Sadly after 11000 miles i am getting intermittent errors from my tps sensor. I have been cruising down the road and just randomly the check engine light comes on and i loose power. When i turn the key off and then click it back to on. I get 3 blinks from the check engine light. When i inspect the sensor it has white corrosion on it. I haven't yet removed the seat and tank to check the ohm ranges. That is my next step. However if its where it should, where can i find a cost effective tps replacement? Or do they just cost around $140 like I've seen online?

Double check those blinks....there is more than 1 group of flashes so basically you have half the code.

33 is primary lead Ignition coil #1 short circuit. It will close the fuel shutoff solenoid on cyl 1.

34 is primary lead coil #2 short circuit which closes the fuel shut off on cyl 2.

Those are the only codes with a 3....and neither has anything to do with the TPS.

Check your ignition wire ends both at the coil and at the plug cap. They screw in/on to a stud and do come loose. Also a bad wire can cause the coil to arc thru the case. Only seen that on GM coils, so take it with a grain of salt. You can also run the bike in the dark and check the wires for St Elmos Fire (external glowing or sparking)/

Am i correct that the coil and the wire per cylinder are one item. Not a seperate wire and coil? I have no problem replacing these parts since im already tearing into the bike during prime riding season here in colorado. What would you guys recommend? And certain brands of coils and wires?

Did you check for a short in the primary wire? These coils rarely go bad. You can replace the coil and still have an issue with the wires going into it.

You can replace the sparkplug wires without replacing coils..
