Re: Gear indicates 1 gear, then 0, then 1
My 1150RT did the same thing but on the RT it was caused by water getting into the dash unit so you have two possibilities for the intermittent readings. In any case, always avoid using a power washer on any motorcycle. The high pressure forces water past the seals and will damage your wheel bearings, fork tubes, electronics, brakes, etc. If you just can't help yourself, stay away from all the above mentioned areas and any place you see a seal, which really doesn't leave much. If it still does it from just using a hose or riding in the rain, consider fixing the problem as my rider display eventually failed completely. All it would have taken was a little RTV silicone to prevent the failure.
