Classic 500 EFI stalling

Hi all.
I got my 2014 Classic 500 EFI about a month ago. Drove it for about a 100km and then problems started. If you turn the throttle it seems like it is getting fuel starvation and then stalls. The MIL does not come on.
What I have done so far:
Cleaned the throttle body and injector, tested the injector, cleaned fuelpump and checked the fuel pressure, checked tps wiring to ecu and idle voltage is 0,6V, cleaned all electrical connectors but the problem still persists. Any ideas will be appreciated.

It is a well known problem with new Himalayans. Most of these problems disappear after a a couple of thousand kilometers. I had the same issue; after some 6000 km no more stalling (never was very frequent anyway).
How many km has your bike done?

Took another look at the picture in the thread and noticed it would probably be broken in properly by now....
Could you try running it with a higher idle, say 1500 rpm?

Did you check if the clutch is not dragging/coming free completely?
