Default Throttle position sensor?

On my 2011 crossfire 800 upon every start up when I start to press to throttle the sled hesitates or acts like it is going to die. I burp the throttle lever and get the sled moving and it goes away. I noticed this a little last year and now it seems to be getting worse. Could it be the TPS? Is there any adjustment that I can make to it?

Thanks,
Mark

I am not sure on the current or newer sleds but my 05 had to be adjusted buy a dealer. It is set by voltage. According to position of the throttle plate.

Check the TSS before thinking TPS.

Not sure exactly for your sled, but on my '09 Turbo, I took the throttle block apart and disconnected the micro switch that was "cammed" by the throttle lever pin. The kill button still remained functional and my stumbling problem went away. The gap measurement to the microswitch was out, resulting in a false condition interrupting ignition. Not sure if the wiring is the same on your sled, could be normal open or normal closed. Maybe someone can chime in.

Curious to know if anyone else has any input on the wiring for the tss. I would just be happy to disconnect the darn thing and be done with it. The way it is now is a real pain carving in and out of tree lines and carving at slow speeds.

Thanks
