Default Possible bad MAP sensor?

Ok so i started the bike yesterday and it idled fine but then the FI light started blinking. I did the erasing for the code and that didnt work. I disconnected the .negative on the battery and that worked. The bike went the whole day without throwing a code. Started her this morning and started flashing again. Then noticed when I put the kickstand up it goes solid. Tried everything I did yesterday and nothing has gotten it to go away Thinking MAP sensor is gone am i right?

Probably not....

Figure out what the code is and go through the diagnosis in the manual

I did the code check and the light blinks twice and I think the book said that was a faulty MAP sensor but also connections. Ive had this happen before. Checking the sensor connections last time was a PITA. Could it be my power commander?
