    Hi, have you just refitted crash bars? If so you have probably caught the wire that runs down the left hand side to the sensor - easily done. You can repair this with a bit of effort and a soldering iron. If not the sensor will have gone US.

    The bike only has 200 mikes on it. I did change the oil at fifty, maybe I pinched a wire. I will have it looked at tomorrow. Brining it to the shop for the "first" oil change. I'll have them take a look.
    Thanks.

    Just reach up behind the crash bar arm that mounts to the left side frame rail and you'll be able to feel if there is a wire running behind the frame that is caught under the crash bar arm's clamp. If so, a 6mm allen wrench and 30 seconds is all you'll need to resolve the problem.
