I took my carb out to re jet, and of course the TPS was removed to cook the carb. So, whats this thing all about on 99 400? Do I need it? Can I chop it? Or, do i have to go thru a painfull process to get it set properly again?

thanx yall

the tps is linked in no small way to your cdi. cut the tps and you'll probably end up with a large blue motorcycle shaped paperweight

The TPS increases part throttle advance. On my KTM 525 EXC, I played around with adjusting the TPS and even disconnecting it. The results were, at least by seat of the pants, no discernable differences at all.
