I Ride: 2013 White Strada
So set off for work this morning and as soon as I merged on the highway, it died. Same blown 10A fuse. Swapped it, set off, died 500 meters down the road. Swapped again, drove like a drunk priest home. When I got on my street, I did a throttle test. As soon as I cracked it rapidly, it died. Maybe got to 1/2 throttle, probably less. This was under 4K rpm.

I got her up above 6K rpm on the ride home with very ginger throttle. So it's TPS related, not rpm. I can't trace wires till this weekend.

Do you disconnect at the frame or ECU? I know where the frame connectors are but not sure if there's another dongle at the ECU bundle.

Trace the lambda sensor wire from the headers back and disconnect from there, both on the left hand side, one low and fwd, the other middle ish. should be pretty accessible though

I know where those are at. Inspected both when I did work this past weekend. They are mid-stream connections, though.

We get a CEL/ ERRORS with lambda's disconnected, right?

Yep those are the ones and yes you will get lights on the dash, but interested to see if the fuse stops blowing

Never had so many electrical issues with a bike, now my tail light is out but the brake like works, found a blown 10A fuse but didn't matter to the light, need to look harder...

I blew the brake light fuse often when I had some crappy aux lights installed.

The tail light is a twin filament bulb, brake light will still work if the tail light is blown and vice versa
Your bulb might need replacing or i have seen faulty bulbs in my career that have worked fine bit caused all sorts of electical problems and blown fuses. Id replace the bulb if i were you before anything else

Unless you're talking about the license plate light, I think the brake/tail lights are all led - 6 each.
