Electrical issue gear indicator and octometer

Hi, I have a garage kept 2013 DL650 with 5k miles. All service and recalls done and I'm the original owner.
Lately I noticed on the dash the outside temp/ time indicator changing on its own as well as the odometer / trip meter changes as well. It happens when I change gears but the gear position indicator is correct.
So I'm riding along changing gears up or down and the trip meter changes as well on its own as if I was trying to change it by clicking the lever on the left handlebar switch. I can manually change it to where I want by clicking the lever but as soon as I change gears it also changes the dash trip readings and temp/time clock.
Only mods are heli risers for the bars. HELP Thanks

It is not your clutch leaver manipulating something is it ????

Yep, your clutch lever is hitting the menu button.
I did the same thing the first time I adjusted the position of the clutch lever. Took me a while to figure it out.

Thanks guys... clutch lever touching is something I never thought off. I was ready to tear this thing apart looking for a short.
