True...I'm new around here, but already very happy about the wealth of info shared here.
I really didn't want to overstate the difference in the bike after the TPS was replaced, but there really were a handful of other things I couldn't put my finger on...where the bike felt "funny".
All of those were gone, and obviously so during the first few seconds as I pulled out onto the road from the dealer. Throttle roll off was a big one that was much smoother in the ride. Slow rolling in first at idle was more intuitive. I still can't even begin to explain the differences. Just smoother all over. It was nice to finally garage the thing knowing it was running just as good an hour later as it was when I started it. That's a first for this bike. I bought it used from an individual a couple of months ago, and it has had small issues from the beginning...which were turning into bigger issues. It looks like we've got it all figured out now. And with what I gave for it, combined with what I've put into it, I'm still in good shape. A lot of bike for the money.

People think I am too patronizing. (That means I treat them as if they're stupid.)
