Just a quick question guys....does anyone know what the three vertically stacked led lights to the right of our tachometers are are for??? I know one is for the side stand. I just started Her the other day and noticed that the middle light (top to bottom) was on while riding. I have never noticed this before and was a little concerned. I then shut Her off and started Her back up and it was off......??? Since then it has not come back on while riding...does anyone seem to know what this indicator is for??? I wish I could tell you what color it is but I'm color blind (don't laugh too hard). Ha! Any help would certainly be appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

sidestand is top (orange/yellow)
rev limiter is middle (yellow)
alarm/immobilizer is bottom (red)




Why it would stay on should be looked at, unless yer whooping the snot out of her.:yo:

I have the exact same bike and it does something similar as well. According to the manual, this indicator only comes on when you hit 11600 RPM. I had this light come on a few times right upon starting when giving the bike a bit of light throttle (Guzzi habit) -- not even at half that much. Now a couple of times while riding I may have actually hit 11600 as the light came on while riding. Recycling the ignition typically resets it but not always.

Does seem a bit off...:confused:

It is a check engine light. It came on my 2012 rr and the dealer found that there was a fault with the exhaust. oxygen sensor issues or in my case a stuck shut butterfly valve that was cause by crimped actuator cable. Manual of course does not even explain what this light is for.

The other light comes on when the side stand is down. one will flash when you hit 11500 rpm, but if it just stays on while riding then I believe it is a check engine

good luck

I see the same thing on my bike ('12 1090RR). It's only the rev limiter while riding - and revving of course!

But sometimes it comes on when I start the bike and stays on for the entire ride. Sometimes turning it off and on again will clear it but sometimes not.

Thanks Billyray22 - this sounds much more feasible. I'll have the dealer take a look!

Thanks Red Baron.....I really do appreciate it (color description an all)...it helps. That way when I speak with the dealer etc...I will be able to give them the color as well as location of the led. I'll mention it to them and see what they have to say...I'll the group posted.

Thanks, Dave K.:yo:

Makarushka,

Interesting...yeah, I've seen the light come on a few times when I've come close to the rev limiter or hit it... But this is the first time it came on out of nowhere and stayed on. Very strange. In some ways, it's good to know that it's happening to someone else. That tells me that there is some type of solution or reason why.... I'll contact MV, or my local dealer to find out what the deal is. Thanks for your reply!!! I'll make sure to keep the group posted.

Thanks BillyRay22... I'll make sure to look into it sooner than later. On a side note..." You said you had a limo!?" "YEAH!?"...:yo:

Thanks Dave K.

Dave K., have you or your dealer resolved this permanently? My bike will now intermittently light this LED upon start, with no throttle input, and it will stay on for the whole ride just as you described. All the while, the bike lately feels like it's not fueling as well as it used to; it seems rougher and lurching more, particularly under 6K and small throttle (lambda acting up?) though this is subjective of course.

Sounds indeed like it's acting as a check engine light of sorts due to some intermittent but persistent issue. My dealer has no idea about this light other than what's in the manual, and their contact at MV USA says this amber light comes on when (direct quote from their email) "approaching revlimiter", while the red LED below is "revlimiter"...? Does not make sense or at least does not paint the full picture, since the light comes on with the bike standing in place, idling, 2-3 seconds after start. Not even touching the throttle.

My VDSTS Pro Software does not show any error codes, active or past; maybe the dealer's system would -- I will bring the bike to them next Saturday to see...

Hey Makarushka,

Sounds strange to me too. My dealer pretty much told me the exact thing yours told you. Overall, it doesn't add up to me either. On top of all that, my dealer also said, "well it can't be too big of a deal....ride the bike for now, and we'll run it on the computer the next time you're in." My dealer is about 2 1/2 hours from me, and I haven't had a chance to go in yet. I also have a tank issue going on with the bike, where they will be warranty replacing the tank. Oddly enough, the light has not come back on in the last month. ???? I know I sound like I'm dragging with the whole issue, but the weather hasn't been too great for riding around here lately. I'm just gonna wait until I take the bike in for the gas tank. Please keep me posted whatever you say find:) have a god one!!

Dave K.
