Be aware of the panic rev.

Well boys, I hate to say it and put the fear in your minds, but my 2010 FLTRX had been throwing codes and going into limp mode, the stealer wiggled the connectors and added grease. The results were fine [for a while] then the limp returned once then twice and yesterday leaving the driveway it happened... The bike took off into a panic rev, luckily MY SON! was able to shut her down before shredding one side or the other... If my kid wasn't the skilled rider from racing his entire life HD would be in a world of shit right now.

I will be returning this bike to the stealer on Monday with full intentions of having everything that controls this motor replaced with new components, and have the technician write a full report of his findings along with what happened to case the repairs.

MOST OF YOU MAY BE THINKING BY NOW, THIS 'KID" IS FULL OF SHIT. MY SON WOULD NOT TELL A STORY TO GET ATTENTION AND THERE WAS A WITNESS.

[Disclaimer] Sorry if I'm blunt, I fell off my mini bike when I was little and lost the ability to give a sh*t.

Today's findings:

Codes
P1510-Throttle actuator control limited performance
P2122-Twistgrip position sensor 1 low/open
P2138-Twistgrip position sensor correlation error

Looks like both the throttle control and TPS are the culprit. The question is: Did they fail or is it connections or both???

Just as an adder here, I wont be giving up and heading to Honda...

See, this is why I can't figure out why they went to TBW. It's not like weight was an issue like in sportbikes or something.

I'm actually glad I'm on a TC 88 bike. No heat issues, no TBW issues, just pump 87 octane in the tank and pour some dead dinosaurs in the cases and it's good to go.
