Just wondering it it would be possible to make a swtich for the TPS to turn it on and off depending on the conidtion WHILE the bike was running.  I ride a lot of trails that are interconnected by roads and gravel roads and thinking the TPS would be nice to diable while connecting trail and use it while on the trail. 

 

Any thoughts?

I wished I had that feature.  This has come up before and someone said the bike would have to be power cycled to switch back and forth. If that's true it's absolutely not a big deal. If you do pursue it and make a plug and play version... hollar,..... I want one. I'm not that savvy enough to create such a thing.

Sounds doable, maybe a double pole single throw switch or something like that.

The switch would not be a problem.  I was just wondering what the ECU would do having the signal interupted or reinstated during operation.  would hate to fry the ECU throwing the switch.

I don't think you will fry the black box. But a very good upgrade would be to replace it in any case with a Dynatek ignition. You get rid of the studder and leave the TPS plugged in.
