ESD light when head/tail lights are removed

Hi all, just took my 2014 Gen4 to the track for the first time, second owner. I took it for a ride the first time at the track with no head/tail lights and after moving up to about 10-15 mph (sometimes earlier, sometimes later) the yellow FI light would come on, and the ESD light on the dash would come up. Sometimes I would notice, it would sound like the servo was spazzing out in the damper when I got done with my session (Or maybe it was the rectifier/regulator buzzing, not sure).

When I got home, I reconnected the lights, rode around, no problems. When I again removed the headlight fuse, and disconnected the tail light, the light would cut on again after a little bit of riding. Has anyone else experienced these issues? I've done some searching and haven't seen anything about this specific issue. My battery voltage is good, and doesn't really change much with or without the headlights on ( reads about 14.5-14.6 when the bike is running at idle while cold).
