It serves one purpose. It tells the ignition advancer when to advance. It is a rheostat that delivers a rising resistance based on the opening of the butterfly plate in the carb.

Much too much is made of it.

Re: TPS settings

vtromey: I tried the TPS adjustment (mine was at 837 ohms stock, set it to 477) and was not at all impressed with the end result. The bike felt less responsive with no real benefits. I re-set it back to stock last week and all is well again.
