  1. Tomorrow I'll try again,I doubt the tps sensor is bad unless I broke it over torquing it.The shaft is ok I played with that a while back trying to get an extra notch like a timing chain,however the tps is not in anyway similar to a timing chain.The wiring harness that I use I totally trust ,but I will check it just to see! thank for all you do.
  2. Took it all apart + the throttle blade is open all the way(87)-----volts are0.000 open/0.000 closed-------Mv are 381.0open/229.5 closed What's next to test ???
  3. Well boys,now are we havin fun!!! The tps is new with two miles on it----the one I replaced was nine months old with about 20 mi. on it,the 2 I bought came from ca cycle the other 3 came with the bike from the po,of those 1 was the Davidson type+ one I took apart just to see how easy it is to do-----trust me on this one it is very difficult to take apart. I sent to England for the tps cable testing harness,I think it would be difficult to screw that up ! My lovely ev has42000 mi.,of witch I did 10,000 myself,+I would guess was brokedown 12 times minimum (I've owned this magnificent machine 26
  4. Yes Phil youv"e got it!!! At wot I get o.ooov???? or about330mv ???---- I can adjust the stop screw cept the idle is very high(3000). Took it out today (2 miles)it ran ok,have to wait for warmer weather to road test----Now the tps is clockwise max +,seems to me it should be the other way about 10mm from the end going counter clock wise------confused yet???? thanks for your help
  5. I've worked all day on the tps---- I twisted the tps clockwise as far as possible + a little more,I got my 157.3 on the tps---I didn't fair so well with setting the stop screw,I gave it all it was good for but nowhere near the 378 I need. I started engine + found idle to be about 3k---turning left stop screw c/clockwise 4 turns put it close to1200 rpm as idle ----getting it sorted I think I've got it,until I can ride it I won't know for sure if its fixed. Last I checked tps was 220mv----It runs good in the garage I hope I cured the 6mp gallon problem. Thank you all for posting + yo
  6. Docc.I've tried that + it doesn't work. I'm thinking I'm rotating the tps too much at a time.I've had it set several times before but not this time.The tps should not be rotated to the max(I belive). Lucky Phil,I'll get back to you in a couple hours gstallons----- you hit the nail on
  7. I just finished this post + hit the wrong button so I would guess it's filed into cyberspace??? I'll make this one much shorter===98 EV seems I can't adjust tps to 157mv I only get 133 + run out of space.If I remove one holding screw from the tps I can squeek a little more assuming I settle on 133 I can only get about 330mv to set the throttle stop I should have 378mv here.Please take me by the hand + take me through this====I onl;y bite GUZZI'S nothing else,unlike my dog,thats a story for some other time!!! Thank you
  8. The speed-0 is just a plain one,no gps. I like to use the maps + stuff plus the fact i can't see the little square box that indicates everything.I had a horrorable time installing the Speed Hut stuff, if I was to do again I would rebuild the old gauges.However Speed Hut is very good about warranty work so what the hell. I am presently TRYING to figure out a way to install a fuel gauge----if it can be done I will use a Speed Hut gauge for that because they will custom build it for me. Have a great weekend Docc
  9. Hi Doc,you have an inquiring mind, 1st time both speed-o and tac had defective control board issues ----this time ,I don't know as yet,it's only been 6 weeks but,don't go away there's more -----both units do not light the face,the tac totally does not work,+something else I can't recall at the moment +one of the little square things that(do not) make the instruments light up,all but caught fire.I only have 4 years of warrantee left,I hope they can hurry !!! Other than that -----Life Is Good!!!!!
  10. I;ts Feb 20 now I've been practicing repairs since September on my loving 98ev. The main reason I couldn't start the engine was worn out plugs----I am currently on set #4 with zero miles----keep your eye on those plugs when working on the engine(ngk bpr6es).Also I've run out of gas 3 times while on the service rack(it seems impossible to start this way),no warning light---no reserve,it really is not hard to do!!! I've figured how to adjust the tps,it was difficult for many reason's but mainly cause I don't have a tac and with adjustment to the throttle body TOTALY out of adjustment when
  11. Is it possible to connect a fuel gauge to the in tank electric thermameister? Would it need a relay of some sort to give enough oompth to power the fuel gauge? ----- I have an inquiring mind,thank you !!!

  12. I did manage to start engine tho it will be a process to get it wright.The little red light does not work so I just wing it!The only electric tool I can use is a multimeter. Balancing the tb's is difficult with a manometer,regrettably I resort to the Twin Max till balance is somewhere near then I can use the manometer to get it right. Phase sensor was the main problem---then ecu connection+many many other problems that made this repair a night mare,all in all if I SQUINT I think I see light at tunnels end---thank all of you for your support.
  13. Thank you for replying to my post Mr.80cx-----fuel filter was replaced,fuel pump works fine,relays+fuses ok, side stand disconnected ,strong spark to plugs. Tps setup 150mv/375mv all connected not running (remember this is a 98 model/different from 99+years). The rpm sensor on flywheel was cleaned (one chunk of debris ) but not checked for mvolts . I'm going to check out the ecu as best I can,the po had issues with this bike before he dumped it on me so I feel it necessary to dig deeper. I would like to know more about a product from Australia called My ECU has anyone tried one ?
  14. I am having difficulty starting my loving EV+ could use some direction before it accidentally catches fire.The bike displayed every symptom of bad air temperature sensor----so I replaced it! Then it gave symptoms of bad phase sensor control,I tested it as best I could it was bad soooooo I replaced it.Every wire is connected as it should be,charger on battery to stay charged,one+half new plugs replaced,valves ok. I could start bike before + after changing out phase sensor but not for long as I was playing with tps adjustment.Tps is set about 150mv,to continue I must have engine running.Engine w
