theres more to it than that, something about using an ohms meter, and setting it at zero with the throttle plate closed... something like that; i think

Sorry
Ok with a .31mm or .0122 feeler gauge between the throttle stop and the throttle lever. Rotate the tps switch untill you get continuity between pins a & b (the top 2 pins of the 4 on the switch plug). Tighten the adjustment bolts. When you open the throttle all the way, there should be no continuity.

yes, basically. i took a couple apart when adapting an XT engine into my GL10 and it has a wheel that sort of cams a switch between two closed positions and an open spot in the middle, hence the three wires (on mine at least), and the need to have it zeroed somewhere.
