Try to remember what you did to the bike; start with the point in time when normal and end with the light up.

Connectivity issue with the dash. Other than that, the dash may have had a failure.

The dash uses a serial connection to the ECU to get all the information. When the serial stream (CANbus) is not there, then you see the flashing lights.

If loose whatever, has to be something you did, I hope, so go back and look at every electrical whatever that you touched. If everything tight have to let dealer tech sort out and if over his head they have a line with Kawa tech guys. If under warranty all good. If not, dealer will let you know up front costs to sort. I know the g5 dash is different from the g4 and the g4 is solid. You should do a g5 dash failure check on web.

Doesn't matter if you've done anything yourself to it. Has it sat outside for extended periods of time in ti's life? A rodent could've chewed the cord. It could be corroded wire from sitting in rain water too long. Could be debris tucked up in the connector shorting out the connection. Everything works fine until it doesn't work any longer. You need to get in there and check the connections and wire and to an electrical point-to-point check on it all.
