    TPS and TB for 1200 engines

    Ok here's the deal....
    I bought a set of throttle bodies for a 1200 on ebay for $75 shipped. They came with a TPS. The seller claimed its new, and was bought as a test to fix the problem. Turned out the EMM was bad.
    Either way, I bought the whole thing for the throttle bodies. I have a 00 setup, and a brand new pig tail TPS that I wanted to use, so I figured I would just get new TB's as that method is cheaper. I got such a good price on this setup, that I planned to just keep the sensor as a spare/backup.

    Well the throttle bodies are SHOT. They have so much corrosion that even after sand blasting they are too far gone. Bolts are snapping off, and the mounting point for the TPS is cracked in half.

    The seller offered to refund my money, but I wanted to check here and see if anyone else is interested in this stuff. The TPS alone is worth $75+ and from what I hear they are hard to come by / back ordered.
    I will put a multimeter on my new TPS and compare it to this one to make sure its good before I sell it.

    Let me know ASAP if you want this. If not, its going back to the seller.

    Here is a link to the auction -

    Grapevine Kawasaki sells them online for like $86 and they are back in stock now so if you have a chance to just get a refund it's probably safer than taking a chance on something you don't 100% know the history of.

    Thanks for the heads up! I didn't realize these were back in stock. I'm sure there will be plenty of happy jet skiers now this season =)
