Thumbs down random electrical fault

Hi just recently my sp1 has had a strange electrical fault at first I started losing the rev counter when going over rough roads and now this has stopped but the neutral and oil pressure indicator lights have gone really dim does anyone have any clue as to where I need to start looking ie connectors or possible pinch points on the bike cheers

Check the plug into the back of the cluster first. After ruling that out there is a tiny little rubber piece with miniature wire strands running through it that is sandwiched between the 2 boards inside the cluster nacelle. Sometimes the contact areas that both sides of that rubber piece touch get dirty and start to cause a loss of continuity with the wire stands. Take the nacelle apart to access the boards, bend the tabs straight to get the boards apart & clean the contact areas and the rubber piece with a quality contact cleaner and reassemble in the exact same way it came apart and you should be good to go.
