Polaris Sportsman 800 EFI X2, Only runs at idle

As the topic, I've got a SP 800 EFI x2 - 2008 That dies as soon as i hit the throttle, it idle just fine. It's something whit the ignition... I've tried a diffrent TPC and all the sensors on the trottle body.

Any ideas?

Greetings from Sweden

Fuel Filter?
Fuel Pump?
Check Fuel Pressure at injector rail?

I would be looking at the fuel filter first,a clogged one will cause a vehicle to do exactly
what yours is doing.
It might not be the cause but that would be first thing i would check ,then the rest as suggested.
