Tilt lock still intermittently coming on when key is turned.
Battery replaced, switch replaced, ignition switched replaced. Pressure sensor replaced. Once it decides to work,yellow light comes on and it works perfectly. Sometimes it maybe 10 times turning on and off then it will work. What else can I do?

How old is the bike? Could be the master cylinder is worn out.

As soon as the lock activates it works perfectly.
If it was the master cylinder it would not operate. Once I bled the hydraulics it firmed up. And when the tilt is engaged it is firm.

how's the engine tickover when you're not able to turn tilt-lock on?

the yellow light indicates that the revs are low enough for it to be used.

Engine is below 2k max . The yellow light comes on intermittently. Turning on and off maybe 10 times. Sometimes 1-2 other times 20.
Once the yellow comes on it is fine. Drives well and revs out.
If I get off the seat the red light comes on.

Once the yellow comes on I can disengage the tilt lock on the switch.
