Anyone else with an engine light sna-fu on an '02?

Ok, Let me start by saying that I haven't had a chance to check the owners/service manual on this - just thought I may be able to get a quick responce from you guys. I have an '02 FXSTDI with approx 968 miles on it. I have noticed that the last 2 or 3 times that I have ridden, about 3 seconds after the bike is started the engine light comes back on. The light stays on for about 3-5 seconds then goes off, not to be seen until the bike is turned off then fired again. What's the deal? Is this a 1k service reminder? The bike is not been running any different from the previous 968 miles.

Thanks in advance guys!

my '00 road king,,,21000 miles,,,, has done this 3 times,,,nearest i can figure thru the service manual is slight backfire on the fly wheel,,,sounds like a cough ,,,on cranking,,,which triggers crank position sensor,,,the first time i paid 28 bucks to scan it ,,,they cleared the code and said dont worry about it,,,,the 3rd time i was listening close enough that i heard the cough ,,,it clears automaticly after 50 starts,,,the 2nd time i was on a long trip so i didnt bother me for long because of so many starts,,the light bugs the heck out of me too
