idles but nothing else

This is what I have done:
New battery, fully charged
New plug, checked coil resistance with meter
Disassembled carb, blew out jets and passages (some sand in bowl)
Checked float height
removed in-line fuel filter
cleaned petcock and changed gas
checked Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) with ohm meter
What I intend to do next because all this began after trailering the bike through light rain.
Disconnect all the electrical connections, clean them, then add dielectric grease. Most of these connectors are gasketed but the TPS connection to the CDI unit is not gasketed.
What is left to do before the big-bucks guy gets a hold of it?

Oh, and this also solved the intermittent starter problem because this faulty contact was the main connection between the key switch and the rest of the system.
