# 60 IIRC

Follow the vacuum line from the underside of the throttle bodies to where it plugs into the sensors. I don't know what side of the throttle bodies they are on.

Here is a pic of one from my bike. See the line coming out of the intake tube going to the sensor on the frame rail.



Other side of bike



One more

The brass fitting being pointed at has a 1mm hole that gets clogged. Use some thing just a bit smaller than 1mm and clean the hole. One side is easy to get at the other not so much.

Update: so just calculated for last ride 20.16... mpg :( It sucks because I'm happy w/ how smooth and powerful it is. I've been reading that a lot of people who got good mpg's with stock map put slip on pipes had the bike prof. remapped and experienced mid 20's mileage. I guess re-setting to stock map would be the first step. If that doesn't help then it's on to more investigation. Anyone exp. remapping really screwing with economy??? What have people paid for professional remapping?

Ace Motorsports in Concord Ca, flashed mine with the Akra map before I bought a cable. It was $25 or $30 if my memory is correct. But they will only do a stock or Akra. And the custom map you have will be lost. If your in no hurry, when I get back next month. Ride on out to Antioch and I'll save your map and flash it with which ever you like.

DeepSea,

That would be awesome. I'm going to clean my sensors and intake stuff see if that helps, then move onto the stock map. I'm thinking of investing in a cheap PC to get tuneECU and cable (would want in eventually) but I still would need to learn how to use it correctly-Whole other story.....

Thanks for the help everyone!

Will send you a PM once I get back home.

It's pretty easy to use TuneECU. Just doing it the first time is intimidating. At least to me it was.

As far as cleaning the throttle bodies, what would you guys suggest? Carb cleaner? And what should I use for the sensors? Would Q-tips w/brake cleaner work? Thoughts? Also would anyone have a step by step for pulling the throttle body off the intake. (I know its simple but it my first time) :) Cherry poppin!

With Tuneecu (or 990 friend with tuneecu) check if O2's are off, set them on and testride. Test TB's synch and if no change, load stock map.

They can also be un-threaded from the intake tube and cleaned off the bike if you are so inclined.

Dont use the little cleaning tools they sell for torch tips. That will really screw it up.

That's about normal for a 990...950's have slightly more tank volume...

For reference I did a ride this week that was 176 miles from the last fuel stop. The low fuel light hasn't lit up yet.
About 1/2 of that distance was easy,fast dirt; the other half was pavement cruising at 70+ MPH.
