Electrical problem with gauge cluster?
I have been trying to tackle this gremlin for a few days now. One day, when starting my RC, the gauge cluster wouldn't come on. I was only riding some twisties in the country, so I rode it anyway. I noticed, when grabbing the front brake lever, the gauges illuminated! When released, off they go. I figured it was a short in the micro-switch mounted on the master cylinder. Replacing this did not fix the issue.
I have since then, discovered that the switch is getting constant power without being depressed, and I believe that it should only get power when squeezed.
