    Hi I'm new here and need some help. I have a 2016 limited and today when I shut it down the radio stayed on. Went through a few restarts the finally it shut off. Anyone ever hear of this happening or have any suggestions? Thanks

    That's one I haven't heard of. I'd get it back to H-D, there may be a software update to handle that.

    when you shut it down did you turn off the center console
    switch and the radio stayed on?

    That will happen, you have to turn off the power on the bars
    to turn off the electronics, the center switch on the bike is
    nothing more than a fork lock now, it controls none of the
    power options.

    Previous bikes we had to turn on the main power at the center
    console switch (center faring) and everything would power up
    or down, then press start.

    Now your key fob tells the bike it's ok to start and you have to
    turn the center switch to unlock the fairing, then press the button
    on the bars by the throttle to turn on and off power...
