You don't need to clean the newer throttle bodies. I think it's 2008-up they changed design so it's no longer required.

I cleaned it on my 2010 when I had the old airbox cut off.
There was a bit of darkening here and there that I removed with carby cleaner and a clean rag.
It was squeaky clean then...seems silly not to clean it up while its pulled down.

I presume you gave it a clean while you had it apart?

99 to 2007 you should do it maybe once every other year. Early models had blow by tube going to filter now it goes to frame and discharges

When I installed the TT then I only cleaned the throttle-body not the connecting tubed that were dirty, as the valves are down there and did not want any dust or rag piece falling in there.....

only 5 K on the counter I did not see the point of cleaning "inside" it but I would imagine after a few years I will when I take off the tank for some reason.

Cleaning the throttle body is fine BP6666VR, I wouldn't go any deeper into the inlet manifold either, just keep running on good clean fuel of the required octane, now you've got the TTI the only foreseeable reason to remove your tank is for fuel filter replacement a long way down the track at 30,000 miles I think they recommend?
sheeet Im only 7000 miles off that now!

That is what worries me the most "Motorbikerx" the fuel we are having is terrible.... I ran old landcruizers here on the island for mud-offroading and I had to change filters all the time, about 3 inline as 1 filter was not enough to remove dirt and water, ps 1 day in the jungle was about 80 Liters of fuel

For the Victory's we buy the most expensive fuel available and still I wonder if the filter would be blocked sooner then later.... I was even looking at JP websites for the future to remove the VIC-filter and just run external filters inline so i can see the dirt and or water that is captured into the glass inline fuel filters ...... any better ideas of bikers out there?? so the recommended changing of filters made me laugh what I read the manual purchasing the bike.

Not even to mention Octane... and our Victory's ride average on 1 liter = 14 Km so guessing the octane is not that high if even any available in the petrol we run?
