Whatever works, right Jim? This is a a good way to go about it though. Still not a fan of hammering in my TBs though. But my fat ass provides a lot of weight to push them in with.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

well, after a couple minutes with my feet off the ground, anyway i wouldnt shock them much either. little oil light tap seats them across the board. mallet probably weighs 2 lbs, pretty gentle actually kinda seating one at a time with a couple light taps.

Did you ever get your Throttle bodies back in NinjaLife?
I have a Gen 2 with 48k kms on it, spent hours trying to get my throttle body's in the boots, tried every technique i've came across.... I dont want to but i'll likely order a new set of rubber boots and give that a crack

Hey Donkey,

Yes I got them on, I kinda did a combo of all of the things that were recommended in this thread.

It's been awhile but I remember letting the bike sit out in the sun for maybe an hour or so. That along with a little oil dabbed on the throttle bodies and they finally slipped in. It was rough, I only weigh around 140ish soaking wet and there were times where I had my feet off the ground with all of my weight on the throttle bodies trying to push them in. LOL

If you have colortune or some other vacuum balance equipment then every time you remove those bodies 're balance them, if you don't own such equipment then after the kind of force you had to apply to those bodies you must get them synchronized mate. Even if you feel the bike is running ok.

I just got mine in, I spent HOURS trying then I bought a heat gun, put it on the highest setting, warmed them up good and the throttle body went on first attempted... I also used my right foot to put pressure on them while holding the handle bars (not that you need to, but legs are much stronger then arms), and I put a zip tie around the front brake + handle bar so I had something to push against...

TLDR: highly recommend using a heat gun if your struggling
