It resets the Throttle Position Sensor. Supposedly, it improves your fuel mileage and makes you bike run better. Do you need to do it every so often? That's up for debate, but if you start experiencing a drop in fuel mileage, or a slight hesitation or flat spot on acceleration, then try it.
- disconnect the battery by removing the positive cable and holding it on the negative terminal for a few minutes. You need to let the electrical system "discharge" for this to work right.
- reconnect the positive cable
- turn the ignition switch to the ON position, but do not start thebike
- twist the throttle 3 times to the full open stop
- turn ignition off.
You're now ready to go.
I'm sure others will chime in and correct me if I made any mistakes.
