I've had very much the same going on with mine, seems to work for a few miles then stop for a few miles if it's off for more than a mile the Light comes on.
It's been doing it for a 1000miles or so, I haven't had time to look into it but nothing's changed in a thousand miles if thats any help to you.
My Plan was to clean the Sensor once the Weather changed for the worse and I put the Bike away for Winter but if you've already cleaned yours and had no change there doesn't seem to be much point in me cleaning mine!
Let's hope someone comes along soon with a cure

Same problem on a friends 2008 XB12scg at 15000 miles, fitted a new speed sensor, the Harley spares man said we sell a few of these so must be a common fault. Covered 12000 miles since, working ok. Another friends Uly did the same at about 16000 miles.

Spooky! I'm experiencing the same thing with my 1125CR. Become quite consistent recently. Speedo and consequently gear indicator doesn't register for first few miles. After the first mile or so engine warning light comes on. At virtually the same point into my journey each morning speedo and gear indicator starts working, 200 m later EML goes out.

Same procedure on way home and again speedo kicks in after a similar distance. It's almost as if the sensor takes time to warm up lOl
