TPS adjustment v star 1100
I have a 2003 v star 1100 custom, pods, dyna ignition, and I get the clunk sometimes when I start it if I give it more choke than it needs and it normally clunks loud when I kill it (I am starting it correctly). It eventually twists the bolts on the starter motor.
I want to check the tps to make sure everything is in spec because from what i've read that is the likely culprit. However, I can't seem to get a reading when I try to measure the resistance. I've never used a multimeter before, so I'm guessing I'm the problem.
Can someone tell me how to get a reading? I've read in the manual what to touch to which wire, but I can never get a reading. On the wiki page it says not to stick something larger than a pin in the connector under the seat, but I don't even know what I would stick a pin too. I have tried touching the the metal part sticking up corresponding to the wire, but I can not get a reading from that. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
