Just bought 2nd hand and it tipped over in the truck on ride home. Code light is flashing now. Did some research and it seems immobilizer? I rode it around a bit but still flashes when I turn off and take out the key. Ride longer?

It starts flashing when the engine is turned off, and will stay flashing for 48 hrs, as an immobiliser warning. It then turns off after those 48 hrs to save the battery, though the immobiliser still guards the bike.

Re: GTS 300ie - Flashing Code Light
Ok.. thanks. Guess it will sit for a couple days.

The flashing light from the immobilized is normal
It is supposed to flash when the bike is off...it is a 'burglar alarm' warning. Are you having some other problem?

No.. it tipped and the light went off. After 48hrs, it's off. No issue now. Thanks.
