FI light Urgent!

I have a few issues with the fuel injection so it seems. Two weeks ago, during a muddy offroad ride, the light came on a few times, not flickering, just on, only to dissapear later.

Last week I didn't have any problems at all.

Today, the light went on, and stayed on for over an hour, untill I got home. Somebody told me it could be a problem with the battery, so I charged that. Light was not on when I started, but after a two minute test ride it started flickering, I counted 8 flicks but there is no code for 8 in the manual, so I guess it must be 7, wich is a problem with the second throttle sensor according to my manual. Then I cut the engine, and when I turned it back on, and drove home, another short ride, the FI light stayed out....

I asked at the KTM dealership, but off course there are no mechanics in on sunday to test it.

Anyway, I have a +200 K ride planned for tomorrow, Does anyone know if I should risk that with all the issues. Engine runs fine, can't hear of feel a thing.
Would hate to have to take my car tomorrow, we finally have some spring sun here, and I am off to an off road terrain to test the KTM Freeride...


EDIT;
Apparently the light only flashes when in neutral... I misread the error code. It is 72. That is the stepper motor for the second throttle valve. Very nice of them to put that in the manual, only now I still don't have an idea what the hell is going on :-).

Download tuneecu, get the OBD cable ebay or else and look into the faults. Great way to look into the beasts belly.

Can't help ya out right away, don't have that mutch experience with the 990s.
I'd check the connection of the sensor for corrosion, moisture and/or dirt.

In Bilstain. Organised by endurofun. It's three days, but I have a funny feeling everything will be booked.

Went to the dealer, apparently the sensor for the throttle valve was a bit off. It is ok to drive like this, they will attend to it when the bike gets serviced next week. I figured if they have to take everything off they might as well service it as well.
