93 Exciter II .....
I think I understand what its for, but is it necessary?
I'm going through the carbs now because the tors was coming on last year. I hear some people disconnect it and jumper the wires. Should I?
I think I found the problem, let me know what you guys think.
With the carbs off and slides installed I noticed one of the slides started to move sooner than the other when I sqeezed the throttle.I synchronized them and it worked well on a short run last night. Thanks guys........
the tors system has nothing to do with the way your engine run unless you run full throttle for long periods it stands for throttle override system it is there in case your throttle sticks wide open it will cut the power to your ignition i have 2 87 xlv 540s and an 93 vmax4 and i disconected them on all 3 because i run wide open alot and it will shut them down if i stay wide open to long
there is a switch on the throttle, then one on the carb (or rail if mulitple carbs) like the last post said, if the switchs don't synchronize right it stalls the ignition. It is for safety, stuck frozen slide, throttle cable breaks, etc. to overide it, just unplug the switch at the carb, and plug the wire inline. You can test to see if it works, hold the pivot on the throttle from coming towards you. rev it up slowly and the engine will stumble and not let it go over 4,000 rpm. Normally if you squeeze your throttle you will see the pivot pull toward you before you actually open the carb slides, thats what you want to hold. try it. I leave mine on just in case there is an incident. I believe (not sure) if the carb slide sticks after you let off the throttle, the computer sees the throttle switch close at the handle bar, and not at the carbs, its then when it goes into stumble mode. its like a stutter box for drag bikes.
