help with warning light meanings

Background - riding my 2006 Street Bob home yesterday and 2 blocks from home I hear an odd sound - seemed to come from front of engine. Seemed to lose power for a second - then returned to normal. Happened a couple more times - then normal.

Started this morning - and got 1 block from home - everything sounded and felt normal - but noticed
1) the RED Battery Light had come on and stayed on
2) the YELLOW Engine Light came on and stayed on

Returned home - drove truck to work. Don't have owners manual with me.

What do those lights "really mean" and what should my next step be?

Thanks - Lance

Pull the codes from your speedometer. Not sure how it works on your bike..but I hold in the button on the odometer while turning the ignition to on. Then you scroll through the codes. You can probably get a list of the codes off the internet.

suggest you fix the battery/charger problem first;might be the cause of the engin light also.

+1 - I would check the cable connections at the battery first, then check the ground connections at the frame behind the battery box. Remove the battey box to get to these easily.
