    Unhappy 2001 Polaris Genesis I revving too high at idle

    Hi,

    I have a 2001 Polaris Genesis I. I rode it today for about an hour without any problems. Then, I brought it home to clean it and fog it, and as soon as I started the engine, it revved up to 6000 RPMs. I accelerate it a few times to see if the RPMs would drop, but it didn't. I turned it off and checked the throttle linkages and everything looked good. I turned it on again, and it did the same thing. I then disconnected the TPS and turned it on. This time the RPMs dropped to about 1000. I removed the TPS and pinched the female connectors to obtain better contact and then reconnected it. I turned it on and it still revved up to 6000k at idle. Can the TPS be the culprit?

    Thanks.
    George

    Welcome

    It does sound like the TPS has failed.

    Seems like you have been reading up on our tips. Good to see

    Hi K447,

    I've been reading a lot of your posts and they have been extremely valuable. Kudos to you!!!

    Attached is a photo of my original TPS. If I understand another one of your posts correctly, the replacement and better TPS for my 2001 Genesis I is P/N 2410477 as shown on the second photo. Please advise. Also, what should the idle RPM be "out of the water"?

    Those two TPS are mechanically different. The old, flat style is not interchangeable with the newer pigtail style, as the shaft on the throttle body has a different end fitting for the two TPS types.

    Ficht TPS versions, sources
    1999-2001 non-pigtail TPS, 2002-2004 pigtail TPS versions are not interchangeable
