    Valve spring failure warning

    Has anyone seen this message before ?
    After my crash at the weekend I managed to get back out for three sessions. But I mullered the rocker switch and switch cluster.
    Today I thought I'd try and see if I could scroll through the dash. As soon as I moved the rocker switch a warning came up saying valve spring failure proceed with caution or words to that effect. I didn't get long enough to read it properly before the dash went blank. Now the dash will not even light up and bike won't start.
    I have checked the dash, switch gear and main fuse, all are good. I've now disconnected the battery to see if something resets tomorrow.
    I rang the dealer but they've never heard of the warning before.
    I'm hoping that when I put the new switches on this all be ok as it worked untill I touched them.

    Dunno, I've got a full system and it went down on the other side.
    Dealer did say maybe a fork sensor, but fix the switch gear first.

    Fix the obvious and then see where you're at - certainly a worrying message - is yours due a replacement head anyway?

    I don't suspect any form of engine issues.
