Default Service Engine Light?

Went riding yesterday, rode fine but about an hour in. when it starts the "service engine" light comes on. but i noticed that it just hit 50 hours.

ran fine the rest of the day, just wondering if i should be worried? or if i can reset that baby?, and just keep riding!

If it flashes 5 times and goes out every time you start the sled it is just a service bulletin reminder.
You can reset it.
I think it's in the owners manual.

Be sure to count the number of flashes. That will tell you if you need to take it in for a different problem.

If the MFD flashes "SERVCE" along with the check engine light, it's just the service interval as Ollie said.

Quote:
To reset the reminder at the existing interval:
1. Enter the service interval screen.
2. Press and hold the SET button for ten seconds, continuing to hold even after the display begins to flash.
3. When the display stops flashing, release the button. The service interval has been reset.

To reset the reminder at a new interval:
1. Enter the service interval screen.
2. Press and hold the SET button for five seconds, until the hours begin to flash.
3. Immediately release the button.
4. Press the button again up to five times to advance the reminder in 50-hour increments.
NOTE: The maximum interval is 250 hours.

To disable the service interval reminder, press the SET button once
after reaching 250 hours on the display. The gauge will display
“OFF”.

thanks gentlemen, don't have an owners manual. i'll make sure that it's five times. If it had a bigger problem wouldn't it go into a limp mode?

Big thanks mule for the reset procedure!

The 5-times thing will be accompanied by the "SERVCE" flashing on the MFD if it's the service interval. If that's the case, the number of flashes is irrelevant to the actual problem. If there's something throwing that code, SERVCE won't show on the display and the code will repeat until corrected.

5 flashes is the exhaust temp sensor, fwiw.

or it will get pig rich and dump a ton of fuel through the injectors. You'll smell it right away and it won't run for chit.

there's a couple of different "limp modes" in there, one dumps fuel, one cuts timing, etc depending on the code it will do something different.
