See if there's a number on the TPS and do a search for it. The one on my bike is from a GM car. Was able to readily find and purchase a new one.Yesterday after a short 5 mile ride I stopped at my destination, got off, was talking to someone as bike idled and it just died.
I restarted it ok but it didn't like to idle.
Brought revs up to 1200 on tach and it faltered almost died then kept jumping up to 1300 1400 and dropping to 800 tach needle bouncing around low.
Gave it a rev , dropped it into first and it stalled.
Ok fired it up again a rode to get fuel, tried to buy injector cleaner there but only had expensive stuff for diesels,
So I just filled with the usual highest octane Premium no corn.
Bike ran ok on way home, its ok once running and over 2K all the way to 6K no problem.
Got home and undid battery terminals and thoroughly cleaned terminals and connections with 120 grit sandpaper.
Put battery on my tender charge but it read FULL after 5 minutes ,so I reconnected everything.
Added a good dash of methylated spirit (alcohol 96%) to soak up any water that may be in the fuel tank, ya never know.......
Started it up and idle was still inconsistent....would be ok for a while but then falter and fluctuate....
Left it overnight,
Today, got up and made phone calls for spark plugs, they're not same as a 106 they're NGK CPR6EB-9, physically smaller than the
DCPR6E that go in the 106 in the 2010 XC.
Had tough time finding a pair on Xmas Eve day.
Repco, Bursons, Autobarn, in my town and the next had none rang Super cheap Auto they had none but suggested the MX Superstore.
I rang there and Rose looked in their system...none..
BUT their sister online ATV World showed 5 in stock.
Catch was they only operate online but Rose sent me a link I bought 2 online $18
and at cart checkout ticked Pick up in-store, and yeah ride over there.
Well after I pulled the existing plugs and gave them a clean and tapped the gap a bit tighter to .028"
Ok rode to pick up the plugs, bike still behaving wierd at idle...pull like a freight train on speed all the way to 6K
but idle inconsistent....OK then not ok....
Bought the correct plugs, rode to Super cheap Auto and got a bottle of Fuel Doctor and dosed the full tank with 100mls.
Then rode home in the rain.
Pulled up at my front door and left it idling while I went into open the garage door
Was idling ok 900rpm.
Door open I sat back on bike , turned it off then restarted and held revs on 1000 rpm it was ok....but then it faltered picked up faltered picked up and when I clunked into 1st gear it died.....restarted and rode inside.
Just letting it cool before I gap the new plugs and fit them..
What might it be???
Got a feeling new plugs won't fix it but it's a good place to start.
Plugs have done....
let's have a look at the log book......10,000miles...
Should be ok still.
But I'll fit em anyway.....
Got a feeling it's electrical....
Thought this post went up yesterday but it didn't...
So gonna add I've read of similar problems //symptoms on here and the answer seems to be the TPS Throttle Position Sensor which according to Polaris is only sold as part of the complete throttle body(ripoff carnts they are!)
Anyway found a used one here in Oz on ebay for $35 and bought it, should be here next week....
You can also try resetting the TPS by turning on the key switch and rotate the throttle to full open and back to closed within 10 seconds, then turn off the key switch. Especially if the battery has been disconnected for a length of time.
