Have not experienced this with my cruise control.  I would not be too concerned about it unless it happens again.

There is nothing like spending a day riding with friends in the grip of a shared obsession.

I have occasionally had the same thing happen.  Turning the ignition switch off and on again resets it.  I have no idea what the problem was.

This is the answer to most modern electronic failures. 👍

Absolutely, when in doubt, power cycle the device.

had to do this when the power windows in my jeep stopped working. shutting it off and starting it back up made them work fine again. like a glitch in the matrix.

Happens to me as well fairly often. Sometimes the power cycle trick works, sometimes not. My research on an FZ10 forum,

where the same problem exists, some people have said that it's the switch assembly in the front brake.

I have had it happen to me several times as well.  It always seems to happen right when I start a long stretch and do not want to have to take the time to pull off and cycle through the power.  For something that was invented in 1948, you'd think they'd have it figured out by now.  Especially Yamaha.  I'm still under warranty so I'll mention it the next time I'm in for service and post an update if I learn anything new.

I just went through this my GT. Turned out the front brake light switch would stick on and cruise won't work and light flashes. Turn off bike restart and its fine tell the switch sticks again.

To trouble shoot this i put a wire tie around the switch to hold the plunger in for two weeks and it never acted up, then slid the wire tie down so the switch would work and it started doing it again. Ordered a new switch from Partzilla $66.00 and change and shipping.

True your brake light won't come on when using the front brake but still have foot brake to light it up.

I chased this problem for six weeks. Seems that when the module sees brake light on and the bike is not slowing it disables the cruise untell the bike is turned off and restarted.

Hope that helps.

Also you can try key on engine off working the front brake lever and watch the brake light if it stays on at all after releasing the lever its bad.

Rob out.
