Did you reconnect the TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) properly?

You probably lost the plastic clip thingo that goes between the TPS and the TB....or forgot to reinstal it. You ain't the first!

hako is on to it. under the TPS (the flatter plastic sensor) there is a tiny plastic cap that goes on the tip of the tb shaft. that HAS to be in place of else the computer will get all confused and chuck a hissy fit.

Pays to remember to put everything back exactly the way it came off
