HOW-TO: 03+ SV650S TPS Adjustment - October 3, 2006, 12:53 PM

I just did this today- took about 30 minutes. Well worth it if you find yourself in 5 mph traffic often, it will take away that off idle bog.

On another note- make sure your kickstand is ALL THE WAY down when you take your bike off a rear stand...I almost dumped my bike into my roommates new car. Not good.

Did/have you noticed a "night and day" kind of difference? I'm kind of curious about this, but I've never noticed an unruly bog a low speeds either...

Not a huge difference no, but noticeable. I used to think that I needed to adjust my throttle cables because sometimes when I would go over speed bumbs I would let the clutch back out and roll on the throttle but wouldn't really go anywhere for a fraction of a second, same thing in slow traffic. But I measured the play on the throttle and it seemed fine so I figured I should just give it a little more gas. Came across that thread yesterday and gave it a shot. I only had to adjust the TPS about 1 mm forward -there should be a line painted across the TPS and the mount so it is easy to put back if you don't like it. My bike now feels smoother as I am getting back on the throttle- again it just felt like I would have to wait like .2 seconds before the power came up. My bike does have 10k miles though. Let me know what you decide.
