Sorry for the late response I get so much junk email these days and therefore takes me longer to go through all my emails . It started about a month before I quit writing which would've been last October and my turn signa about a month before I quit writing which would've been last October and my speedometer stopped working and then a few days after that my blinker stopped working and the starter button doesn't work . I will have to get back to you about the security key on the dashboard because my bike is at a friends shop that's trying to fix it He can't seem to figure out how to fix it. He's checked and replaced all the fuses. If you remove the seat and there's a harness of tons of wires underneath the seat that are all jammed together.
