Glad I was of some help. Not often I am. I'm usually the one who needs the help. BTW, love those slashed pipes. Thats what I want for mine. 725.00 on ebay. How do they sound?

I love the pipes, I think they look awesome and sound awesome. They're pretty loud too. They were chrome once, but they were discolored even when I bought the bike. I got tired of gold pipes so I wrapped them lol. What brand are the ones you found on eBay? And are they used or new?

I've swapped out throttle bodies with the air box in before. When I get home I'll take a look to see if I remember how I did it. Wanna say when you unbolt the box you should be able to move the TB and get to the TPS easier.

The ones I found were the RPW, brand new. I currently have a set of double D slip ons that sound pretty good, but love the slashed look. 800 bucks is alot to spend though....for a guy on a tight budget that is. LOL.

Riding varies but you can roll from March to November with gear. My brother rode year round for a awhile. Hunting wise, to my understanding it is pretty good. You've got deer, turkey, and boar. I don't have the time to get out for hunting. You will, I know for sure, enjoy the riding. Give me a shout when you get here. I'm 2 hours of very nice road from Chattanooga.

Will do! Actually we are also considering the Cookeville area as well. What do you think is the more family friendly area? Will be looking for riding partners!

The airbox on my bike isn't the stock one, all I have to do is unbolt it from the tb and it comes right off. I'll get a picture of it when I pull it off, maybe someone can tell me what it is

Well I put the new sensor on, did the throttle reset, now it runs like ****. Worse than before. It'll barely even idle. Any ideas? Only thing I can think is I got a bad sensor

It doesn't have tubes in it, it's open inside. I reckon I'll go into work tomorrow early, had to leave the bike there, and put the old sensor back on and see what it does. Kind of a buzzkill, it's supposed to be nice this weekend:(

I went to go put the old sensor back on and noticed a broken wire on the map sensor. Fixed the wire, and it helped a little but it still ain't right. I'll put the old sensor back on when I can and go from there

Sounds like you got my kinda luck. Yea I would double check connections and all that...but also make sure those little rubber nipple things are on the the throttle body and it aint sucking air.
