It's from 2017 but a 2018 model.

Suzuki has disabled this feature for the latest model.
The only solution to check TPS position is the Kawasaki TPS breakout lead (PN 57001-1538).

I was thinking they may have

Thanks for the confirmation, at least it means it wasn't me messing up.

I'm on the lookout for one of those cables. May have to pop down to the local Kwak dealers this weekend.

why would they disable a feature that supposedly helps fix their bike? would you not want your customers to be able to make the bike run nice if its off set.

is there a point to retarding it?

Maybe they disabled it because they realised it wasn't accurate enough for setting up the TPS properly, but if so its taken them a long time to do it as its been on GSXR's for many years, or maybe to do with, as it getting more popular nowadays, to stop owners fiddling with systems that could possibly affect emissions (such as using a torq security bit on the TPS as well)

And it's all our fault for posting about it and people pestering their dealers. So they make it harder to check hoping less people will bother.

Blue Naked 2015 ABS model. PCV, Nitron Ntr-1 shock, MRA screen(modified) Puig crash bungs, HEL lines and EBC-HH pads, job done. (Riding since 1959.)

Yeah, I think the same, dekker.
But in this respect, it's very strange that Suzuki dealers (at least some of them, like mine did two years ago) are refusing to check the TPS position.

Make you go to the dealer instead of fixing it yourself. As for dealers refusing, I still don't understand why they won't take your money for an easy job. Unless of course you are trying to get it checked as a warranty/defect item.
