It might be as simple as a change in fuel quality.

Need to get it to a dealer for diagnosis - it could be the IAC part 4013313 @ $180, the IAC wiring harness part 2878507 @ $120, the TPS 2410342 @ $210 or the TPS assy 1204715 @ $210, the TMAP sensor 2411528 @ $75 or the wiring harness connectors. At any rate, it's fuel injected - every fuel system problem seems to be a 2 to 5 hundred dollar service.

I'm glad all my recreational vehicles have carburetors. Someday, when EFI diagnostics are available OTC, I might consider an ATV with it.
