I know where it should be but it's not in the left part of the frame, I'm very confused

Follow the flexible cable from the front throttle body, clip the white plastic bit back into the holder on the left.

The holder isn't even there sid, iv got a feeling they have moved it for this model, the user manual states that if the idles needs adjusting to take it to a dealer, doesn't even mention where the idle adjustment screw is.

I'm pretty sure the idle adjustment was ECU only from 2007 onwards, so no screw?

Nuts, take it that means I can't do the TPS adjustment then ?

I'd wait for someone with a bit more knowledge to confirm, but I can't see why not, especially if you aren't having any idle issues, it's just an extra useful step but not vital.

Done it anyway, idle adjusts itself

when doing the TPS there is no need to set the idle on twin spark bikes 2007 onwards as its auto. you will however have to let each adjustment settle before making another.
