Default Pesky freeze warning light

Any easy way of disabling it? Like the over bright high beam light it is just distracting and of little use as I already know it's bloody freezing!!!

How about a small piece of black electrical tape to block it.

+1. Also good to block those pesky check engine lights on your vehicle.

I have electrical tape on the high beam light, but the freeze warning light is under the glass of the rev counter. I'll give it a try though.

If only it were that easy to keep the feeling in my fingertips!
Until now, those were my freeze warning devices.

My old Wee doesn't warn me but my beemer does. The RID (Rider information display) flashes below 38 degrees and stays solid at 32 and then flashes again below 32.
It's very generous of the manufacture to tell you when to turn your Gerbing on.
It's not a bad warning that the road surface might be getting exciting too!
