    I was having high idle, check engine light on acceleration and occasional sputtering and popping.

    Read through some posts after taking it to dealer and mech telling me it was the MAP sensor. (To be fair it was giving the code for MAP high)

    Swapped the MAP and little change.

    Found out that it could be the throttle body (shaft cracked) from a trhread here....sure enough that's what it was!

    $172 and an hour later bike idles fine and has no issues running.

    Saved me a lot of money going to dealer and trying all the wiring replacement.


    Love this forum! Thank you very much!
