I think my TPS is junk. I was told it cannot be replaced but I would have to replace the whole throttle body unit in my 2010 1198. I can find them used online for much cheaper than the dealer but I'm not sure if the part will work. They say 848 but fits 1098 and 1198. The dealer also want sure. How can I find out before I order one? Thanks

The throttle bodies are not all the same. The 1198 ones are definitely bigger than the 1098's.

As suggested in your other thread, you only need to replace the TPS potentiometer itself, not the whole throttle bodies.

Much less work too.

I hope it fixes your issues.

Thanks guys I located one that is a replacement TPswitch. Wasn't sure since 2 dealers had previously told me I needed the whole throttle body assembly.

Perhaps what they were saying is that the throttle bodies and TPS is stocked as one part number and is sold by Ducati as a complete unit.

I have to ask: what makes you think that the throttle position sensor needs to be replaced? It's quite uncommon for these things to fail.

Ok I replaced the sensor a that problem went away but now the bike runs too rich to say running. Any clues as to why or if something needs to be done when changing the tps?

Already fouled the plugs and replaced them. Hopefully it will be reprogrammed tomorrow. I'll let weary one know how it works out. Thanks for all the advice guys

I've replaced my sensor twice in 82,000K and have helped several members diagnose a failed TPS. They do require a TPS reset right after being installed though.
