Throttle body cleaning for the KK?

I'm coming up on 60,000 miles and will be replacing my spark plugs soon (plain old copper core plugs, btw). While I have everything apart, I was thinking of doing a throttle body cleaning, like I used to do on my old XJ when I changed the plugs. The TB in the KK is drive by wire, though-- meaning there is an electrical connection that controls the throttle position, not a cable. Also, it appears that the IAC is not a separate unit. I don't want to screw anything up, so would someone who has cleaned a KK throttle body walk me through what to do? Or if you know that I shouldn't mess with it, let me know. Thanks in advance. --LFH

I wouldn't unless there was something else going on causing you to remove it.
When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.
