    Recently my 2003 fatboy started idling high,about 2000 rpms at startup.The idle would come down a bit sometimes to 1200 to 1500 rpms,checked my sensors with an ohmeter,they checked out.While taking my tps sensor out a part of the throttle butterfly shaft came out with it.It broke on the tps sde where the screw holding the throttle plate was.If that screw went into the motor i would have had big trouble.I replaced the throttle body hd part#27603-01 and put the sensors in it, works fine.
