    Six5, a few months ago you helped me identify that my IAP sensor was the wrong part completely... from some other motorcycle. After getting the right IAPS on my TLR, the low RPM issues improved a LOT! However, the problem is still there. I wish I could sit down and talk with the guy who took the bike apart and find out exactly what went wrong. Might save me some time.
    I've done the airbox mod. I was hoping removing the flappers would fix the problem. But I've already run the bike without the airbox at all and the problem is still there. I will update y'all after I get the TB sync and TPS adjusted.
    I'm hoping, with the assistance of the forum members here, I can systematically attack this problem and fix it. Thanks for all your help!

    As for the TB sync tool.
    Go to a doller store & buy a cheap qrt of Transmission Fluid.
    I tried using anti freeze, because it was Years since I was going to attempt to make one & forgot which to use.
    Anti freeze is too thin & harder to read Or keep from getting sucked into the TB's.

    Heres the exact one I copied.

    & yes, a TPS & TB sync can have that much of an impact.
    you'll see when adjusting it yourself.
    that backfire into the TBs will switch TB's if you adjust it enough the opposite way. (it did for mine)

    As for injector cleaning at a shop.
    Mine only charged me $20.

    & if its a TPS issue.
    These guys showed me a thread on how to clean the inside of the TPS.
    I lost all my bookmarked links tho, when my computer crashed.

    I've been through every single thread I can find like this when I was having my problem.
    & I dont recall reading of Any TLR's having ECU problems like mine & other TLS's.
    (if the experts want to confirm)
    so thats probably some good news vs my prior headaches.

    Each TB has three vacuum ports.
    It doesn't matter which vacuum port you use. Just be sure the other two ports have something on them - a hose or a cap.

    Well, I am going out of my mind!!

    As recommended on the TLR I was going to do the TB sync before TPS. I used a wide yard stick, I bought some hard, 1/4", plastic ice machine tubing (should have got something softer) taped it up both sides. I glued in (5-min epoxy) some metal connectors and used some extra vac hose from my airbox hack job to connect to the nipples. I did this in hopes of ensuring no air leaks during the sync. I put about 10cc of 2-cycle engine oil in the tubing and let it set over night to level out. It poured in WAY too slowly and stuck to the side of the tubing where I poured it in. Maybe the weather was too cold for 2-cycle engine oil. I performed the TB sync the next day (50 degrees outside) and it wasn't what I expected. All the videos I've seen show the fluid bouncing up and down but both sides stay the same until adjustments are made. In my tubing, the 2-cycle engine oil was constantly climbing up on one side and dropping on the other side. When I adjusted the TB sync screw, the fluid would start dropping on the high side and climbing on the other. I made adjustments for what seemed like 20 minutes until I got the fluid to stop climbing/dropping on both sides with the fluid level on both sides. Keep in mind, the bike is running VERY poorly and backfiring/misfiring the entire time. I can't hardly get the bike to idle at 1200 RPM's like you're supposed to. Anything under 2k RPM's and the bike dies.
    TB sync complete, I decide to put all the hoses back where they go and put the airbox back in place just to see if it runs any better.
    NOW... I have a bright yellow popcorn machine in the garage! Backfiring or Misfiring every 2-3 seconds with a BIG bang every 15-20 seconds! I'm assuming it's running super rich because my clothes REAK of gas fumes just from standing near the bike at idle.
    So what was supposed to make my bike run smoother has now created a number of new problems. Here's a list of what changes I made over the last week or so to see if any of you can help me figure this out before I throw this bike in the river:
    1) First thing I did was the Airbox mod. I hacked away at both sides of the middle part that the air filter mounts onto. I removed the flappers. I left the metal actuators (or whatever they are) on top and just connected some vac hose between them. And I just connected the T-connector with a small loop of remaining vac hose that was running to the actuators originally. This is where the bike started running very poorly. After the "TB sync" I put all the vac hoses back where they were and put the airbox back together with no leftover screws. So I strongly believe the bike was put back together the way I got it (minus some plastic and vac hose from the airbox)
    2) I made the usual adjustments to the TB sync screw (the top one) until the fluid was balanced. However there's a strong possibility some 2-cycle engine oil was sucked into the front TB during the sync. There was still some fluid coating the side of the tubing where I poured in the fluid the night before.
    3) I attempted to adjust the fast-idle screw so the fast idle lever would be effective. I was hoping this would help me get better RPM control at idle.
    4) I used some WD-40 on the idle adjust knob (left side of bike, mounted to frame) in hopes of having better RPM control at idle.
    5) I put some electrical tape around the tip of the larger hose connected to the left underside of the airbox to try to keep it from cracking any further.

    That's really all I have done over the last week. As soon as I did the airbox mod I noticed the bike running poorly. But the airbox was off the bike at the time. So the only real difference was the T-connector connected to itself with the leftover vac hose. The only things I can think of that would contribute to this awful, impossible to idle, backfiring/misfiring mess of a bike are:
    1) Maybe some 2-cycle engine oil got into the front cylinder during the TB-sync. If so, is there any way to clean it out?
    2) Maybe (and I strongly doubt this) some 5-min epoxy cracked off and got sucked into the nipple on the front TB during the sync.
    3) Maybe I made a gross error putting the vac hoses back together and something is reversed or just not connected at all.

    I have no FI light, no error codes in "Dealer Mode". I have no idea what's wrong now. All I know is the bike is back together with no leftover pieces, and it's running 50x worse than before. I haven't even attempted the TPS because won't idle at 1200 RPM's anymore. Any input or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated before I start taking the bike apart again.

    the vac port closest to the motor is the most desirable cos others can be on the throttle plate parting line. 6-5

    Sorry to hear of your troubles malenurse. These TLs can be frustrating at times, and especially so when you are new to the game and don't understand how all the systems work together.

    For the moment, you will make more progress if you step away from it for a day or two and just think about what it's doing and what it needs to correct the problem.

    Still, a few suggestions came to mind for when you readdress it.

    First, the vacuum tool you put together reacts too slowly. It is not showing you what is really going on in the TBs. You'll need a thinner fluid.

    The backfiring and misfiring are likely because the TBs really are out of balance now. However, before you reattempt to balance them, go back to post #29 and do the test in the manual for the TPS and the IAP sensor. There is a reason the ECM is dumping too much fuel in, and these two sensors play a big part in how the ECM makes those decisions. You need to make sure these sensors are good, and the vacuum connections are tight and proper, or you'll just be wasting your time making adjustments.

    Remind me. Did you buy a new IAP sensor, or was it from a used TL?

    Redesign your vacuum tool.

    Measure the TPS carefully.

    Check all your vacuum connections again and compare them to the diagram in the manual. In section 4, page 20 something....

    #3 is the most likely one to have any impact on how it runs.

    It is running very poorly now because the TB balance is way off from where it was. Still, go back to post #29 and measure the TPS per the manual before you attempt anything else.

    the TPS is connected to the rear throttle body
    its function is not critical to the running of the bike really
    quite a way off is neither here nor there it just runs rich or lean.
    because it is on the rear body and the idle screw is on the front it will NEVER be right till the bodies are balanced.
    so hence you balance the bodies first.
    the IAP is critical cos it will never deliver accurate fuel mix in any range if its got a leaky hose. and it need a damper and a reservoir to ensure its not jumping all over the place.the damper is a fine hole in a restrictor in the hose..........
    So if you actually have a tap in one hose to the gauges if you are using a U tube assembly it does not matter what the viscosity is.
    thicker is fine.
    ever measured the viscosity of mercury?
    Its about setting the tap to damp the pulses and it doesn't matter what RPM you start at to do the balance.
    Start at 2000 and work your way down.
    In fact if its different at 2000 to idle then there is another problem with one of the throttle plate stop screws.
    the balance is far more critical at the running opening of the throttle than the idle position tho it should be identical if evrything is OK with the linkages.
    often its not.
    so if you have a choice of sync at idle or sync with the throttle suspended by the cables then you choose the one where its suspended by the cables cos that is how the bike is operated.....
    Clear?
    Now you understand why I don't get overly involved in helping with this.

    The IAP came from a used TL. But it improved my low RPM issues by about 50%. Its still tough to ride smooth under 35 mph. But much better than when first go the bike. Its just frustrating, after all the success and progress at improving the bike's performance, to take so many steps back. I'm sure checking vac lines and tb sync again will help. And TPS too once its idling right. I'll get back in there some day soon and start over. I'll keep y'all posted. Thank you all for the responses.

    I would also check the cutout switches by the clutch lever and the kickstand .Pull them out and spray some contact cleaner into the sockets .My bike was acting up one day ,started running very rough ,backfiring and dying out ,and it turned out there was crud in the clutch kill switch socket .I did my own throttle body sync ,the sync Guage I bought used mercury . There is a video for doing the throttle body sync and tps on youtube by the way or maybe youre already using that .You also haven't mentioned whether or not you changed out your fuel filter . Mind you ,I'm not a mechanic ,I'm just a concrete finisher .

    We can be trying at times. Still, it's good that you do get involved once in awhile Stu. It helps us think outside of the box.

    Well, no, I haven't measured the viscosity of mercury. So I googled it.

    http://www.engineeringtoolbox.com/ab...ds-d_1259.html

    Most of it is greek to me, but the chart labeled Liquids - Temperature and Dynamic Viscosity shows that olive oil is about 60 times more viscous than mercury at ~25 degrees C. And if I'm reading the color codes correctly, castor oil is about 600 times more viscous than mercury at the same temp.

    Addtionally, I've noticed that mercury does not have the property of adhering to the inside tube surface as oils do.

    The OP says he used "2-cycle engine oil" for his vacuum balance device, so it seems likely that the viscosity could have played a part in the slow reaction. Still, I'm not doubting your method, since you have actually used the "U tube" design, whereas I have not. Perhaps he merely needs a tap in one side as you say and it will work fine.


    It's unfortunate that we don't have a good sticky thread on TB balancing in the Frequent Mods Forum, in view of how often this discussion comes up. If a good reference were documented somewhere, I might be less inclined to give someone the wrong instructions next time.


    Stu, do you have something on your website that could be referenced? Then we could link to it?
