    I've just reset the throttle position sensor on my single throttle body V7 with the GTM Flash Tool. I've done it three or four times now. It's easy; Takes me ten minutes. If I didn't have the GTM Tool, my bike wouldn't run nearly as well as it does - and I'd have had to pay my local dealer, and I'm lucky to have one, to do that reset job each time. Multiply their minimum service charge times three or four, and I've nearly paid for the tool.
    Thanks, Todd!

    How often do you end up doing this?

    I'm gonna say, every so often. Maybe every couple of months. It's so easy that there's no reason not to do it. Seat off, right side battery cover off, cap off the input block clipped to the back of the airbox. I put Flash Tool on the tool tray, clip the appropriate plug to the input block (I don't know the proper name for that thing), clip the red and black alligator clips to the battery poles. The Flash Tool will light up and I just follow the prompts from there. Really doesn't take much longer to do than to describe. The only tool necessary is an allen wrench to remove the right side battery cover. Afterward, I put Vaseline on the rubber grommets on the frame where the battery cover plugs fit - and on the battery posts.
