1190 adv buttons sticking

The up and down buttons are getting stuck on the controls on the left. Is anyone else having this problem or solved it?

all the electronics are giving me a bit of anxiety.. last night while setting things up I get a "General Failure" sign that takes up the entire screen. after some playing around I realized I had turned on the non-existent heated grips. turned them off and the message went away. its going to take a little getting used to.

This is similar to complex vehicles that are a fact of life nowadays. My Land Rover has over a dozen computers that talk to one another, throw faults when there are issues. I for one think this is one reason many vehicles have a bad rep when it comes to electronics...they tell you everything. If a voltage is off somewhere, you get a fault. The question is, do you want to know this?

Recently, I had a fault on the headlight alignment system of my LR when it gets very cold it seems. That may stress some people out who'd rather not know this, I guess. For me, the next time it is in the dealer, I have evidence to point toward an issue they can investigate and fix under warranty. This event can also serve as evidence later when it is out of warranty.

These are complex vehicles. The question is always, like many things in life, is the extra complexity worth the benefit?

I have never had ABS on a motorcycle, and I remember early systems that had issues (thank you BMW). Now I take delivery of an 1190 and grab a full lever on the front on a gravel road and it just stops. Is it worth it? Definitely. Is it worth it when it there is a car that pulls out in front of me in the future on that same gravel road? Most definitely.

this is my first bike with ABS as well, one of the reason I bought it was how well a friends Tennerre's electronics work. I'm sure I will be fine once I get used to it.

If it were me I would use Electrical Component Cleaner. I'd be worried about some of the additives in WD40. ECC is made for cleaning electrical connections.

WD40 is terrible to use on electronics. You're gonna make your sticky buttons even more sticky...
