2002 ZR 600 EFI Possible TSS Problem

I have an 02 ZR 600 with 450 miles on it. I picked it up in the summer and never got to test ride it. The first time out, I filled it up with fresh gas and it ran awesone all day. Yesterday I went to ride it and it started on the second yank and seemed to run fine. I took off down the trail and hit the throttle, she cut out and killed. Started right back up though and would idle all day but intermittently, on acceleration, it will cut out and die unless you let off the throttle. I have had a few Cats in the past and they always came with a jumper plug for the bypass on the TSS. This one did not come with a plug and the wiring is unfamiliar to me. So my question is, where is the disconnect for the TSS? Is there a specific colored wire I can jump to bypass the TSS? The sled was a blast when it ran, I am convinced it is something simple like the TSS. Any other insight into what else it might be if not the TSS would be appreciated. We have snow for the first time in years and I need to ride. Thanks.

Just find the wires that connect to it and jumper them. The plug in is under the handlebar pad.

Disconnected the black wire with the white chaser (Throttle safety switch) Problem still exists. Hopefully there is someone on here who has had a similiar problem. The thing starts and runs flawlessly for about two minutes. You can crank the throttle to the bar and it flies and then suddenly you mash the throttle and it's like you hit the kill switch. Let off the throttle and it idles. If you baby the throttle, the sled will go intermittently. Let the thing sit for 10 minutes and you can go like a wild man for the next two minutes and then it starts all over again. It usually doesn't kill the motor completely unless you stay on the throttle. If it does die, the thing will start right back up.

Help !!!

What do the spark plugs look like? Kill the engine as it acts up and pull them out, possibly the ignition cutting out once the coils warm up. Maybe fuel supply problem, idles fine because of a low fuel demand but the pump cant keep up to high speed, have you checked the fuel filter?

The path less taken has thy best powder!

Plugs look great. I took it to the shop. They determined that the ethanol plug was connected and should not have been. There is a diagram on the top of the tool box, I saw the diagram but never thought that would cause the problem I was experiencing. Anyone else ever have there sled die because this plug was connected.
