Other than when I did it I caught my leg on it and ripped it off. Other than that it was ok. I ended reconnecting it though.

I didn't like the bike response when I unplugged it, seemed not as punchy, so went back to having it on.

This is just one mans opinion of course... But these guys know their stuff pretty well from what I've seen.

cool page ovrrdrive. Seems a lot of people think it does way more and magically produces HP :cry:

markit, where did you get your bike dyno'ed after you disconnected the tps? 5 HP is a big jump. If you spend money to bore, port & polish, change cams, remap ignition, re-jet, use the powernow system, new exhaust and run race gas I can see getting a good gain in HP out but, not from unplugging something that changes the timing so :cry: back at you
