Any updates pacomutt? I'm having the exact same issue on my 06 900 Classic. I've already tried unplugging/plugging everything to no avail. But I don't think the sensor is the problem, as the bike does startup in a fast idle and comes out of the fast idle after a few seconds (it depends if I left it idling or if I just took off and if the bike was already warm, for example, I know that when I get out of work, it comes out of fast idle two blocks away from work). Therefore I think that the ECU is getting signal.
Right now I'm going to buy a multimeter... I've already disassembled the speedometer, thinking that maybe I would be able to test the oil or FI LED instead of the temp led, but that didn't work (connectors are different). I'm suspecting that the temp led is burnt, but won't know until I get the multimeter.
Go soothingly on the greasy mud, for therein lies the skid demon
