So I am riding to work today, and my 696 check engine light came on for about 40 seconds and then shut off. At the end of my 30mi bike ride the engine light came on again.

This bike only has 70Mi on it and is only 4 days old. What do you guys think is the problem?

I would like to take it into the shop tonight to see what the problem is.

Has this happened to anyone?

Happened twice on my 1100 S with less than 800 Km on the clock.
The built in Diagnostic system on the instrument pod showed
EXVL meaning exhaust valve.
This valve is actually in the header pipe and controlled by a
small servo motor. It is used to control noise emissions at 4000
RPM.
I had blown the servo motor.
It was replaced.
About another 120 kilometers into the new servo, it showed again.
I have been assured that it has zero impact on performance and will have it replaced at my convenience.

Can you run a diagnostic check on the 696 via the instrument pod?

I am not sure what the diangnostic check is?
I just got the bike and I have never owned one before.

Should I take it to the dealer? How much does that servo cost if that is the problem?

What is the instument pod? (Sorry I am a newbie, is this the instrument cluster?)

Yes, the instrument pod is the same as the instrument cluster and supplies
you with vital information such as speed and engine rpm.

On the 1100 model, there is a toggle that allows you to move between functions. If you move that toggle up, instead of down with the engine off, it triggers a diagnostic review and will indicate a possible malfunction.

I'm not certain that this applies to the 696.
Nor am i certain that you run an exhaust valve in the header pipe.

In my case, the part and the work that is associated with replacement is
covered completely under warranty. You should be likewise protected.
