my gauges move around in the dash panel

it's like they "float" in that dash panel.... on a shock-rubber mount

is this normal?

Yep. Mine did that — I believe it's to absorb vibration.

Exclamation

My 06 ESA button on the left grip moves around a bit (vibrates) in its housing. It's like it's missing a spring that it may sit in. Conversely, the computer button on the right grip is rock solid.
Any one else have this with their bike?

Best wishes all.

the ESA button sits much DEEPER in the housing than the BC button
it doesn't feel more solid..... but it protrudes very little from the housing compared to the BC button

Yes, they are rubber mounted. They are suppose to move. In fact, the LT's move too. Just not as much as the GT's.

My ESA button protrudes about half of what the BC does. I think this is normal. However, I did have my left side control replaced because the cruise would cancel if you pressed any other control while cruise was activated. I thought it was a little strange how much the ESA button jiggled around with that first controller. I wouldn't be concerned too much though, as long as all the buttons work like they should.

Not sure if my terminology was specific enough.
I have lateral movement of the ESA button, which causes vibration when riding. It looks cheep, when as mentioned, the computer button sits firmly.
