    Syncing TBs is just like syncing carbs. Same thing.

    Hey guys, I made a video to illustrate the issue I'm having. Does it look / sound familiar? Should I proceed with a throttle body sync?

    Thanks!

    Have you gotten the bike into diagnostic mode to check the TPS sensor and Accelerator sensor position?

    I use Carbtune Pro 4: https://www.amazon.com/CARBTUNE-PRO-4-W-Pouch/dp/B018UTHGPE

    My bike was doing the same thing you described with the high/low idle as well, but no starting issue.

    Is the programmer tied into any of the wires of the harness? I saw one which has you tie into the TPS with a funky wire tap.

    I'd pull it...

    It was at the dealership two weeks ago and they found a TPS error code, reset it and that was all they could do since the bike was not acting up when it was there and they could not recreate the issue.

    The Bazazz fuel controller has a harness that allows you to plug it in to the fuel injector. No cutting or splicing.

    The plot thickens! Oil from the throttle body port and in the air box overflow.

    I do have a BMC high flow filter if that matters. Maybe the oil in the overflow is from that.

    Not sure about the throttle body.

    The one from the air filter port is normal. Just cleaned mine out.

    Not sure on the throttle body.

    This sucks your bike is buggered, I was going to suggest an exhaust leak but watching the video, it looks like an FI issue. As for oil in the vacuum port cap, I could see oil vapor collecting there in the right conditions. His overflow was full and the excess goes into the air box and eventually sucked into the airstream.

    Have you disconnected the fuel controller and tried to run the engine stock?

    Can you adjust the idle on the Tenere? Is there an idle adjust screw or do you just tighten up the throttle cable to bump it up?

    I found this video, makes some sense. Taking it back to the dealer on Saturday. I'm to the point I want to get rid of the Bazazz fuel controller and hi-flow filter but keep the exhaust. I read many reports confirming adding an exhaust to this bike does not require a fuel controller.

    On a side note, I have decided to move to Western North Carolina at the end of September. Need to get the bike ready for some Fall riding in the Blue Ridge.

    When you say bump up the idle speed, is that done with the throttle body screw on the left side?
