So the bike fires up no problem...but after about 10 mins or a few miles down the road it dies like the ignition switch was hit...could this be a temp issue? And also my fans have never come on once.
Its an 07. Please help

No Crank position codes? System relay or CPS most likely possibles. Engine needs to be cranked for about 5 seconds continuously and if no signal is received by the EMC the code will be thrown.

So you think ACP S will cause it to shut down after its warm and fire backup when it goes off?
CPS can get hot , fail and then when it cools work again. I can't see a TPS behaving like that with heat but follow the code for now. CPS would be my first choice, with those symptoms. TPS is the cheaper of the two sensors to buy. Like I mentiond, in order for the CPS to throw a code, the engine needs to be cranked over for 5 seconds steady.

You can verify TPS sensors with a multimeter. Most shop manuals have the expected resistance values between pins to determine go/no go.

Also, a quick google shows some people have had luck simply unplugging and reconnecting the tps sensor electrical terminal at the throttle body itself. It's worth a shot (and maybe a quick blast of electrical spray cleaner).

What year is your bike? Possible to have corrosion/water/loose connector if old enough. I've seen way stranger.

Definitely try the TPS connection. Multimeter verification would be easy/good as well.

The 10 minute figure is odd though.....is it EXACTLY 10 minutes? I know, hard to say....just curious as I wonder if the time would point to a timeout or retry period in regards to one of the sensors not reporting data.
