- get the bike in neutral. rock the bike back and forth while shifting down to first, then lift it into neutral.

- measure the battery voltage. if it is 12.8 vdc, replace the battery in the hands free device and try again.

- if the battery voltage is not 12.8 vdc, charge the battery try again. if the problem persists, replace the battery in the hands free device and try again.
