Flashing: See Indicator Lamps: Models Except FLHR, FLHRC and Indicator Lamps: FLHR, FLHRC. On vehicles with ABS, the ABS lamp begins flashing when the vehicle is turned on. The flashing lamp indicates that the system is in selfdiagnosis mode. It continues to flash until motorcycle speed exceeds 3 mph 5 km/h.
ABS is not operational until the lamp turns off. Solid: Continuous illumination of the lamp indicates an ABS malfunction. The ABS is disabled and the brakes are operating as if they were nonABS brakes. See Indicator Lamps: Models Except FLHR, FLHRC.
On equipped models, the currently selected gear (16) is displayed in the odometer window. The gear indicator is calculated from the vehicle speed and engine speed. The gear indicator remains blank when the transmission is in neutral, the clutch lever is pulled in or the vehicle is not moving. The gear indicator is momentarily inaccurate depending on rider clutch use characteristics and clutch wear.
This condition can occur if the clutch is allowed to slip either due to excessive wear, misadjusted clutch or if the operator rides the clutch.
