Well, my engine light has come on twice: last year and on Saturday....and both were 'owner' induced. Last year I replaced the battery, simply because after 75,000 miles of 'starts', and getting ready for a 5,000 mile road trip, I wanted a fresh battery. After replacement, I took her a ride out 36 and the engine light came on. Hmmm....battery issue? YUP! The terminals were slightly loose, or slightly snug....take ur pick. Titened 'em up....no more light. Saturday, after bolting everything up from doing the 90,000 mile service, the light came on 100 yds from home. WTF? Now, I had started her after my service w/no issues, but.....after installing the forks, after a service/rebuild, I double checked the pre-load and hadn't totally seated the left fork electrical connection.
