Polaris TPS ?

Postby OnTheEdge » December 7th, 2002, 11:17 pm

Getting a couple different answers to what the TPS function is. Read that you should set the TPS voltage from 3.75 to 4.25 volts in a service manual for Pols. Why would Pol give you such a big margin for this setting? I have read through other sources DO NOT set it higher than 4.0 volts or you could lose your motor, also the higher the voltage setting, the more you advance the timing. What exactly does that do and what effect does it have on your sled as far as performance? I had mentioned to my dealer about poor gas mileage, he said he advanced the timing, i.e., increased the TPS to 3.99 volts. The stock setting was lower than this according to the paint marks on the screws. Sled runs great, it does like its fuel though LOL. Just want to understand the hows and whys on the TPS.

go to www.hardcoresledder.com it is explained there
and tells of problems you might have etc.
Ive got 2002 800 xcsp mine was 4.28 stock and I got it set now at 3.95 Been a lot of talk about it causing melted valves,detenation,pinging at mid range etc.Seems changing tps to less than 4 is supposed to fix these problems.well have to wait and see.
