But seriously, Year, model, mileage, description of the problem, your location since you chose not to put it in your signature. Help us out a little so we can possibly help you?

I also have a ‘17 Bobber and have not experienced any issues with false gear readings.
When is it happening ? And are you shifting positively or experiencing mis-shifts and jumping out of gear ?

@BOBBYP , PB17 was introduced on another thread and is located in the Philippines.

Shifting is smooth without any problems it’s just the false reading on the dash that comes after 10 mins of driving.

Trip to the dealer is in order then.
Maybe a software update or a sensor is not functioning correctly.

I wonder if disconnecting the negative terminal on the battery for a few hours could help reset the system, or if the 12 minute tune could help here.

Worth a shot if the dealer is far away from you.

Good idea. Worth a try.

Here is the procedure (thanks @BOBBYP for this info)

The procedure is simple.
1. Start your bike without touching the throttle.
2. Wait till the bike reaches 190F, This is simple the fan will come on!
3. Continue idling for 12 more minutes!

Probably best to shut off for a few mins.
Then set off.

That’s what I do, anyway.
