First problem seems to be occurring now. Occasionally, I have no power (display won't light up) when I turn the key to the "on" position. Waiting a few minutes and retrying usually works. Additionally, while riding, my temp light will blink, all the characters on the display will light up, and the gear display will toggle between ESP mode and Drive. This doesn't always occur, but seems to be happening on a more regular basis. I have looked over all electrical connections and don't see anything obvious. Any ideas? Is my display going bad?

Sounds like a loose connection that is gradually getting more and more loose. I would just grab a wrench and physically check tightness of all connections I could find.

I would check all the groung points, take the terminals off and clean the frame under them. While it is doing what you are describing, have you tried moving the key in the switch? I have seen the switch go bad.

That is what mine was doing and it was the positive cable on the battery.

Same here, it seems Honda does not do a good job of making sure the battery cables are tight. I happened to be at the dealer when mine acted up($100.00 refund safety course). The battery cable was only hand tight. I would say they bring them on the showroom floor hand tight so they can be loosened so no starts them up. The sales person will then tighten it back up by hand and off you go with your battery cable not tight enough.
