    Can I reset the service indicator (wrench) on my 2014 California using the service code or does this require PADS or some other tool? I tried navigating with the mode switch but I think I'll probably screw it up and end up at the dealer.

    I, also, just now reset mine.
    This site is a big help.
    My nearest dealer is about 250 miles away.

    I've got the wrench after hitting 10,000 km. The only thing on the maintenance schedule that I'm not sure on is the lube of the clutch switch behind the left hand grip.

    My switch is only a few thousand km or less old (was a replacement) but anyone know what the lube of choice would be for that?

    I'm sure a dab of dielectric grease would be sufficient. Now that you mention it, I am going to grease up mine now.

    I wonder about the grease though as that switch is in the direct path of airflow and I can see grit and dirt getting trapped by the grease.

    I'm wondering if maybe a quick shot of silicone spray might not be better as it's not thick like grease??

    I had mine replaced under warranty when I had the "hanging throttle". I am certain heat is not a problem but poor QC and friction very well may have been. The mechanic showed me the flawed switch and it was flopping back and forth. Luckily it is very easy to replace should it happen again.

    ^ Yep, I noticed the same thing when I replaced mine … it is a fragile part for sure.
