    Hi all, my bike is a 2016 model. I recently washed it and it's now showing a lamp fault, all the lamps are fully functional. This is still showing after a few weeks, has any one else had this issue? I'm guessing I got some water into a connection which is giving the fault I'm wondering if dropping the power to the battery will sort it.
    Many thanks

    It's in your Owners Manual: If the the light bulbs/LEDs have been fixed then a restart of the bike should clear the LIGHT fault indicator.

    Did you check low+high beam lights, parking light, brake/tail light and all turn lights?

    Could be a valid signal in that a bulb or wire got loose somehow: in that case guenner is right and you too in maybe dropping power to the battery will solve it. Or it could be that the water just needs to dry up, in that case an excuse to take it for a ride

    Check the little "sidelight" that's next to the main headlight. Mine has gone out twice and it's hard to notice when it's out.

    The other one, if nothing is obvious, is the tail light bulb. If it fails a reduced voltage is sent to the brake light filament so that shows as a normal tail light it looks as though nothing is wrong.

    Disconnecting the battery is really not necessary. It requires to reset the date either by the dealer or a GS911 kind of tool.
