    I own a 2017 RoadMaster and love the ride. I have been having a problem where you try to start the bike and nothing it is like the kill switch is open. First time it happen I was near Knoxville and under warranty they re-flashed the ECU. It has happen maybe 10 more time but after it sat for anywhere from 5 minute to 15 it would start, until this last time. I was in Florida and all the lights on the dash came on as it was running. Check engine, voltage, kickstand, all of them. so I turned it off and it would restart. so I hauled it home to Tennessee and it still would start after two weeks. Got it to the dealer rolled it off the trailer and it started and it didn't throw any codes or errors. Has anyone ever seen or heard of this? Need help!!

    Thanks Larry

    Hate to say it, but this sounds very suspiciously like a loose battery terminal.

    Where in Tn are you? Several of us bracket that state and a couple ride through it regularly.

    Larry,

    Welcome to the forum.

    I dont have a RM, and I am normally not very useful....at all, just ask she who must be obeyed.

    Has already been mentioned, but I would start with the battery/battery connections.
    I have heard others say Fob batteries as well.

    Good luck sir, and ride often.
