Center Kickstand Problem

My first post. I am new to this site but think I can get some good advice from you. I just purchased a 2005 LT a couple of weeks ago and really enjoying it. I don't know if this has anything to do with the power kickstand, but I installed the Kisan modulating headlight and taillight today. After complete all appeared fine, until I went to put it on the center stand. No reaction and the stand will not go down.

The indicator light on the right blinks fast and a lightning bolt in a rectangle appears in the multifunction display(steady, not blinking). Are the lights causing a problem or do I have a separate problem. Any Ideas?

Re: Center Kickstand Problem

It is the Kisan Lights for the tail light- Give them a call and they have a fix for it. Let them know the problem as they are familiar with it. The light stuff is messing with the bulb monitor which then tricks the centerstand. Don't you just wish for the good old days when things were simpler? But I do enjoy the new ride performance.
