It started this past summer. Cruising along, cruise set and green light on. Bike slowly starts losing speed. Not like coasting, but as if you reduced throttle a bit. After losing 5 or 10 mph the cruise light turns orange (which mean on, but not set) and the bike starts losing speed rapidly as it starts coasting. Reset cruise and it would work for a while. Maybe a few days. Then happen again. Slowly got worse and more frequent.
Got to where it won't even set most of the time. And when it does, it would eventually do what I already described. Now it's at a point where it will it set very rarely, and always lose speed.
I have found the procedures for pulling up cruise codes. No code show. I've also found the procedures for testing the cruise switched (throttle, brakes, etc), which also tensions the stepper cable as the last step. That always checked well. The puzzling part for me is the loss of speed while cruise is still active and the intermittent activation. If it just shut off or always refused to activate I would at least think it was a switch.
