Just experienced this today, 1st ride of the year, total 185 miles on a 2010 600 Shift. It was idling when I noticed the Volt meter on the display flashing and the meter at one bar. If I touch the brake or any switch on the bars the display screen blanks, tach needle drops, no lights head or tail. It idles and runs great regardless. If I let it set a while it will start off with full volt meter, all lights gauges work.. Then volts will fade away and everything off, except the motor. Called the dealer where I bought it and they have "never heard of this". I checked all wires no frays or cuts, I mean its brand new. other dealer says stator or volt regulator (??, I think I'm saying those right) and therefore not holding the charge produced by the motor. It is NOT electric start so I'm kinda lost as to what would be holding the charge if there is no battery. I guess off its to the dealer. ANY input/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. It was an awesome 9 miles to say the least. Oh Boy.
