950 running badly above half throttle

2004 950 Adventure, Keihin CVRD 43 carbs.
My bike has been running badly at constant speeds above half throttle. It feels ‘held back’ as if the mixture is wrong.
This just started happening with no changes to the bike, it had been running fine.
I checked the diaphragms, jets etc, all good. Then checked the voltage on the Throttle Position Indicator (Yellow and black wires). Showing 0.58v closed throttle, 1.98 v half throttle then drops immediately to zero volts above half throttle to fully open. Can I repair the tpi (Clean?)or should I replace. If so where is the best place to get one for a reasonable price in the uk? Are theyb common to other keihin carbs?
Thanks.

Not really.

You need a new one. I think KTM doesn't sell it separately. You will find it in Triumph catalogues.
Cheers

Found one for a slightly less expensive price from Bikers Jersey KTM. It's on the way from Austria!

According to munnracing microfiche: year 2011

KTM sells them separately

front 61041077000 $101.49
rear 61041177000 $92.45

The front is usually failing
Cheers.
