Default 2017 Highball check engine light

I have a 2017 Highball and the check engine light came on a couple days ago but the bike runs fine no issues. Does anyone have a idea?

BBob is right These bikes are finicky as all get out about batteries. That'd be the first thing I'd do. Counter intuitive but most likely. LMYR

I have a 2004 Vegas and if the engine starts slow on a cold day, it will run fine but the check engine light will come on and stay. There is nothing wrong with the engine, just the computer did not see all the signals it need to go off. Shut the engine off and restart, the light will go out.
Good luck, hope this helps.

This has happened on my 04 Kingpin a number of times too. Haven't seen it on my 11 XC yet though. Maybe they refined the system or maybe I've just been lucky so far.
