Hi guys. Having a problem with my xevo400.  When I turn the bike off about 1 hour later the left indicator is coming on its not flashing. It just stay on like a light and it's draining the battery. I have to jump it to get it going. Has anyone know what might be causing this and what can I do to make sure it doesn't happen again

Do you have an alarm fitted? Could be a fault on this if it uses the indicators to flash 'on' 'off' signals.

Weird that it doesn't happen immediately, but waits for an hour.
The Xevo doesn't use the X9's digidash to control the indicators but I think it's a more conventional indicator relay so could it be a dud relay or one that has got water inside?
Try pulling the fuse that supplies the indicators and see if that stops the problem occurring. If so then at least you know the fault is limited to the indicator circuit. If it still does it, then the problem seems like a cross feed from another circuit.
The delay in it occurring is the odd thing which makes me think it's likely to be a settling of moisture into a large enough 'puddle' somewhere then causing a short circuit. A strip down and clean/WD40 of all relay internals seems a good place to start.

hi Dave. i have another issue with my xevo. Its takes a few mins to start in the morning and when i get it going when it drop below 2000 rpm the bike cuts out. It starts back up again no problem but its very annoying. Have you any idea what the issue is and would it be linked to the other issue i was having with the indicator staying on . Id be grateful for any help you can give me on this matter.

I don't think it's related, unless there is a short in the wiring somewhere.
I suggest a complete strip down and examine the looms for sign of damage and also check every connector for damp.
