Just adjusted my TPS sensor using the awesome Suzuki test plug. Having the right tool for the job sure makes life easier. It was still a challenge because of the sensitivity of the adjustment. As someone else already noted, it jumps around as you tighten the locking screw. Took me plenty of tries to end up at.609. The factory setting was .592. Even tightened down, you can make the reading move a little by pushing on the sensor. Anyway, too wet to ride, but I did start it up. Came off of the enrichener faster than normal, felt like maybe it was spinning up faster when snapping the throttle. It's all seat of the pants until someone puts one on the dyno and fiddles with it.
What part of the map does the TPS sensor effect? Again, seat of the pants, feels like the effect we used to get by advancing the ignition timing a little back in the dark ages of carburetors
