Default Question about a 2000 SC

I own a 2000 SC that has a D&D up swept pipe and a performance chip and thatís the only mods. I know of. She has a little over 64000 mi. on her and for the most part still runs great. She had 4000 when I bought her in 2003.

A couple of months ago she started spitting, sputtering and backfiring really bad. I had this same problem a long time ago and it turned out to be the TPS, so I went to NAPA and got a new one, an echlin # 2-19187. Iím wondering if this is the right one because up until I changed it out my bike always ran a little rich and now sheís running very lean, I can tell cause the the rear pipe is getting very discolored by the heat. I also live near Wilmington, NC and it gets hot here in the summer. The bike runs fine when I first start it up but if the temps around 85 or higher and I ride for a while then stop for a little, sometimes when I go to start up it will misfire, spit, sputter and Iíll have to shut her down. Then if I let her sit and cool off for about 45 mins to an hr I can start her up and ride like normal. Also, I never had this problem before I put this TPS on the bike.

Iím wondering if this is because when I installed the new TPS it changed the fuel mapping or something. There is a Vic dealer here in Wilmington but I donít necessarily trust them. So Iím hoping I can get a little advise from someone out there and find out what I need to do to fix this. Thanks for any help you can give me.

While most of the time you can get away without having to do it. You need to adjust the TPS to compensate for resistance variance in thias sensor

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Kevinx, I was hoping you'd reply thank you. I noticed when I put the TPS on there really wasn't any adjustment to it. How do I go about this because I really don't know.
An anyone out there that wants to start with the comments about not knowing what I'm doing go right ahead I'm a big boy
