990 gear selection sensor?

so, we all have one of these. the question is, what does it do to the ECU, and what would be any benifits or hazzards from disconnecting 2nd and 3rd gear?



i have heard that the sensor tells the ECU when it's in those gears, NOT to allow full throttle. something about noise and emissions standards. i have a call into ktm about this but doubt they are going to tell me anything other than don't touch it as they cant be held liable. so can anyone please explain this for me?

if it is limiting throttle then it has to go. if it does nothing more than just signal the ECU, then i will save my time and not mess with it.

thanks,

laramie
