Went for a ride tonight and was the first time I was switching riders modes while not in neutral and when I stopped to get gas after changing from race mode to slick mode I shut bike off and when I went to turn it back on bike struggled to start a second like battery was about dead and when it fired up the idle was higher than usual and the check engine light was blinking and it wouldn't let me rev the bike anyone ever have this happen to them before I shut bike off and started it again and it ran just fine

Probably to do with the throttle. Might need a reset or need replacing. Sometimes its the connector as well. If it had an engine light on then it would have logged a fault code. Check it with a GS911.

You can change modes on the fly. The activation of mode however is when the throttle is back at rest ( idle ) or you pull in the clutch.
