Default List of Error Codes on Instrument Cluster?

Does anyone have a list of the various error codes on the instrument cluster, and what they mean ?

I wrecked my bike and it wont start. It is displaying VPN or VPL or something similar, i cant remember.

I will try again tomorrow, and find out exactly what the code is.

We are also going to swap the instrument cluster from my friends 2011, to see if that helps!

Thanks

The owners manual has a lot of codes listed in it, so if you have that handy...

they are on pg 24 - 26 in the owner's manual. (at least some of them)

if the bike tipped over, it is likely a !VDS code for vertical down sensor. that's the only V one i see listed.

what other lights besides the code are lit up?

If u swap gauge clusters I believe they have to be dealer programmed but not sure.. that's what I heard so don't take my word for it.

I checked the code in the damaged cluster and it is EWS, so i have disconnected the battery to see if it resets everything?

im the friend with the 2011, where is the tip over switch located. or if you can post a picture of it that would help too. i was thinking if the bike can tell your lean angle with the traction control it wouldn't need a tip over switch anymore. i don't know...
