secondary butterfly question

i have the tank and air cleaner off and am sitting there looking at the secondary butterflies and can't help myself any longer, so i take my finger and push them open to peek at whats down in there. i thought they were spring loaded and would "snap" back. well they just stayed open so i pushed the other side and put them back closed. did i screw anything up doing this? do they have to be recalibrated if you move them around?

not true at all. At least on an 04. The only side effect to removing the bar is you lose your cold start fast idle b/c the linkage rides on the bar.

would it be better to remove the bar if the plates are removed? my actuator is fried so i had to remove the plates , but i just left the bar in. the bar does nothing now but sit in the way.

well i assumed his was an 06 since its listed as "yellow" and as i said if you remove the bar youll be staring at an fi light.. then if you do have an issue with the bike you wont know cause the fi light will always be on..
