    A month ago my bike died at a stop light, computer screen went blank then came back like I just turned the key. Started up and went in my way, thought maybe hit the kill switch somehow. Been noticing my trip odometer has been at 0.0 a couple times when I start it up, so knew something was up. Today I put the stand down with it in neutral and key turned off but still had power, and watched it just reset on its own. Anyone experience this or have an idea at troubleshooting?

    Sounds like a loose connector for powering the TFT or computer. I'd have the dealer look into it under warranty.

    that's a good place to start. The shop isn't open today so trying to get ahead of the curve on it.

    I don't have a service manual for it, but I bet there's a harness leading up to the screen itself. I'd start there. Make sure everything is well-seated. Pull on individual wires to see if you can replicate the problem. If you find one, tag it with a twist tie or something so the mechanics can find it easily, or insist they replace the wiring harness, but you'll wait for that harness a few weeks I think.

    well, response is to first try shutting down the bike with the key for a while and not the kickstand, and see if the display shuts down and resets on its own again. Couldn't find anything that was loose. I'm going to say this will resolve it by masking the issue, since it hasn't ever done so when actually riding (which would be horrible).

    Check the battery connections. If you have a screw that got loose on one of the terminals, that will do it too.
