It did a EWS again a three weeks ago and my bright recent college grad son said use electric contact cleaner then WD40. No problem for 4 weeks now. Give it a try, not saing I will not have a problem again but we'll see.
An intermittent EWS fault could indicate that the key is at fault, and not the ring. Carry a spare key with you and report the fault to your dealer, they may order a new key for you. I got this info from my dealer where when the bike will not start at all, it was the ring but what you described turned out to be the key. who knows
