    Flashing gear indicator

    This topic hasn't been discussed for several months but I'd like to add my experience to this. This same thing has happened to me 3 times in almost 4 years. The first time was during a trip and it did not want to start the next morning. And after I got back from that same trip but then figured out the quick fix to get it started. Grab the front brake while hitting the starter. It must override a safety mechanism so in case the bike is in gear it won't lurch forward when started. Just a speculation. And it happened again just yesterday after just being ridden the day before for in town errands. It started up with the brake applied and as I was riding it while the gear box was flashing every second. But the bike behaved normal. When I got back on a couple hours later it was fine like nothing happened. My battery is fine, brand new. And since it is each episode was about two years apart with no other issues. Can't be anything too serious I hope. I have a 2013 DCT

    Flashing gear indicator

    This happens to me on my 2015 700 on my way home from work. I parked it in the garage, turned it off. I turned it back on and it was gone. I hope it will stay this way.

    Curious to see how many others have had this happen and at what frequency.

    This happened to me this past weekend. Flashing gear #, otherwise the bike performed normally. It would even switch from D to S. Turned off, then back on at a light, and everything returned to normal. I suspect that it's an early indication of a dying battery. I've owned the bike for 3 years and have never replaced it. I bought it used with <1500 miles on it. I have no reason to assume that its ever been replaced. I plan on getting a new one today.
