New Himalayan FAQ Thread

Total noob
Watched that Vid , he seemed to suggest 0.56V , others suggest 0.63 or 0.69 - any thoughts or authorized source for setting?
It would seem that the reading at tickover will vary depending on the position of the butterfly shaft which is set by the throttle stop screw on my carbed bike so should I be adjusting the TPS if I adjust the throttle stop?
I set mine at .63 and it starts on the first push of the start button. I figured it would be best at the lower end. My sensor was factory set at the lowest end possible right against the stop so they had not adjusted it at all. It was reading in the .50's I tried the high .60's but the bike didn't like it. See what yours reads first and go from there, like I said .63 was good for me. Let us know how it works for you.

Checked my TPS calibration, likes 0.63 V - factory setting. Tried a range of settings, and increased/decreased the Idle air screw 1/4 turn open/closed from factory setting with engine at op temp.

"Tried a range of settings, and increased/decreased the Idle air screw 1/4 turn open/closed from factory setting with engine at op temp."
And the conclusion is?

Can we move this discussion to a new thread? The TPS adjustment discussion is still very much a personal opinion kind of thing. It doesn't appear to be a common problem - ie) more than 50% of the owners are complaining about it on this forum. Until it's really an "FAQ", I think the discussion needs to be moved elsewhere.

Checked mine a couple of days ago, was set to .67—.68. I adjusted to .57 and now it cold starts on first try with no stalling and a more stable rpm and quick throttle response. After a 2min warm up the idle rpm is solid. Leaving it at that value for now.

So happy to have found this site with all your awesome resources!! Can't wait to use it, already digging trough the awesome FAQ. Imported 2020 Himalayan from India to Myanmar..so no service centres here, and the local shops have no idea :D

I'd love to mention how the sound and handling and the whole riding experience improved with every hundred KM's !
At the start, while breaking in the engine i was not impressed with the clanking and tapping sounds coming from the engine.
Not impressed by how it shifted and the sounds the clutch would make (eventho i have experience shifting motorbikes)
But after first oil change and selfservice, it improved alot.
Only last week on a short trip of about 120km, my ears would be tired of the engine noise..
2 days ago, did another trip, that sound was reduced by 60%. Smooth handling, smooth shifting.

Could never have imagined that it would improve this drastically with passing mileage!And i havent even upgraded the sparkplug yet :D

So for those alittle anxious about excessive noise (unless its really unbearable and indicates some fault) hang in there! It WILL get alot better

After a lot of frustration, I created a pdf of the most relevant posts from the Himalayn FAQ thread. I post it here in the hope that people will find it useful. Please feel free to use this in any way you see fit.

I am certainly open to adding and amending to this file. Simply post here or PM me and I will add to this file if it is relevant to the greater Himalayan community. The administration has agreed to keep this as a sticky so it can't get buried in irrelevant nonsense.

Excellent information. Thanks!

RE_FAQ_V2 : 7/31/2022 I've updated the FAQ paper with information on two things: (1) Fuel pump relay & 'safety' switch problems and (2) TPS adjustment issues. Seems like these two issues are fairly widespread and to the unsuspecting, a total f**ing mystery.

Note #2: Having just gone through this, the EBC part numbers in the pdf are correct for sintered metallic pads. If you go by the parts finders on Amazon and eBay, they don't show as being compatible with the Himalayan. EBC says they are, so I'd go with that.
Thank you for the .pdf .....it will be very useful to me. The effort that you put into creating that is appreciated indeed.

Awesome, a big thanks. Not sure whether this is a correct place, but people who order OEM panniers/racks receive instructions which are Cracker Jack prize sized and the PDF version can be elusive. Here’s a copy from RE’s site, it can also be found at Hitchcock’s OEM Himalayan pannier page. FIY Be sure to recheck bolt torque after the first 500 miles.
