To all of you that have not cleaned your throttle bodies in awhile I recommend you do. Cleaned them last night. Idles and runs incredible. Thought it was pretty good before now night and day

Where can we find instructions for cleaning throttle bodies? Inquiring minds want to know.

Forum threads, owners manual, or take off gas tank, remove air filter, use throttle body cleaner on closed throttle body using a soft cloth, gently open butterfly, clean again using cleaner ON the Cloth. I would not sprayer cleaner directly in or on throttle body or butterfly. Clean air filter ( I use S&S) replace, replace tank and you are good to go

Thanks Azdave. I read my manual cover to cover, but that was a while back. Sounds pretty simple.

As long as you bring up manual you can find them here and down load them to your computer. Then you will have the best of both worlds.
Not picking on "you" but from all that I have read every one knows how to ride but are lazy about finding things out about there bike.
True knowledge comes from reading not from hear say.
