If when you get stuck with the bar try what the guy does in the video. He turns the bike off , turns the key on and continually holds the front brake while he pushes the starter button, starts the bike and manipulates the transmission buttons. See page 99 of the owners manual on what to do when you get the “-“ blinking indicator. Possibly it is some type of safety feature where the computer can see through the ABS system that the brake is on and will allow the bike to shift without fear of it running out from under you. Good luck!!!
