    Ulysses 2007 - Replacement of 2007 TPS by post 2007 TPS?

    Hello guys,

    I just registered on that forum. I am a french owner of a Uly 2007 with a lot of troubles. I think last one is due to TPS, then I am wondering if it is possible to replace my current 2007 TPS (expensive) with a post 2007 TPS (cheap in France). I know that a mechanical adaptor is needed to fit the 2007 Butterfly valve shaft. But, "electronically" speaking, do you think it could work?

    Thanks!

    most 2007 XB's can accept Duralast TPS213
    a few 2007 XB's can accept Duralast TPS4129
    the tang on the TB shaft is what determines which one crosses over. remove your TPS unit and compare.
    France???? remove yours and check locally via auto parts joints. 95-98 BMW 318i had multiple TPS listings and one of them was direct 2007 XB replacement though i don't recall which one it is.
    either way they're all in the $40 range. OEM lists for $97.90

    Hi Lunaticfringe,

    Thanks for the reply! I think there is a 3rd model specific to 2007 buell but you are right the first thing is to check the one I have on my bike. Hopefully, it could be the same as TPS213. I am sure it is not a TPS4129 model.

    Thanks

    my pleasure. here's the dealer issued TSB addressing the model year change-over for the TPS unit that's applicable to late 2006-all 2007 XB's. once you determine the throttle shaft and matching TPS unit for your bike it's then easy to match up the ford/duralast/bmw part # to save a substantial bit of money.
