Don't do it!!!! I had mine changed after the original recall, then had a problem with the new one. Bike stalled when I started off on a tight left had turn. Just about the time I put my feet up on the pegs, it stalled slamming the bike to the ground. Yamaha stood behind replacing the TPS and about $1,200.00 in plastic.

Was this due to a bad "new" TPS, or the installation?

I just got a call from my dealer and they said, "Hey, do you still have that '03 FJR? There is a recall for the TPS."

Told them the bike runs fine, wasn't sure if I wanted to take a chance of a replacement TPS as I had heard others having problems afterwards, but decided to have them order the part and have it done in the very near future. After seeing this post from Dugman has me thinking twice-if it isn't broke, don't "fix" it?

xcsp,

As long as yours is doing fine...keep it in. Then when you need one, then do the Recall.

They did mine (was OK) with a new one and the fuel mileage dropped and would not give me the old one as a backup.

The way you will know you need one, is when the Throttle will exhibit some dead spots.

Huh? blink.gif

Are you sure? That doesn't make any sense, unless maybe they misaligned it when they put it in. Have you checked the DIAG screen for the fully open and closed values?

Same here! I called the phone number in post #1, gave the chick my Vin # and she told me it has already been done, the date it was done and the dealership who performed it.

Pretty cool!
A lie, well told and stuck to....good as the truth!
