Re: Throttle Body Sync
Very interesting topic to me.
If you ask a dealer he will tell you no need and set from the factory.
Talk to a normal rider and he will repeat what he has heard, no need.
After using a very sophisticated FI controller on my Road Glide I am very aware of TPS and IAC in relation to AFR.
So other then the screw driver and wrench what gage is used to sync them. I have seen an add in BMWON for one I think?
Point is I want whatever it takes to do it.
End of this month I have 9 days to do my 12K, shock swap, and would love to have what I need to do this also.
At that point I would call out for a Learning Session to all in my area to do just the sync together and learn. I then would be willing to lend it out starting closest to home, then to all who would want to use it.
I am not looking for anything from it other then knowing it is correct.
AFR is so dependent on correct TPS and IAC that I just don't trust they are optimal. It would be worth it to me to buy the gage and send it off just to see where these things are set to and just how consistent, or inconsistent they are set.
Last question since #4 is the base, do you do 3-4, 2-3, and 1-2? Or do you stay on 4 for the entire sync, or does it mater?
