    Red triangle and EFI on dash

    After about 10 miles today the red warning triangle came on steady and EFI showed up on the dash. Bike is running fine with full power. User manual isn't very helpful suggesting that a flashing red triangle is a "severe failure" and the bike will go into limp to dealer mode.

    Anyone else had this or have any ideas?

    Do you have the healtech? Mine does this from time to time.

    It's most likely just the exhaust valve and will need to be adjusted. Common issue on this bike

    The red light is used for all sorts of stuff, on the new dash its used for traction control warning too. Red on steady is a minor errors the system found. Red Flashing is serious fault.

    I wish the bike had more information on a fault like my Dorso 1200 did. That bike gave you the codes on the display. One reason I setup Guzzidiag on my PC and got the cables to read the codes. You can then tell what is serious or not and decide to go to a dealer or just do the fix yourself. Its more than likely the exhaust valve as that is a very common culprit. I've had the brake switch on the front lever generate a code too, but that came with a flashing ADD icon.

    abnknows, no i haven't fitted a Healtech ESE. Although might do if this problem persists. I seems to have fixed itself after a couple of hundred miles yesterday.

    Sounds like the exhaust valve then. Dealer will need to adjust it

    I've just had an intermittent "Red Triangle of death" warning light, booked into the dealer and it is an unknown code fault ( not in the techs book of codes) for a failure of the ADD rear compression system for the suspension. The bike is still rideable but if the rear compression is adjusted to its hardest setting the light comes back on. Waiting for the UK Aprilia guys to come back with a solution, but at the moment it looks like a new rear ADD unit. All to be done under warranty.
