You have a code stored that is telling you that something is wrong.

I am not quite sure on how to retrieve them but count the light flashes when you first turn the key on. There will be short and long ones.

I'll see if I can pull up just how to do it from my repair manual.

Ok, when you first turn the key on don't start it but count the flashes. The first ones will be long ones followed by faster ones.

The first long flashes will be the first number in the code and then the short faster ones will be for the second number in the code.

here is a list of codes that can be pulled this way:

Ugh,,this bike only has 150 miles on it. Again, I should have kept my 07 Grizzly.
Thanks Jim. I've saved the list of codes.
The wrench doesn't flash when I turn on the key. And, the check engine light lights briefly, like all of the other indicators, then goes out.

Sad to say but time to run it down to the dealer


They may have to use their code reader on it

Lets hope for a simple fix. No warranty. I bought it used with really low miles.
I haven't really rode the bike yet. It'll go to the dealer, but not anytime soon.
I'll report back here when they find something out.
Thanks Guys.

The dealer will likely have an upfront cost to check it out, I am assuming it is working fine? If so, negotiate the check up with the dealer or just ignore the light. Usually the problem is not going to do damage, but one never knows.

I'm thinking along the same lines

Check in your owners manual and it may tell you what you need to do.

In my 2016-17 repair manual it does state that there are codes that are unreadable through the light flashes and need to be read by the code reader. And that code reader is Yamaha only, I haven't even seen any for sale on the secondary market.

I haven't heard of a maintenance schedule that will be indicated by the lights, but on a newer machine you never know. That's what the owners manual is good for, it will give you a lot of information on that specific model.

You shouldn't need to disconnect your battery to reset the maintenance display.

RedRocket translated the manual correctly.
It's like a 3rd trip meter.
I reset trip A, the wrench was still present.
I reset trip B, the wrench was still present.
I reset the maintenance trip, which I didn't know existed, now the wrench is gone. I suppose it will come back when I reach 1 mile.
Thanks Guys.

It seems to me there are 4 selections to keep track of the miles.
Odometer.
Trip A.
Trip B.
Maintenance. When I cycle through these via the center select button, the wrench shows when in the "maintenance screen".
Since all the mileage meters had the same mileage, nothing had ever been reset to zero and I suspect the display was set to the maintenance mode all along.
