You should perform a thorough tune up on your used moto that includes valve adjustment, throttle position sensor adjustment and throttle body balance

Iíve watched some videoclips about what you wrote. As I understand I should do all these 3 steps in the exact order you wrote them down. Is that correct?

Valves and TPS must be done before throttle body balance. 

Balancing the throttle bodies is the last thing you do.  It's done after any and all tune up operations like air filter, new spark plugs, injector cleaning, etc. are done.

You'll do the steps in any order I tell you to do them? Will you do other steps in betweenólike dance steps, tango maybeóif I tell to do them, too? What is wrong with doing what The Mighty Gryphon tells you to do? Do you think it's right he should feel left out? There are principles that govern how tuneups are done correctly. They are available from many sources.

I admire your resourcefulness in modifying your moto to the extent it is currently. Can you explain to me why you modified the moto first before you verified that its engine and engine operating systems weren't junk?

You can always rebuild a K engine. I heard :) or maybe because I know I can do anything if I put my mind to it. Yeah, must be that :)
