I just got this bike last week, and do not have a repair manual or owner's manual. I have not checked the ohms on the TPS but I have read that a "bad" TPS would not cause high idling.

its a floating metal plate found on your carb slide. if you find a crac....its a must to replace it.

Any suggestions on a replacement (stock or aftermarket). Any thoughts on checking the motor, etc. for that broken piece?

Just to clear up (maybe): The 'air screw' you refere to is probably the fuel screw, if you were adjusting the little bitty screw in the recess on the underneath of the carb. If I'm worng, scuse me.
The "airscrew" os only such if you changed the Pilot Air Jet to an adjustable 'screw' one, which means messing with the innards of your carb.

But that leads me to a question. I would think that by letting the throttle slam shut (releasing the throttle grip) would be what causes the carb slide to weaken (continuously smacking the bottom of the carb), if so how would that have anything to do with not having a throttle stop? I can't see how increasing the throttle (twisting the grip open) causes the carb slide to weaken?
Oh, you were also right about the small screw on the bottom of the carb I was turning. I've yet to learn the correct terminology for all this "stuff".
