    04 msx 140 dead spot

    Hey Guys, I just picked up an 04 msx 140 w 135 hrs on it. Has 130 psi compression and it's a clean machine. Starts right up and idles but there is a dead spot between idle and about half throttle, you can pull the trigger back and forth and it will only idle until you pull it past half way point , then it will rev normal. It behaves the same way in the water, it has throttle range from half throttle all the way up to 6950 rpm and pulls consistantly, but the dead spot will return once you let it idle down. Seems like a computer problem, this is my first injected polaris ( pro 785, pro 1200, sl 900, octane, Hurricane) . Are they symptomatic of this? How much could it cost ? PART IT OUT ???????

    Thanks for the anticipated response,
    Matt 973-229-6266

    TPS is about $100, give or take.
    Much cheaper than an EMM

    Babbitts sells them, among others.

    The newer design TPS is also a better design. You will automatically get the current version when you order.

    I have a new TPS that was removed from a Matrix conversion... $50.00 and $11.25 US shipping. [email protected]
