Cool K75 Engine Rattle

My K75RT has developed an engine rattle after my last service. Have spoken to the shop about it and they just say oh it happens it will go. Having looked through the forums here I think I know what the problem is, it is the Throttle Position Switch needs adjustment. They adjusted it in the shop when they did the shims.
I have a Haynes Manual, but could anyone help me with just how to adjust the switch, I don't want to make things worse.

If it's like the K12 you just DON'T mess with it. The only way to set up the K12 TPS is on the diagnostics computer because the mechanical adjustment makes big differences to the voltages coming off the resistors and feeding the ECU.

I'm not sure why you suspect the TPS. What is the idle running at? If it's in spec for the bike, then perhaps some K rattle is normal. If idle was running higher before, then they did the right thing getting it into spec because that can affect the ECU initialisation and gas mileage.
