    Yellow LIght coming On/Off..Made it home. Turned bike off. Waited! turned bike on. Yellow light came on. Then I discovered the Tach Not working! What reason did the Yellow Light come On for??? Bike is running normally. Oil light not indicating oil required. Today went over some bumps on my journey. Under seat is Ignition Module. Only thing new is a different seat.

Yellow is the Check engine light.  It's kind of goofy since it is a image of a V-8 engine, but that is the universal sign for check engine.
