    Will do. Tommorow when it's lighter out.
    I checked the flickering, and it's only the CEL that flickers not the headlight.

    No the compass was to confuse Himma owners in the Northern Hemisphere. All I can say my one would be a great way to get lost.

    Could just be a loose wire some where. Check around the fuel pump. :-)

    Bad fuel can happen at any time, so I wouldn't discount that.

    I wouldn't wait for your service either, just drop into your dealer and have a chat. If he's anything like mine, he'll immediately have a quick look and maybe it's something their familiar with.

    If you can, check your battery voltage, maybe that's on its way out (people have some rather mixed experiences with them)

    My compass seems to be OK but the temp gauge is way off ( it was 85 today but the gauge said it was 103 ) and the fuel gauge is way off also. How many miles should I expect until it is really near empty.

    One weeks lockdown is over here in South Australia, but didn't miss much as we have had almost a month of cold wet weather, swirling in from the Southern ocean and Antarctica.
    Clockwise.
    Had over 250 mm up here on Mt Lofty , not far short of half a years worth, and the same forecast as far out as they predict.
    Might stop the farmers complaining, until they start on about flood relief , or------------!

    Normal, the sensor is under the seat. Some move it up the front into clean air. I've never worried too much about knowing the air temp. If I can't feel my fingers its too cold, if I'm dribbling out the sleeves of my jacket its too hot. At least its accurate until the engine warms up. Open ended on the fuel. Depends on how you ride I guess. I only know there is about 5liters left when mine switches to that "F" and starts counting up. Only real way to know is to carry some spare fuel and run it till it dies.

    If yours is EFI then running it dry is not such a good idea.
    You won't run out if you refill when it starts the Countdown.
    Not much of an answer but how much is a fuel pump?

    The temperature gage probe is getting some extra heat that coming from the engine. Relocating the probe is not an uncommon mod.

    My Himma has about 5 liters of fuel left when the F trip comes on.

    Every time i used the Mekong as a navigational aid, it wound up being a very busy day at work.

    Both of these are normal. You can relocate the thermometer sender (it’s under the seat, where it picks up engine heat; I moved mine to a point under the headlight), which will make it somewhat less inaccurate. The low-fuel warning on mine trips when I’ve used about 2.5-2.6 gallons (about 150-180 miles under normal circumstances). There is at least one usable gallon left in the tank at that point. It’s not exactly clear how much gas is still in the nominal 3.8 gallon tank when the pump starts sucking air.
    Speaking of loose wires...

    Check the connector going to the right handlebar switch pod. It's in that big wad of connectors that's awkwardly crammed in behind the headlight. I have had the experience of a not-fully-engaged connector here. When I rented a Himalayan back in 2019, I found the headlight was intermittent because the left-side handlebar pod connector wasn't properly seated. A good hard squeeze (which provoked a reassuring "click" from the lock tab on the connector) solved the problem. Since you say you have a solid headlight but a flickery "check engine" light, the right switch pod connector is a possibility--it's in the path from the fuse block to the EFI relay (through the kill switch), but NOT in the path from the fuse block to the headlight.
