TPS blanking plate

Hello all,'ve been running my 04 790 bonneville with the TPS disconnected for some time, obviously not really needed..was thinking of removing the TPS from the carb to tidy it up a bit but, am unable to locate a blanking plate, can anybody steer me in the right direction?? Please

I bought mine from here:https://lcfabrications.com/collections/modern-triumph

I'm glad I removed it also, what's an extension cord doing hanging off a fine set of carbs??

If you are handy - Have you thought about making your own cover? You can use the TPS as a template.

The LC TPS cover is also sold through this Italian outfit at € 25.21, they'll post to the UK, although I've tried to calculate the shipping costs with their post calculator using UK---Wales---Swansea SA1 post code, and the shipping comes out at €17.81 which seems a bit steep for something that weighs 100 grams, but much better than $120...

The best way to get a small part like that is to have a private buyer in the US get it and send it to you. I'd guess that the cost for a small parcel like that would be $15, plus the shipping cost of getting it from the American vendor to the American buyer, probably would be in the $4-$7 range. I've done this a couple times in the past for other Rats.

Considering all that, it would be hard to beat the price Forchetto found from the Italian vendor, about £18.
