So I was riding for 30 minutes when all of the sudden it died. It will start and run great until I give it throttle and then it dies. Does anyone have any ideas?
First, run the IM diagnostics as explained in this post (clear codes after reading and noting what you see).

Stalling after starting can be caused by any of the following:
The fuel delivery system including fuel tank, fuel cap (plugged vent), fuel filters, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, or fuel injectors.
ECM (electronic control module) problems
TPS (throttle position sensor) problems​

I feel like a 14 year-old poking around in the dark. Can someone share some pics of the ground strap locations with me? I can't find 'em!
Here's a couple of pictures scanned from a service manual that shows the critical ground wires. This first one shows the engine ground to the frame located on the lower rear cross member. This frame ground connects to one of the oil pan fasteners.

In this other picture note items "1", "3", "8", "9" and "10". These pictures are for earlier models but the late model wiring is similar.
