Having a wee issue when it comes to doing the basic setup on the tb's, I've slackened off the fast idle screw etc, plugged in the diag wire and it originally read -1 in the dash, so I undone the tps and adjusted it to get it to zero. Problem is that I have maxed out on the tps and I I can only get it to read 1 and not the magic zero setting. Is the tps up the shoot or is there something else I can do??

I presume there are tps test measurements ?

there was when I was trying to re wire an apexi ecu into my death sled . But that was another mission in its self - poorly translated pin out diagrams had me going barmy....

decided to have another stab at throttle bodies yesterday, got the magic zero setting after a bit of faffingClap
 
i ended up taking the tb's off and give them a thorough clean out because ( this time i was adjusting the tps from the l/hand side of the bike ) i noticed tape around x1 wire of the tps wire... thinking wtf??? so i unravelled it and found the wires only hanging on by a few strands AngryAngry 
 
out with the soldering iron and heat shrink today!

im going to do the home made jobby of the evo airbox , i have already purchased another airbox top half ( £10 delivered ) to chop up , was going to do what someone on here did by means of retaining the airfilter with some of the lid - the thing i would like to know is if anyone has any pics/ dimensions of how much of the front part of the lid i need to chop off to bolt to the front end of the lower airbox before i put the door seal on??
 
i.e. a pic of the mod without the seal on should be enough i reckon if its a good enough pic.
 
getting quite excited about working on the ape as its off the road untill better days arrive! hence my lack of appearance on here lol

I did that.  No pics though.  On a mates RSVR....which is in Lancaster now.

If you look at the lid from the top at the screw points you will see screw retainers, about 10mm high as part of the lid.  I used this as a guide to cut around the edge, to ensure there was enough plastic strength to hold down the rubber.
If you flip it over and look to the front, you will see fins, these press against the air filter frame.  Cut up to these so you can still hold down the air filter.  Notice how the airfilter is only retained by 2 screws at the back end towards the throttle bodies.  The plastic frame around the filter flops about at the front.  The idea is to hold this in place with the airbox, using the fins...so this is your guide when cutting from left to right across the front.

At the back left corner is the oil foam thing where the little foam oil breather sits.  I cut this to its full height so the foam oil filter would not come out, basically cut up from the 10mm edge to retain the lid at this point.

My choice tool for cutting...and angle grinder and a very steady hand!

If you can make sense of this your doing well!!

I didnt realise the thread badgers box was all about this mod.....
 
the yellow prilla - ( bollockchops alius ) has done it the way i intend and i actually got one of his pics from a google search but on here it shows his second pic where it is clear enough to cut the front part. my choice of weapon will be my dremel i think plus the nice plastic cuttin bits i got with it.
 
ill post up pic of my nicely fekked up tps plug later!
 
taa for input chaps :-)

steve zx7rr - yea modded pipes are on my to do too- already bought a 2nd hand set of header pipes for 20 or 30 quid, they will be getting the extra tubes welded on and a nice polish up with my kit ;-)
 
i thought with the bigger tb's ( im presuming you are using 57mm jobbies ) you only got worthwhile gains with more in depth work ? i.e head porting , big bore etc ?

hi pete griff put 57s on mine about 4 years ago and i gained around 3bhp which isn't a lot but since then i have had it big bored so they really helped more with that.Nearly forgot mine's a 2000 model so maybe if you have a later model with the different heads it might help more.
