Hello 3 wheeler friends.

My 2015 MP3 500 has developed an issue with the tilt lock.

I can activate and de-activate the tilt lock using the handlebar switch but not when I sit on the saddle and twist the throttle. The red tilt lock light warning stays on when I sit on the saddle and the warning light does go out when I deactivate the tilt lock via the switch.

I purchased a second hand saddle after being assured that the seat occupancy sensor was working but after swapping the saddles this has not cured the problem.

Has anyone else on here experienced a similar problem and identified a solution? I would be grateful to hear.

Happy ridings .

Thanks so much 🙏
Hiya.

Thanks so much itís now fixed. there were some broken wires where the connector was. Should have looked there in the first place as I went and bought a second hand seat thinking itís the seat sensor.

👍🏻👍🏻🙏
