I'm thinking could be SAS signal related, did the SAS'ectomy 3 years ago, resistor may have corrosion causing ECU to blunder.

You have to put it into neutral for the FI light to flash your code for you, then compare with the manual for code. Remember to count both long, and short flashes, ie; 4 long, 3 short = (x) code.

Wiring to the sensor is either broken or the sensors gone bad due to the wiring pulling on the sensor. This happens a lot on 690's.

I did that, and no codes. I have picked up codes on TuneECU before that were not displayed on the bike. Will report back tonight..

Tell you dealer to call KTM...when I complained about the backfires on my 2012, they told my dealer to install the Akro map...

You can thank California for this. I suspect it takes a lot of funky stuff to make some of these bikes compliant with emmissions. So they run like crap with no power and lots of issues but they pass the emmissions test. Bravo

I think we were all happier with the 49 state models...when the factories started building 50 state legal stuff, we all got cursed with the California drizzling shits...

Before cycling the key? If so, that's kind of strange indeed.

2012 here too-- stock exhaust, map 1 or 2 and never stalls. sometimes a lean misfire but not blowing the throttle body off... do have a warm (hot) start issue. If you shut her down completely with the key and letting everything reset she fires right up. i've had warm start issues trying to restart after a stall in the rocks and not turning the key off. just my 2c. probably doesn't help anyone.

It seems the 2012 are finicky also. Mine has Akra header and exhaust + Akra map. It has never stalled. However, on occasion, it has on start up run for about 10 seconds then quit. Upon restart, it runs fine. Maybe a cold start thing or something. No backfires. When I took the silencer out of the Akra it would crank, fire, but would not run at all. Put it back in, runs fine. Just thought I'd throw in my statistics here. Interesting situations with this machine.

Thanks Albie. My sensor has come off the bottom of my airbox once already.
I don't know if the dealer maybe left it off. One of the two screws were stripped out. Silly that it just screws into plastic.
Cheap spindly wiring on this bike too, IMO.

I should have time to go through my bike, waiting for a radiator.
A custom radiator may be in order.

Battery Voltage Display

Great mod. Love how small it is and how it can be positioned in your peripheral. Not too big which is not as professional as this one.

LED indicator

I've been using this one for a few years with good success:

Its nice because it is light, sleek, and can be mounted just about anywhere with just a small single hole.
