ok, so I swapped out my final drive on my rt, I had a spare off a gs i bought for 350 on ebay.i had no problems with mine but just wanted to try the lower gearing. went for a test run everything great I had a little more low end. then i noticed the gear indicator not working. when back at the house I disconnected and grounded the positive battery wire, now everythings ok. WTF , any ideas? I also cleaned the connection on the tranny but no difference till the battery disconect.

Just a thought but when you grounded the wire all the electric functions went to full off. When you reconnected the bike's computer had to look for all devices and reloaded the gear indicator. I have had this happen on many vehicles. Just like the throttle body opening, after a battery switch you have to open and close the throttle a couple of times for it to know where everything is set.
