    Cool '06 (B)Uelly

    PXL_20220810_171408446 (1).jpg

    "New to me" with almost 19,000 miles. Seems to run just peachy.

    Mods spotted:

    Right side air scoop
    Heated Grips
    Windshield Bracket
    Front Fender
    Low Seat
    Side and Back Racks with Hard luggage


    I'll need the Buelltooth adapter so I can reset TPS, but I think that's about it.

    Looks really nice! Happy to join the club

    But if it runs just peachy, why would you mess with the TPS? On an '06 it is a whole procedure to be followed exactly. Not just a button to be pressed, or it will not be running just peachy anymore

    Good question! I thought it was a routine maintenance task, not a reactionary maintenance task. If that's the case then I suppose I'll hold off.

    Thanks, Cooter!

    That's good stuff man. Went out and got some blue loctite yesterday! Now I am noticing some running issues, so I may need to do a TPS reset or look into fueling issues, or possibly an intake seal. I'll make a new thread in the proper location.

    The manual lists the whole procedure for the TPS re-set. Follow it precisely

    I like using ECMDroid for simple tuning uploads and especially for diagnosis. The 'live data' page is priceless for seeing sensor values and avoiding replacing something thats good. It's free on Google Play store. It uses a bluetooth wireless connection to the bike and I like the Buelltooth dongle I got from Buelltooth (now Rev-Mo.com). Checking for a TB seal leak is as easy as spraying carb cleaner at them while idling, and checking AFV (and EGO) with ECMDroid will tell you what the ECM is doing to compensate for a possible lean mixture if they are indeed leaking.

    Being 16 years old there are some prudent maintenance items to look for. O2 sensors get lazy, belts get UV degraded, things that you won't find a service interval in the SM. A weird Buell Uly-ism is a low seat will put weight on the ECM box and physically crack it. It's worth removing it and looking. Put Play-doh on top of it, install the seat and bounce around, see if it has clearance or if it's totally flattened.

    A word of caution though: Going to look at the candy store that is Rev-Mo.com PLEASE avoid the free tune Sirens calling as a universal fix for everything. Theres no tune that will fix leaking TB seals. The rule is "FIX it, THEN modify it"
