
Dan Cata

Yes, changing the throttle cables changes the way the bike feels by a lot! I recently changed them on my bike and love the way it feels.

Thanks,
Dan Cata

I am about to rebuild my throttle bodies and I like to print out the instructions from a PDF in booklet form (2 pages per sheet, double sided).

So I took Dan's awesome instructions in the first few posts and put them into a document, did a little formatting for graphic efficiency and Viola.

thought it might be helpful to others as well. Thanks Dan for the great instructions and a great kit. Can't wait to get my TBs rebuilt.

V1.02 now includes tips on removing shaft from pressed on pulleys.

For anyone else interested I did some research and found that Permatex (another brand of thread locker) is solvent safe according to their technical data sheets and application guide. Once it is cured it should not be affected by gasoline (manufacturers statement, not mine). They even indicate in the application chart it's use in throttle body screws/assembly etc.

Make your own decisions and decide if you want to or not, but I just felt more comfortable with a little thread lock on just to be extra safe. I wiped away any excess thread lock around the nut. I still peened (spelling) the end of the screw as per Dan's instructions. I just also applied some threadlock as well (a belt and suspenders if you will).

Is there anyone in the St Louis area that has completed this repair and is willing to mentor an ametuer?

Hi Dan....I've been reading this thread for several months and can't see if the price, $60.00 USD, is for one side or both. If it's already been made clear please accept my apologies.
My right side is really noisy and the left is about half way to the rattle of the right so I'm in need of both sides.....2004 R1150 GS.

As I am a snowbird, would it be cheaper and/or less time to ship to my Tucson, Arizona, address or my address in British Columbia, Canada?

Thanks Dan.

Casey
