    TES(suspension)

    On my SE 2013 there is happening something with the suspension light, the orange one with the shock-absorber in it. After starting up it keeps on flashing and won't go out. In the display it says that I should consult the manual. But for this problem the manual has no solution. The same problem I had on our trip to France in august. Finally it solved automatically when the calibration had run. I think that the calibration should come soon. But like it is now I cannot enter the programme for changing the suspension and have to stay in what is set up.
    Does anybody recognize this issue and is there a possibility to force the calibration?
    The fault is not permanent, sometimes it fades away after a few kilometers of driving or after a stop and renewed start.
    I hope someone knows how to handle this item.

    I had a similar situation one time and discovered my positive battery connection was a little loose.   Tightened it up and problem has not returned.  It is also possible you battery is getting weak if this is an intermittent problem.
    Good luck

    Don't know if I have the same issue or not.  Every once and a while mine will not calibrate when sitting still after startup but will after I move.  One time I just sat still and it did finish calibrating but it took awhile, maybe two minutes or a little more.  Most times, no problem.  Battery is relatively new and terminals are tight.

    I think you are supposed to wait until the light goes out before trying to start.   Mine sometimes takes a long time even when  it calibrating.  Also when starting especially if the temeprature is cold then it sometimes comes back in after starting and always says consult manual but then if i let it sit there a bit longer (like close the garage door) it goes out and takes the message away. 

    I have driven off with it flashing and it seems to not ever reset unless you are stoped at a junction say.

    My first thought was that this has to do with SE's in the Netherlands only :164:
    I fully agree with he description of John 348 as my SE has the same behavior.

    From the manual....

    System Calibration
    The system will re-calibrate the damper
    adjustment motors each time the ignition is
    turned on, and the pre-load adjustment
    motor after every 50 ignition on cycles, once
    the engine is started.

    Damper adjustment motor calibration takes
    approximately 2 - 3 seconds, and pre-load
    motor calibration takes around
    20 - 30 seconds.

    TES warning light
    To allow the system to calibrate correctly, the
    following procedure must be adhered to:
    Turn the ignition on. Do not start the
    engine.
    Wait for the warning light to stop flashing
    indicating that damper adjustment motor
    calibration is complete.
    Start the engine. If the warning light
    resumes flashing, the pre-load motor is
    being calibrated.
    Wait for the warning light to stop flashing
    before riding the motorcycle.
    Failure to follow this procedure will cause the
    re-calibration to be halted and the warning
    light to remain lit.
    In this case the warning light will extinguish
    once the re-calibration is next allowed to
    complete.

    I guess I didn't say it correctly.  Most times when turning the ignition on it will calibrate almost immediately.  Occasionally it will not and I wait and wait, then it may or may not complete the process.  There also have been times when I have gotten aggravated waiting and started it, threw in gear and took off and it will complete the process and read "adjustment complete".

    Mine did that a couple of times last year.  Sat there forever and it just kept showing calibrating.  I chalked it up to be on uneven ground or some other goofy reason.  I ride a mile, pulled over, shut it down and tried again.  Calibrated correctly at that time. 

    Have probably started it, calibrated, 500 times since then with no issues.
