Sorry, a little boring last night. I just put on a new pair of M403/M404 and changed the oil.

However, last week I put on the new IMS tank. Pretty good kit overall. Fit was generally good with a minimum of little tweaks to get it right. Other than the seat foam, the bike is pretty much done.

I christen thee G2 (Garthok 2)!

trailhead :)

OK. Bike starts great, no choke required. Pulls like it is in stage 5 afterburner. But... when cruising at 1/4 throttle, it sputters, stumbles. Add gas, pulls like a champ. Let off, good. Hold it at 1/4 throttle, it stumbles. Thoughts??? I paid the dealer $300 to put the AIS kit in, sure hoping to not have to do that again.

You can imagine what I did to my bike when you look at just a section of the damage done to myself...

Trying to act like I have a supermoto with knobbies. Not a good idea as you can see. My hip is pretty tweaked right now.

Motorcycle Superstore for the Yellow Plastics. MX Graphics for the decals. I had a picture of Hannah on my wall for years when I was young. Wanted a YZ 80 so bad but my Dad always told me I needed a motorcycle like I needed a "hole in the head". Always loved the Yellow/black color scheme of the old YZ's. Not sure why Yamaha moved away from it...'

Bumped my TPS voltage up from .69 ( dead middle of the range ) to .78 ( maximum in the range )
in hopes of curing my rediculous/dangerous surge from 1/16th to 1/8h throttle opening.

Have to wait to test it out till I go riding because, I seem to have really bad luck with cops driving
down my street as soon as I leave the driveway ! :) One to many really close calls is all I can say.

I've been pulling my hair out trying to beat this TPS stutter. After reading the specs on the voltage coming out of this sensor I started thinking how a small amount of resistance would change the results. The last time I changed jetting I applied electric grease to the TPS connector. It may have been the problem. I cleaned the connector removing all of the lube. The stutter is gone. Rode for a couple hours today and not one stumble. If you are fighting this problem, give this solution a try. It was much easier than setting the TPS on this '08 Aluminum framed WR.

Make sure there isn't any electric grease on the connector. That is what was causing my motor stutter. I think the low voltage is restricted by the lube.
