tc and abs lights on after a slip on muffler installed?

I need some advice! I installed a new Yoshimura slip on muffler on my 2014 dl1000 strom yesterday. When I started my bike the TC light and the ABS light stays on and will not go out. Called Yoshimura and they assured me it had nothing to do with changing the muffler. All I know, is that it never had happened before until I put the muffler on. Can anybody give me any advice as to what happened and why? Thanks

Take a look at the rear wheel sensor. Chances are you did something to move it or did something to the wire leading to it. It's more likely affected than the front wheel sensor when working with the exhaust.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

This may sound silly, but where is the rear wheel sensor? Thanks for your help!

I installed the same pipe and had no issues. I'd check your wires.

ABS light will stay on until you start moving, TC light is always on if TC is turned off.

Its one clamp and 1 bolt, you wouldnt have been anywhere near any wires/sensors. Did you have it on a center stand at all running the engine with the bike in gear? or with the rear wheel turning from clutch drag?
I suggest as others have , to ride it

My V2 has had the exhaust change to aftermarket twice (5 minute job) and no issues at all.
