Digital wrench display on newer sportsman?

My friend has a newer sportsman 400ho (2011, same as the newer 2012-13 model 400ho/500ho). When he starts the bike from a cold start up the wrench will flash on the display for about a minute untill the bike gets warmed up and then never returns. But we have noticed that after the bike sits for a minute (after warmed up, and being ran for a long period of time) the wrench will flash for just a few seconds at start up and then will not return once again. Anyone know what could cause this? Being a carb'd bike it doesnt make much since to me. Maybe a stored code?

Time for an oil change.... as it can be programed to flash at start up for this. Has he recently hit the 20 or 50 hour mark?

Yes it possible could be. I sold it to my good friend (and I financed it for him). He is not allowed the title, owners manual, or extra key untill he pays it off. I performed the 20hr service on it myself before I sold it to him. The bike now has +/-50 hours and is half paid for so I suppose he may need the manual at least. Thanks for the advise.

That just means on the last oil change the maintenance hour reminder was not reset, the manual explains how to do it.

Yep, its just a timer. You can set it for anything up to 99 hrs. or turn it off all together. If you didn't reset it when you changed oil it has now hit the factory set 50 hr. mark.

You really should at least give him the manual. I understand hanging on to the other stuff, but this is something he needs.

I don't 'finance' anyone anymore. Had a couple of guys I worked with buy things from me, and then got lazy about making their 'payments'. Another thing to consider is that if it's registered in YOUR name and something happens, guess who might be liable?
Just saying....
