2010 G5 idle adjustment
« on: November 16, 2010, 10:12:54 PM »
Greetings Gang. This site has been very helpful. I have a 2010 G5 with 725 miles, changed oil & filter with semi syn @ 300 mi., screen & filter covered with gray sealer/slime, then at 600mi with not so much crap on the screen. The bike seems to idle too high for my taste and I was wondering if there is a idle screw adjustment on the fuel injection? Looked for one, but me poor ole eyes can't connect. Had the bike about a month now and loving her more each ride. I appreciate all your comments, trials, tribulations that have been posted. Hopefully I've followed your advice and am continuing to break her in right. She sure is sweet!!!

Idle adjustment is the big flat brass screw behind the throttle assembly. It's facing upwards.  DON'T tamper with anything else down there or you WILL have to take it in for resetting. Plenty of previous posts dealing with this.

Welcome to the forum mugwomp! yeah these bikes bring you back to the reason you started riding in the first place don't they?

The video calls it the TPS - Throttle Position Sensor.  Is that correct?  Kevin mentioned earlier about not messing with it.  But does the video really show the idle adjuster?

If so, where is the TPS that we are not supposed to mess with?  Thanks.

@Prof:

Ignore the word 'TPS' in the video.  The brass screw shown in the video is Idle Air Bypass Screw and it adjusts the idle.
