i have to change the bulbs in my speedo / tach. once inside, i will check for busted insulation.

thanks again...
Ahah! It's actually a brake failure light coming on when you ride in the rain, not a check engine light at all. Check the wiring to and from the wheel speed sensors for any chafes or nicks. Check the plugs those wires connect to under the tank and (probably) along a frame rail somewhere on the rear of the bike. If you have a friendly dealer nearby, they can hook up to their diagnostic computer and probably pinpoint the circuit causing the trouble.
