    02 Polaris Virage Throttlebody linkage Issue

    Hi, I have a 02 Polaris virage 800 DI. Has anyone ever heard of leaks that can develop on the throttle body at the tps position? Im talking about the rod that goes thru the throttle body and controls the butterfly flaps. Is it poss to change the bushings seals on this ...? Thanks

    Ficht engines are not sensitive to minor air leaks in the throttle bodies. Note the large holes in the throttle plates.

    Ficht is not like carburetor, even though the physical red engine is the same, mechanically.

    I understand, although it wasn't air I was referring to. I seem to be losing some oil. The oil connections as you know enters the engine here at the throttle body. Im not sure of the orientation of the oil jacket, or if it even connects to these points.

    Oil hose nipple feeds straight through into the main throttle bore.

    Gotcha, I wonder if underneath the butterfly it collects at the bushing points and can seep out if they are worn. Just a thought. I ordered another throttle body so its kind of a moot point. But its kind of a bummer to have to change throttle body over inexpensive seals. Thanks!
