Re: What is this LCD indicator?

It doesn't move, change, or do anything else. It's just like the scale on the left side for the fuel - all it does is turn on when the bike turns on, to show a scale that indicates "higher than here is hot." So it comes on when the bike is on, and goes away when the bike is off. No additional funct...

Re: Lighting issue

its normal on the 1200 to see the lights go up and down a bit, its caused by the stator at different volts at idle other being at full power when the revs are up.

you may also see a slight dip in lights etc, when the brake lights are on.

pulse generators have a tendency if faulty, to stop the bike when hot, and allow a start when the bike cools, maybe worth a look

perhaps its worth thinking about, before you replace the stator, as to what caused the failure in the first place. its easy to think that, its just a stator failure, I did and went through two stators before realizing something else was wrong, and causing the stators to fail (a very costly way of fi...
