General Maintenance, Servicing, and Mechanical / Re: 06 Cbf1000 TPS query

Hi Tony
there have been several sub harness's  on ebay for the injectors
and tps lately. On the mk1 i think  the harness doesnt go directly to the ecu
but goes to a another connection on the way to the ecu.
when you set the tps if you pierced the harness could have damaged the wire?
When i cleaned the terminals on the connection on my bike with a contact cleaner
the seal at the bottom of the connector swelled up and made the connector difficult to fit
on the tps it has been ok when using ACF50.
There was a break out lead on ebay that fits between the tps and the wiring harness connector
which allows adjustment of the tps without damage to the wiring it was listed for KTM and Honda

8 flashes is TPS sensor.

Your sensor pic, sensor, yellow position line, and clockwise, all look spot on to me. (Unless you've been really unlucky and obtained a defective 'new' sensor).

You've mentioned moisture, wetness, and corrosion before, and this would be my first area to check out. I'd suggest giving the connectors a good dousing in water dispersant, such as WD40, followed by some contact cleaner to ensure they are properly cleaned up and water free. Is the wiring in & around the connectors themselves sound? No corrosion on any of the connector pins? Wires themselves ok?

For good measure, go old-school and give the connectors a white distilled vinegar bath. It's very cheap, supermarket about 50p a pint, and very effective. Get the connector block in a bag of white vinegar, like a goldfish in a bag, for 10-15 mins and that'll get all the crud off the contacts. Wash the vinegar off with your water dispersant. Don't wash off with water!

here is a pic of my sensor . the rest position is the yellow line. the movement is to the right that I deemed as clockwise.

I fitted it in today and whilst the bike ran the F1 light stayed on (which it didn't with my old sensor unless it was unplugged) and gave me '8 flashes' I didn't have the time today to further investigate but have a feeling that the plug or cables to the TPS might also have been water damaged. so for now the issue remains.

I re fitted and plugged the old sensor back in and the F1 light now stays on with that now - Iv'e definitely niggled something. .

Hold the throttle fully open for 5 seconds while cranking the engine, idea is to clear a flooded fuel system.

Just to be clear,when you say operate the throttle fully,do you mean hold it on full throttle for five secs or just fully open then let go?

Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring / Re: Mk1 light bulb
« Last post by Art on Yesterday at 01:17:49 PM »
bit late to the party here.

I replaced my standard 55W H7 dipped beam bulb for a cheap as chips 9.95 H7 HID bulb and ballast kit off eBay, because I wanted a brighter view in and around the unlit lanes here. That was back in 2015 and here we are 5 years and many night time miles/hours later and it is as good, bright and illuminating as it ever was. It passes the new MOT lighting requirements too.The downsides are you need to remove the fairing and modify the wiring harness to fit the ballast and a switch. The HID dipped beam needs a switch because if the headlamp is on when the starter motor cranks the engine the resulting voltage drop can cause the ballast to lock out leaving you without a dipped beam for how ever long it takes for the ballast lock out to reset. Mine took over night when it happened to me.
