I would stay away from it, seems fishy. The tires have been changed and the foot peg rubber looks a little worn for only 700 miles. Me thinks the odometer has been swapped.

Larry is a good man. If you see the headset icon on the screen and get no sound from either front or back, the headset amp is blown in the audio unit. Larry will get you straightened out. :grin2:

One quick question. Do you have the high beams on? If so, turn them off and see if the bike shuts down with the key. If it does, you have a ground issue in the fairing harness behind the gauge...
