Gear indicator issues Street triple r

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Trix, Sep 22, 2012.

  1. Hey guys, I have a fairly new street triple r 2012.
    This morning I had my engine light come on and my gear indicator go from 6 to 1, and then stay there - regardless of what gear I was in. Although this was such a fun thing to happen at 110kph, it didn't seem to make any difference to the bike.
    I took it quickly down to the mechanics and they said it seemed to be a faulty gear indicator, but couldn't fit the bike into fix it 'till monday. I had an alarm fitted recently which has been wired a bit oddly so the seat doesn't sit right anymore, and a quickshifter installed a few weeks back as well. I'm worried one of these things has caused the problem, or is it just something that may happen to a new bike?
    Any thoughts or explanations would be fantastic, as it's a little into unknown territory for me.
