What would cause the self-test lights

Post by in2it »



Good Morning... The other day went for a ride and was going to set the cruise control... the cruise light came on but the cruise set light didn't and it wouldn't set the speed ...got home and I noticed not all of the self-test lights are coming on ... the only ones coming on when the switch is turn on are the Neutral and Oil light and the Alternator light (I installed this following the forum install) I have checked the fuses doing a continuity test they all rang out ... does anyone know what to look for next ... the bike will crank and run ... any help will be appreciated

For the cruise check the clutch, brake, and throttle switches. The clutch switch is often the cause. No idea about the bulb check issue. The LCD controls that.

I found the problem ... it was a female spade terminal on the front brake ... one of the four came off ... I lightly pinched the terminal and slide it back on ... Thank you Rambozo
