My HS suffered this disco lights failure back in October. She's been sitting in the garage ever since due to being out of work and no money for the repair. To add insult to injury my local Ducati dealership went out of business so now I have no place to take her nearby. Next closest dealerships are 2.5 hours away in NJ or 3 hours away in central PA.

Once I get her fixed I'm going to have to sell her. I can't own a bike that doesn't have an authorized service center in my local area.

Maybe you can contact the dealer or DNA and explain your situation. If you feel up to it, maybe they can send the replacement parts for you to diy. But I would definitely call and start the process, as it should be covered. Then you can think about the next steps.

One other thought is if you have access to a vehicle with a hitch, you can rent a u-hall trailer for about $15 a day....just some thoughts...maybe you just felt like venting;0).

Venting, definitely. I'm pretty pissed with my HS since its forced me to ride this winter out on my Suzuki Savage which can't power my heated gear. So I'm a bit bitter from being bitter cold for the past several months riding the thumper.

I read that DIYing this repair was a non-option due to having to reflash the ECU in order to sync up the new dashboard. Did I read it wrong?

I'll probably offer my neighbor with the panel truck a case of beer to haul the bike to the shop next month. In the long term I'll definitely need a trailer hitch if I don't trade the bike in.
Seeing as a Moto Guzzi dealer opened up 25 minutes away from me I am tossing around the idea of trading the HS in for the V85. Might be a good move considering.

Yeah, I'm sure you're right about the re-flash, makes sense. I was just trying to get you out of your mood a bit and onto solving the problem....good move about borrowing a truck, the sooner it's done, the better and you'll a have far better ROI on your recently "updated by dealer" running bike. Good luck!
