The light sometimes comes on when I push the power button, or it doesn't come on at all.It's an issue that I have. Indian is very interested in it, my shop guys want as much info as you can give them (speed, gear, how long did you ride etc.). They said it's not a ride issue at all.
I do not believe it has to do with the kickstand. Mine does it up or down. I can power the bike off and back on with no other changes and it stays off. It's just very intermittent like others have said.It has to do with the kick stand being up or down when starting the bike
