I had the battery disconnected on my K1300GT to attach some clearwater lights. When I reconnected the battery I did the TPS reset procedure like I did on my LT many times.. i.e. switch on the ignition (do not start engine), open and close the throttle 3 times, switch off ignition, switch ignition back on and start engine. After doing this the throttle response was obviously not in sync with throttle movement so I looked in the service manual for the procedure to reset the TPS in case it was different from the LT. I assume the TPS is what the manual refers to as the "throttle-valve potentiometer". It says it is not necessary to reset it because it is a "self-teaching system". Does anyone know how long it takes the computer to learn the correct throttle position. I have ridden it for over 100 miles since reconnecting the battery and it is still out of sync.
