I have just had the same problems on my 07 Dakar. The ABS light has been coming on intermittently but usually goes off again by itself.(don't know if this is related or not). Then this weekend on a rough road with strong washboard bumps at speed the bike misfired very briefly and then tacho read twice the actual rpm. I stopped and turned it off and on again and all reset OK. Then a little further on it happened again, the tacho reading twice what it should read. So just pulled in the clutch and coasted a little till the RPM's dropped to idle and it seemed to continue as normal after that. I have not had a chance to look at the bike since getting home but does any one have any more info on this problem? I also have a new battery in it, only 3 months old. Cheers G.
