OK, new owner question...

Do the ABS and TC lights on the dash come on until the bike is moving? When I start mine they are both lit, and even if I change the TC mode it stays on. ABS as well...

Thanks folks....

My ABS stays on until I start moving. I don't know what a TC light is.

2015 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 bought new 4/26/17
2015 Victory Cross Country bought new 7/11/15 (dyno tuned 118hp 116tq)
If it's not broken, make it better
My take on oil: Name brand, wet clutch compatible.....BAM good to go.

Both require movement from the sensors on the wheels to work, so the lights remain on until your rolling.

The owners manual is your friend...

I like my TC off (light on) mostly, so I'm pretty oblivious to it. ABS light behaves like every other bike I've had with ABS, goes out when you get rolling.

Got the manual coming in the mail from Suzuki. This is my first ABS bike. All the other bikes have the ABS in my right hand...
