Video: Dash resets when cold weather starting

This is a problem I've not been able to fix on my old 696 and current 1100 Evo. I always get error code 0008 r.SW, the trip and time reset, and I haven't been able to find the error code's description online. I replaced batteries in both bikes with no result.

Attempts on the 1100:
Replaced battery to lithium
Upgraded battery, starter and solenoid cables to 4 gauge
Cleaned all cable connections
Replaced starter when the old one burned out
Stator replaced when old one went out
Cycling the key several times before starting
Waiting until the headlight turns off

It happens unpredictably and infrequently when the weather is warm, but in cold weather it happens very frequently and sometimes takes numerous attempts and minutes to start the bike.

Another very rare symptom, which I don't know if it's related, is a couple of times the bike has been slow to crank after a break from riding, like it has a dying battery, but it's clearly got good voltage. This symptom is extremely rare in occurrence.

Any ideas? I wonder if the solenoid is shorting causing the computer to reset to protect itself. But why mostly when the weather is cold?

And when the weather is really cold:

The code on the dash although not known to the general public is in fact a good indication as to the problem. (code - P0008 Engine Position System Performance)
I am relatively sure as to the problem but narrowing it down to the actual cause would require you to do some simple diagnostic tests.
The sound of the engine upon cranking tells a whole story.
To help any further we will need to go private. PM me for further info.
