I have not tested it but just in case it is not an issue but a feature??

Anyone else heard the same? (I will check with my dealer tomorrow to confirm)
Well that kind of defeats the purpose of having an on/off switch for the traction control.
I don't buy it. And the manual says nothing about it other than turning it off and on.
It says nothing about two different modes.
One of the guys I was riding with is the sales manager where I bought my bike and he even saw the problem.
He rides a 1200GS.
He placed a call to his techs and they never mentioned anything about two modes.
I suspect when I disconnected the battery I caused the problem.
I'm taking it to the dealer tomorrow for service and should have an answer then.
