Installed PCV With ignition module And fuel customs intake. TPS sensor connector was a pain in the ass . Broke tabs on connector but it should still hold up fine with the PCV connectors. Running sparks racing map even though I’m still using stock exhaust. Fired right up after install no problem. It’s a somewhat noticeable difference with power and throttle response. I was expecting a different monster tho. Bike ran great at the dunes . Pcv does not stay in place with supplied Velcro. I did NOT connect ignition module to coil. I just taped it up around the wiring harness. The next day..... morning after a great day of riding at the dunes bike will not start just crank . Battery should be good. could be tps or crank position sensor .

You should check/charge the battery before every daily ride 12.8v standard

Check if your TPS is in range with the PCV software or the standard way, .see picture below

It will at least show you if the TPS is functioning...

Yea! the easiest & cheapest is to purchase the 57001-1538 sensor adapter & solder it to the stock harness, that what I did with mine & make it easy to check it to be in range too ... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-57...YAAOSwR1FZ5NlE

I'm guessing the tps... I have a pcv and the plug is new but the tps isnt and the little tab is worn that locks it. It can easily vibrate free. I have very tiny zip ties wrapped around mine. I had to use long needle nose and I put them right up through the tiny clip and wrapped them around the tps. If I have a chance I'll take a pic. It's a backup plan because when there is a possibility like that in the air and theres a problem then u can already know that it's not that connection. I try to backup everything I can so it's faster to diagnose problems.

However devil is correct...just hook up to the pcv with a computer and it will display the sensor voltage for you. If there isnt a reading then the connection is bad
