Picked up a power commander for my bike. Plan on installing it this weekend. I am not sure on the TPS. Can some send a pic or tell me exactly where it is. Any other info on installing would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Ed

Nothing personal but if you can't find the TPS I think I would take it to a mechanic. Installing the PC is only part of the job, to do it right you need some dyno time.
It might be better and cheaper in the long run to sell the PC and buy a DP ECU.

Left side of the TB assembly. Black, rounded cover, with a electrical connection/boot on the bottom end.

Here's is a link only to show you a pic. I don't know how relavent the article details are to you:

It is going to the shop to be Dyno Jus trying to save some time. As to selling it there is no plan. Have a DP ECU already and te bike is running lean So I do need it to properly map the bike.

Basically, it's the opposite side of where the throttle cable is connected. It measures THROTTLE POSITION, so it's on the shaft where the FI throttle plates are ...

Good job Bandited, I bow to your skills. I've seen too many horror stories when someone jumps in over their head. When you asked where is the TPS I thought we were about to see another....
It was nothing personal, just a word of caution.
Good luck!

Congrats on the install!
And you've probably read the directions on functionality. If you load a "zero map", it's the same as the map that's in the ECU. The PCIII doesn't add or subtract any fuel.

So if you want to start somewhere, you could load one of the maps in the sticky area, to give you "something" different than a zero map. But, ultimately, a dyno-tuned PCIII is the thing to have for your machine.

It is going in on Friday to be Dyno. Thank you all for your help.
