About a week ago I noticed that when I went to start the bike it lagged a bit and the trip meter on the display reset and it reverted over to the ODO. I thought nothing of it at the time, but it has started doing this frequently. After starting it again when it is warm it idles low at first, almost to the point of stalling, which never happened before. I was reading that this might be a battery issue, but there is not a whole lot of info.

About that same time I noticed that the bike started feeling sluggish, and I'm hearing more exhaust popping than usual. I have a PS3-USB, but I know nothing about them, and I'm thinking it is likely not causing the display issues.

Has anyone had similar issues? What do you guys think?

Sounds like a battery on its way out, especially with the trip meter resetting.

display is probably a weak battery. mine reverts back to odo reading too sometimes. i have the battery on a tender overnight, it displays whatever was last showing when i turn the bike off. still cranks the bike fine, but i'll probably get a new battery soon anyways.
