The TPS is your Throttle Position Sensor,
you have two of them.
one on the front of the fuel rail, one at the back.
they're a small, black plastic do-hicky with a screw attaching it.
Also two wires coming out of it.
I'd loosen the screw and move it,
ever so slightly to see if it helps your idle,
if you get it where it'll idle, tighten the screw and
take her for a spin and see how she acts.

I will try that . I searched everywhere today for loose wire or vacuum pipe but nothing . Put gipro on neutral setting , secondaries back in plastic f.....g plenum back on . Hard to start and won't idle so holding throttle open and engine surges up and down . Have given it my best shot and thanks to all on here for help but booking in dealers tomorrow before I grow to hate such a great bike !

Right cancel that last message, erase it from history because now I love the Beast again!The bike is running like a dream and goes like a Bat out Of Hell I searched everywhere for loose wire, loose plug lead etc etc and found a vacuum pipe had come loose and had hidden itself. It caused the engine to surge and also the engine light was staying on and now thats gone off , so here is a very important lesson gentlemen, when you are looking to solve a problem check the simple things first and dont adopt a negative attitude like I did and thinking the worst! Once again thanks to all the guys on here for their suggestions, The Cat.

Glad it worked itself out TC. Been in those same situations a time or two and life is really good when you finally find the solution. Now go out and ride it..............

Heck yea Josey.
That parts a walk in the park.
I'll even make you a "holder" for your Gipro
we can put on then.
I'll do that today after church.
Think I'll bring my laptop to MV too
Maybe somebody can explain this TuneECU in person,
where I can see it and understand it...
But yea, I'm in and you won't even believe the difference.
like a whole different bike.
You WILL be pleased.

Don't forget we have some ridin' to do too. I'll bring you some enthusiasm in a mason jar for when we get done. Seriously probably just going with the GiPro and remove the secondaries to go along with the Cat bypass and TORs I already have, then the K & N's under a STOCK bear claw at a later date. No cuts here.

Gipro and secondaries

I have been having an issue with my R3T. When it's under load all seems fine but when the load is off (e.g. cruising at low speed with more or less not load such as through a slow zone or rounding a bend, or cruising at motorway speed with a strong tail wind) the bike runs rough. I surges and feels like it's missing or wanting to accelerate. It's no fun to ride.

The dealer changed the Throttle Position Sensor but it did not fix the problem. I checked for any pinched or blocked hoses to the Mass Airflow Sensor, cleaned, crimped and grease (dielectric) and reseated the coil wires. The problem didn't go away. It turned out to be the GI Pro unit. When I installed the unit (GI Pro w/ATRE) I set it to the recommended setting of "3". The problem disappeared as soon as I ran it on the setting of "-". Same issue on a setting of 4. So the unit works fine as a gear indicator but it would seem I can't use it for that power boost.

Unless...

I have removed the secondaries. I understood I could do this, install a Gipro and leave it at that. Do I need to do something else?

Thanks
