rc51 gauges

so, been having a problem with my gauge since i got the bike. the yellow backlight doesnt work, thus i cant see shit at night.

all other features work (tach, speed, trip, temp, FI light, gas light, etc, etc...)

so, i sent my gauge to scott at bluegauges.com. he said he hasnt even touched anything, and everything is working as it should be.

whats my next step here?

Ask Scott which pin is the backlight and on your harness find a way to get switched power to that pin.

i think me and subsailor discussed this before and he said there was no specific wire for the backlight. i.e if my other lights were working, then so should it.

This is a rare occurrence...I hear of people changing the color but never complete outage.

i just dont understand why with how ever he tested the gauge, all lights work, but the backlight wont illuminate when hooked up to my harness.

ive been riding at night for awhile now with out being able to see my gauges (its doable, but very annoying)

not sure where to go from here.
