Question TPS sensor

Mine had very similar symptoms and it was the TPS sensor. The computer stores codes, it doesnt flash everything. Have the dealer run it on the magic KTM computer and see what comes up.

I'm still waiting for some seals I ordered for Givi bags. They sent me a piece of one as far as I can remember. They said they would get the proper ones sent out. The trip was in 2010.
