Are you 100% sure there isn't some side stand microswitch malfunction?
Perhaps next time, just put the side stand down, then back up to see if this works?
Hi Joe, and thanks for your comments!
As I have learned, if any of EHCS no-go flags are on (brake applied, bike on gear, side stand down, bike moving) the little exclamation mark starts flashing on the left side of the gear indicator. Now in my case this feature works if I touch the brake handle for instance: The yellow EHCS light blinks fast and the exclamation mark flashes too.
Now, obviously, there is no other indicator for the "overheating" than the yellow EHCS light flashing at fast pace. So I must have this on when ever the unit will not work.
So, I guess I have to locate this control unit first and try to see if anything can be done to it...Thanks John for giving a hint of the location.
In case it is a sealed package there is not much a Sunday electrician like myself can do...

Channing, if I understand this correct, you are referring to Tony having installed some LED bulbs in place of the OEM bulbs. And this resulted to his EHCS not working... Sounds interesting. I have regular brake light bulbs but I have also some add-on LED brake lights, I have hooked up the center OEM bulb to work as brake light and rear fog light with a help of a diode. Plus I have a Dauntless hitch connector hooked up (without an isolator relay).
So I do have some "disturbing factors" in my brake light circuit if those really would affect the center stand function. However, all these I have had for quite some time already...
