How is that air filter looking?

I would invest in a fuel controller to see if that helps. $2000 isn't a bad price at all for these, have seen some pretty abused ones going for double that.

The air filter has seen better days. Ordered two and both was wrong. I am just finding out the old one has k&n on the top but looks sketchy like its bootleg.

A controller sounds expensive. Is that the only way to fix a lean raptor?

Glad thats not a bad price. Before you say that it had bent a arms, seat had a huge hole in it, no handle bar grips and some rust here and there. Attempted to call the seller.....ill just deal with it plus im learning a lot this way. I got it looking a lot better $400 later lol

A TPS with moisture in it will give unreliable readings and cause unreliable operation.

What are the symptoms of running hot? Bubbles in the overflow tank?? Look in the top of the radiator for turbulence and/or bubbles. Pull the thermostat and test it in a pan with boiling water. Give the fan blades a turn to see if free. Jump with a 12 volt jumper to see if it works.

A fuel controller should always be the first mod, before your K&N or aftermarket exhaust.

I did notice when i was testing the TPS that the numbers on the meter would take a while to go back down with deceleration but no dead spots. Does this mean its bad?

Can the fuel controller fix a faulty TPS?

The bike seems to be getting hot really fast and my temp gun is reading around 243 degrees in like a minute or so. No bubbles in the overflow tank. When i changed the coolant i removed the bleeder screw and let all the air and bubbles out the system. I tested the thermostat and it opens under hot water and closed under cold.

The fan blade moves freely. Not sure what you mean with 12v jumper? Please explain the process so i can try it out. Thankz

If you plan on keeping the Raptor and adding mods in the future get the PCV with timing, it will have way more adjustments than the ones you are looking it.

Update on the fan.

I started up the rap7 and unplugged the temp sensor (green plug) located under the thermostat. What do you know the fan came on. What does that mean? Bad temp sensor or bad fan relay?

You can get free maps on the power commander site. If you buy from a site sponsor they will load a map for free.

You should be using your shop manual for the correct test procedure and sequence.
