Intermittent things are but a guess. So replace reverse relay number one. That is the one that controls and links all the safety switches such as clutch, side stand , and the reverse switch . Replace that, in case it is going defective.
Under the right side cover above and back a bit from the brake master is a rubber covered connector. Some call it a ground, it is not, that is the reverse switch. Just by hand check to make sure the wire is tight. No do not make it tighter, easy to snap off the stud.
Then if it still acts up, on to the next thing.
The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.
