1200 have 2 knock sensors and 2 CO2 (Lambda) sensors.. think they have 2 TPSes too?
Don't know the real detail on that bike .. .. Possibly teh fuel pump controller (on top of teh pump) is not doing the right thing .. as the engine speed changes so too does the fuel pump output .. possibly when starting the pump runs falt out then after starting backs off ... ? that would suggest fuel filter problems to me ..
CO2 sensor faults, knock sensor faults should enable a 'limp home' mode - bike should run ok .. reduction in fuel economy. A TPS problem could cause bad running ..
Either the problem has gone away for the moment (fingers crossed) or they are working on it .. Tim, we like to 'know' what the solution is when you find it (or if it is lying dogo).
