So with the cloud still on the decks and the pilots doubtless in the bar I ventured back into the garage out of the drizzle to see about the fast idle. As I am still getting acquainted with this interesting Victory solution to mixing fuel with air I was still able to see that there was an overall lack of any lubricant on any of the complex of cables, springs and quadrants that make up the rear of the throttle body. Judicious use of light lubrication aerosol had things working much more smoothly and I was able to remove the fast idle cable, get some lube into that, it's a simple Bowden cable with no clever stuff going on in it, and then reset it with a couple of millimetres of slack. Now when I operate the fast idle lever there is an almost immediate movement from the quadrant. Only trial will tell but operating it and returning to its fully off position seemed to work reliably. So with the help of a torch, visibility really was poor today, I was able to explore the throttle body identifying the TPS on the front, the cross head idle screw adjuster at the rear for the quadrant and I was able to have a really good look at the rubber adapter thingummy that mates the throttle body to the metal induction tubes. The good news is that this imfamous item appears to be in really good condition with no damage, smooth surfaces and no evidence of abuse. No tearing or pulling apart. So I am going to put the tank back on after I have invested in a new set of plugs and run it to see if the combination of cleaned throttle bodies and new plugs makes a difference. An I think I have found a TPS supplier. More to follow if my source comes good. I shall have another go at uploading a photo or two.

Reason: Misspelt Imfamous!
