  • Throttle positioning sensor?

    I'm going to have Duke do my TPS on my HSR42 - I was just going to order a new one but they are $150 on RRP. I'm not opposed to just buying one, especially since my stock carb is 19 years old. But, the question is, do they actually wear out and it would be fine to use the one on the stock carb or is buying new the best choice? What say you?

    2000 Roadstar 1600 - BAK, Pumpless, Curt's manifold, Mikuni HSR42 Freedom Combat Pipes Jumbo Strong bags, PPG 'HellFire' Paint.

      I just bought a stock Roadstar carb with 25k miles on it complete for $50.....I sure as shit would not spend $150 on one tiny little piece that wasn't broken.

        Jaybo, the Suzuki SV650,SV1000, and the V Storm TPS will work but you have to extend the wires. I'll get one off EBay that's going for $26.99 right now. I'll check it out and extend the wires.

        Just ordered,

        The TPS have a very good reliability record, and I haven't heard of any going bad.
