Sometimes the red key light on my tach is on the entire time I ride, sometimes it off the entire time and other times it just does whatever, cant figure this thing out and neither could a guy at the dealer. Anybody know the deal??

Assuming you have security and if so have you replaced the battery in the FOB lately? Mine started doing this and I learned the FOB battery was at the end of its life.

I bet you have a pinched wire somewhere. That key light is an indicator of electrical problems.

First place to check is your front turn signals. Do you take your outter fairing off a lot? Chances are you have a pinched wire there where the lights go into the fairing.

That was my issue when I had this problem.

I found a post on another HD forum, one guy said his was due to him replacing his turn signal lights with LED's without a load equalizer. I have the exact same issue. I plan on getting custom dynamics LED's with the load equalizer, but that's going to have to wait for a bit. So I'm hoping this is what it is.

Mine to stated to flash after Custom Dynamics LED & load eq installed. I did the battery in the fob also. Still will blink sometimes. I have not taken the fairing off of mine. Let me know what you find.

I would go with the Biketronic load equalizer. I have the CD equalizer & it still has feedback when using the CB.
