    The 4 M3 screws are for securing the butterfly plate to the spindle. After screwing them in, put the M3 nuts on the other end. Last step is to punch the threaded end of the M3 screws in a "+" pattern, in order to prevent accidentally fallen of the nuts in the engine. I doubt that this will ever happen, but it is just a safety measure. Also, when punching, remember to put something to hold back on the screw, otherwise the shaft might bend!

    The 2 small o-rings are for replacing the ones on your BBS (idle brass screws) in case they are worn.

    If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask me.

    Thanks,
    Dan.

    Re-hauling on my GSA, 2004 finished. The kit is really perfect, and everything fits like it suppose to be.
    I have one more question for you Dan:
    Left throttle body does not have the thin washer plate which comes from the engine side-opposite the TPS. It is only one washer on the left TB-thick one which goes after c-clip. Am I right?
    But I didn't find the thin washer plate on the right throttle body as well. Only the thick one, which comes from the side opposite the pulley. Is that ok, or someone who has work on the right TB before me, forgot to put the thin washer before installing the pulley on the shaft?
    I'm little bit confused, because your photos show that on the right TB should be 2 washer plates.
    Please for help.
    Thank you in advance.

    Please ignore the washer in my pictorial. I was using there another set of TB's, from another bike, from another year. There are different mountings between the same bike model and different years. If you put in what was initially was in minus my kit, and there are no left overs, you are good to go :D

    Sure, no problem.

    Whenever someone has a problem or a question, please let me know. The important thing is to get the job well done in the first place ;)

    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.

    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,

    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. :clap 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.
