I don't know but mine does it when I want to shift and it don't. I have the ES model, I don't know why an S model would do it.
You need to count the number of blinks. There is a chart in the service manual that tells you what to look at depending on how many times the display blinks.the gear indicator in the pod, sometimes while I am riding it will start blinking. when it blinks, it will flash whatever gear i am in and two dashes (- -) then it will show the gear again. What does this mean???
