Just a thought, do you think I'm charging too much for the extra ones I made?
No, not at all. I was just asking as I was unaware Kawi no longer supplied them or what Kawi was even charging for them for when they did. You done a great job with this.

Excellent, I was getting a little worried it had got lost in the post.

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters and Country are more useful than saying the year, for UK owners anyway, as registration year is not always the year of manufacturer model.

Started bike up (had warmed it up before adjusting sensor) held bike at 3500revs(where stuttering started) and it still stuttered and backfired. Am I best to get a new tps? Or could it be something else. The engine wasnt under load just held revs at 3500 in the driveway? Any ideas??
when your cruising at 3500 as stated in previous posts what happens when you squeeze throttle open ,does it clean up or does it carry on doing the spluttering etc?

Hi alfadave11, if i squeeze the throttle it eventually coughs and takes off like a rocket. Iv put a new tps on (zx6 j1)and the bike is ticking over nicely. Had to do a bit of gentle adjustments to get it to tick over and rev ckeanly. Need to take it for a test ride.
