    Throttle body problem on F15X

    My Throttle body went bad on my F15X last week. The shop I go to said they had another F15X come in last week with the same problem. My shop tells me Honda has them on "back order".

    Any one else having problems with the Throttle body on the F15X? Is there solutions or preventions?

    If it is the TPS even though they say it can't be replaced, it can if it's anything like the F12. You can use a dremal to cut a slot in the head of the studs holding it on and they will unscrew with a screwdriver. Not a very common problem but Honda uses the same one on some of their cars.

    One of my buddies was told his R12x needed a new throttle Body (along with a bunch of other sensors) by the dealership but turns out I ended working on it and all he needed was a new ECU. It is still running great. Also had another buddy just by a 2004 R12x for 3k in great shape.

    I was told by the owner of Xtreme Honda in Brandon Florida that the ONLY issue they have seen on the 15's has been with the throttle body. He said that they have seen a couple have a seal fail inn some that cause some leakage.
    I see a Ultra 300x in my future.
