Different...

Okay, mine's different... But okay. I guess.

I measured my voltage today. .53v - 3.67v smooth.

BUT!!! This was measured between the BLACK and YELLOW wires!!! (like adiablolex?)

I could not get a correct reading between the BLUE/BLACK or BLUE/YELLOW wires

2004 950 Adv. Mfg. 12 / 2003 if it matters to anyone...

I'm not sure what this means... But I'm puttin' her back together and moving on.

Yes, Black and Yellow wires on all KTM's.

The early manuals were worng with the Blue/Yellow.

I edited the original post above.

I'm having a surge at about 70 mph. The needle has been raised. I checked my TPS and got a reading of .562 closed and 3.72 WOT. At about half throttle the meter would say off or no reading. That would be about the 70 mph mark. Would you say the TPS is bad or do they all read like that? I am new to the 950 and am having to learn a lot.

The reading should be linear through the full range of throttle motion. No place should it drop to zero. make sure you are making good contact with the meter probes. You may have a faulty TPS. It happens.

Just for the record I set mine and it was black and yellow for an 04 harness.

Dragging this topic out again in the hopes that someone can help.

For as long as I can remember, my 950 has had the hesitation problem. I've owned it 6 years now and, early on, I thought it was a jetting issue. Then, when I switched to the FMF mufflers, I rejetted to accommodate them and hoped that the hesitation would go away. It didn't. I even recall riding with the choke slightly engaged and this seemed to help. Then I ran across the TPS setting issue. Well, I've finally gotten around to testing mine. I get 0 volts no matter what combination of wires I test. I thought that it was my meter so I checked the battery. The Shorai is reading 13.36V. That seems reasonable so I doubt that it's my meter. Maybe I wasn't getting a cood contact with the connectors so my next action was to pierce the wires with sewing pins to ensure a good contact and then test the pins. No dice. Still 0 volts for all wire combinations. Still thinking that I might have been suffering from bad connections to the leads on my meter, I actually stripped very small sections of the insulation off of each of the wires on the harness side of the connector. Still getting 0V on all wire combinations (blue/black, yellow/black, and blue/yellow).

I placed an order for a new TPS but have begun to second guess myself. I have a hard time believing that a bad TPS would cause this. Shouldn't a measurement taken between the blue and black wires show some voltage that doesn't change, even when the throttle is twisted?

Laugh Check Supply Voltage First

You may want to look up-stream of your TPS connector to see if/where you're getting/losing your reference voltage supply before you go ordering a new one... $$

The blue wire sends 5.0 volts from the ECU, and the Yellow wire returns the throttle postition (sweep) voltage you are looking for. The Black wire is the earth/ground side of the potentiometer windings. all on page 7-16 of the LC8 repair manual.
