Check your connection at twist sensor. The little green plug has been known to cause problems.

Did you check DTC error codes?
Green connector end of the TGS
Either inside handle bars or in the cable run out side the bars. Green plug POS cut and solder wires using shrink tubing.

More than likely (without knowing the codes) it would be the TCA(throttle control actuator) pull the plug off behind the air cleaner. put some dielectric grease on the pins & reconnect, clear the codes. Happens about every 5k miles on mine.

There is a lot of info in the troubleshooting section that can help you with your problem.
The TCA plug on the throttle body is the problem not the green connector inside the handlebars.
