Any ideas of what is causing this? I’m very new to the Versys.
Thanks for the help.

Thank you kindly. Rear brake light switch was the culprit. Way out of adjustment. After much searching I found where it is. Now getting a wrench in there is a different story, luckily I have small hands and could turn the bolt with my fingers. Learned something about this bike today.

I have had the rear brake switch get gunked up with road grime, oils and debris on a few bikes, which requires cleaning and lubricating. I eventually threw them away and now use hydraulic switches connected through the rear master cylinder.

I was about to reply with this solution. Same thing happened with my V650, and it was an easy fix. I was also able to turn it with my wee hands/fingers. :LOL: Glad you were able to fix it!

Yes, me too. If we were able to turn the bolt with our fingers I’m guessing the bolt must loosen up with the engine vibration so I put a drop of Blue Loctite on the threads, hopefully that will keep it from turning loose. Thanks for your help.
