4 months ago my son charged battery, & washed bike and detailed it for me, i came in later and went for ride an noticed the eng light on so went home. thought well its saying battery.
bought new battery instaled, checked oil was a little to much so i pulled out to proper level. fired up run great but light is still on, came back home and noticed when u kill swithc it goes off, fliped switch on & came on with fuel pump.
when key is on and fuel switch is off the engine light is off.

Help us help you: Does it spit out a code? Cycle through the display to see if there is a check engine error code shown. (I am venturing to assume this is for the 2012 XCT, not for the 1999 bobber).

P.S.: My son's only 7 months - when did your son start washing your bikes? Do I have much longer, or what? :D

Oh, so I've got to wait another 20 some years for that benefit to kick in. :ltr:

Did you do a throttle point reset after you changed the battery? If not, here are the steps on how to do it: http://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=5448.

If that does not cure the check engine light, and if you have a voltmeter handy, measure the battery voltage - if it falls below 11 Volts, the check engine line will come on. And although you have a new battery, it could be a sign for another problem, like the voltage regulator.
