Default Throttle body adjustments by digital wrench

Soooo, my other thread was an attempt at finding what I might have done to cause my issues.... now I'm really confused!

the shop just explained to me that I may need a new throttle body because an adjustment they needed to make was out of spec...
this adjustment has fixed the erratic idle they claim but it has a value (-35) that means something is out of spec?????
what pray tell is he trying to tell me??

I didn't think throttle body's wore out but I guess the bushings in the flapper could wear out.

I've been cleaning my TB's with standard carb cleaner until a friend and mechanic recommended I use actual TB cleaning fluid. I didn't even know there was such a thing.

Amazingly it made a huge difference in how my 04 KP idles. In the past the I would have to use the idle increase lever on the left grip even when the bike sat for just 5 minutes. Now, after using the TB cleaner, I no longer need to increase the idle rpm speed. I can even let it sit for an hour or more in outside heat without needing to use the idle advance lever.

You may want to pick some up and clean your TB's with it to see if it makes as much difference for you. Apparently it dissolves junk/gunk/deposits in the TB the regular carb cleaner doesn't. There are different brands; here's just one.

I know this is easy for me to say. Why not get the bike put it in a truck and drive down to Kevinx. Or get the throttle body from dealer and overnight it to Kevinx and ask him to go thru it.
Your dealer sounds lazy and want the easy fix after they throw a bunch of parts at the bike.

Here's the problem...
If the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is bad, Victory won't sell you one, so you have to buy the whole throttle body.

If I'm not mistaken, the part is the same as most other bikes and you can likely buy one at NAPA for $35 or something stupid like that. It's just an ordinary TPS.

Another option would be an e-bay throttle body.

Maybe someone else will have better luck. It would great to have a source for that part down the road.
