2016 shipped with a firmware bug with respect to the ignition switch. Is possible to turn the key to 11:00 and see the dash do its boot dance, but the starter button does nothing but set the CEL. Maybe you don't remember the starter not working? Anyway, if it didn't work once when you pushed the button then this is for certain what your problem is.

Wiggle the ignition key and get it properly clicked to 12:00 and bike starts but CEL has to be cleared with the scan tool.

Dealer should clear the CEL and update firmware for free.

We would need to know what the stored fault codes are to diagnose further........ a check engine light does not necessarily mean anything bad, but points to some item needing attention.

To save a trip and expense at the dealer, you should get an OBD reader and the OBD adapter harness so you can read all the stored diagnostic codes yourself and even clear them.

Wow again, Steve. Your knowledge is unsurpassed for sure, but I obviously must put together a comprehensive colour chart ranked by speeds... and you know where I will place the Lipstick Pink one.....

-V1 Back from 160 mile ride. Sure enough RaYzermann check engine went out shortly after I left my driveway. OK on no OBD. Thanks!
