that is not the tps calibration. the 15 min idle is just a adaptation reset....wont do much. to do it just go out to a stone cold bike start it and let it idle for 15 mins do not touch anything but the starter. do not touch the throttle at all for 15mins... the motor has to be stone cold for this.

tps calibration has to be done with a laptop and tuneecu. or the dealer.

opening and closing the throttle is not the calibration it needs.

In fact it has a screw. If you buy a Vortex ECU, you have to turn up the idle. Mine was modified to be adjusted without opening anything. The question is what would happen if you adjust it with the stock ECU?

Might have to reset the TPS ???? The only way to find out is to try

Most likely. In any case, before stuffing around with the ECU, I'd check TPS voltage.

I got an email from Norm at Kouba on the link part numbers. We are on the same page now. At least on the numbers.
I do think he is over thinking this a whole bunch.
Funny how Engineer types do that. I deal with these guys all day long. Have no concept of K.I.S.S.

Well at least if we end up with a stronger piece I'm good.

Probably because he's a Vendor though I don't know that. Sucks because now we'll all ask the same questions of him via email and I won't see the answers to the questions I never thought of that seem to always be relevant. I refuse to use Facebook.

I enjoyed his posts here on the Wunderfest and in the other 690 related threads, but all to often he was touting his latest creations....to sell....instead of letting everyone know on a Vendor thread.

Hopefully the mods will let him back on if he promises to keep the posts in the Vendor Thread.

I did however wonder how long they'd let the guy continue to post where he was trying to sell something in non vendor threads.

I completely agree with this and do hope a mod is looking. If would be good to get him back soon.

Did he recently post up something that got deleted? I haven't noticed anything recently. Maybe it was just a cumulative thing and a cranky mod.

Edit: I just took a look. It seems like all discussions from last month related to the RR Shock upgrades have been punted. Not just the posts by KTMmitch. Maybe I should restrain from further comment for fear of being banned too. Or better yet, they will just delete the entire thread like last time.

Ktmmitch was banned from thumpers, or from adv? If there's a vender thread, that would be cool, cuz I could lurk there. And dream of spending cash I dint have.

The new long travel suspension seems to be working just fine.
