Dash Lights...Not Battery Connections
2011 XC - 25,000 miles.....Ok here is what I have going on. I've been getting the bike ready for the season, going through the normal maintenance and such (I'm in Maine - bike season doesn't really kick off until June).
Anyway I took it for a short ride yesterday and noticed that the left blinker indicator was on. Then the cruise indicator started flashing. Blinkers and all lights still worked. So I went to an XC page on Facebook and someone suggested to check the battery connections. I hadn't gotten there yet so, I dug in and found that they were a little bit loose. I tightened them up, used lock tight and started the bike. Everything appeared normal. Problem solved...so I thought.
So...this morning I'm bringing the bike to work, and a few miles down the road the light comes back on. Then my radio display starts flashing and scrolling through my iPod play list all on it own. The radio continued to work fine. Shut the bike off, and then started back up and all appears normal again.
The bike did get stuck in a heavy rain storm Saturday, but it's been dry since.
I was planning on riding the bike to a Dr. Appt. an hour away this afternoon (supposed to reach 60!!!), but wondering if I should.
Anyway...thoughts????? THANKS in advance!!!!
