Some things never get checked. While riding and jumping my Rincon, I noticed a lot of wierd stuff going on in the ECU. Most notably was Limp mode, cutting in and out, and my oil light blinking. Would not shift and died in mid air once. My friend (also on a Red Rincon) mentioned that his son, and now mine had the same symptoms. I didn't think about the battery as I had been wet earlier and suspected wet components. Should have known better. Trail Fix! I inspected the battery to find the Positive (red) terminal was really loose, and the negative was also loose. Since retightening them (poor dealer set up is the complaint here, and the fact that it had just come from it's second full service) Anyway, don't use a thread locker on the threads because when the system is on, there is a small amount of heat generated and the terminals swell and contract. I keep this inspection as a mandatory look during the clean up after a ride. My Rincon runs great with almost 600 Km on it now!
