Question about Throttle Plate Positions when bike is off

Hello All,

I have a question regarding throttle plate position when the bike is turned off. I was working on the bike and noticed the plates looked partially open. Last time I looked at the throttle plates was when I had the ECU flashed by Ivan and was setting the TPS, etc. When I turned my bike off last I used the key instead of the kill switch (not sure if that actually matters). In doing so my throttle plates appear to be open more than idle position. Is this position normal when the bike has been turned off? I feel like they would close more upon shut down.

Thanks for the possible help.

When you switch off don't care about the position.
You have to check when you switch on before starting the motor and when idle instead.

Gotcha, thank you. I had it in my head that when the bike shuts off the servo would close the plates.

I've read a little bit about people doing that. Can you explain to me why you decided to go that route?
