The only conclusion I can make is the TPS sensors are bad. Seems like you are doing everything right. With low resistance it would reduce the amount of timing thus reducing horsepower a bit.

Do you access to another meter for a double check?

Were you doing this as a maintenance item of were you having issues? Saw where you posted on the Vstar facebook page. Hopefully Tim or Mick will chime in.

if the meter only goes down to 20K ohms for the lowest range, then 1 k ohm is 5% of full scale

if the meter is really accurate, say 1%, then your error band is+/- 200 ohms

the 10 ohm resistor is .05% of full scale, the meter would never be that accurate - that is down in the noise floor.

To check the meter you will need a 1% 10k or 5k ohm resistor.

a meter with a 2K ohm range would be better suited

i thought i was getting a clunk on shutdown and maybe the horsepower a little low....mick &tim have not responded, maybe the readings don't make sense to them. i'm going to get another meter, i paid $30.00 for this one at lowes...kcw its a 5% resister and at 2k i get .221.at set at 200 i get 100.2

So @Cliffieg what is it exactly that you do here? We should start a thread about best movie lines.

Enjoy the ride
