    After a ride off-road the check engine light came on
    What the ???
    Once at home I used a generic OBD scanner and I was able to read the DTC and Freeze frame

    During the ride I had an instance going downhill over loose dirt, rocks, and a few tree roots where the rear tire was sliding, the clutch was in, I realized it was a struggle to be using the rear brake and decided to release the clutch to use engine braking, the engine died and I had to pull in the clutch and restart the engine.
    That is the only time I remember killing the engine, but the freeze frame says the speed was 48km/h, hmm, I'm not that intrepid to go over the situation I described above at 48kmh and I do not recall killing the engine on any other occasion but seems the ECU detected otherwise.
    One more thing I did was to use a higher gear on uphills trying to reduce the twitchy throttle and on/off feeling/chain slapping from the tyre loosing / gaining traction
    During the offroad ride, the check-engine was lit and t stayed on until I reset the errors.
    The engine felt fine, and I was more preoccupied with not falling than the little yellow light
    I have not ridden the bike since resetting the error, hopefully, it will stay off.

    I'll keep an eye on this
    I was happy my generic scanner was able to read/reset the error and saved me from a trip to the dealer.
    I'll likely get a dealertool sometime in the future

    No question or request for help, just my observations.
    Thanks for reading
