hey guys, need your help!
My speedometer stopped working along with every other indicator on my dash except the headlight (blue) light and turn signal (yellow) indicator. I've got no tach, no oil light, no speedo, no neutral, no gas gauge, etc. I thought maybe I just had a loose connection but I have checked and re-checked every connection to make sure it's solid. I've also swapped fuses and that did not fix my issue either. I've also noticed that the front right turn signal does not flash but the left turn signal does. So yea, I'm completely stumped!
I'm not sure if this is related since I have aftermarket rear brake light/running light but the running light has stopped working as well. I've get the brake light to come on whenever I hit the lever or pedal but no running light.
I don't have access to a multimeter so I wanted to check here and see if anyone has ever experienced this same issue and could provide some insight. Is this a possible relay issue or do I have a bigger electrical gremlin on my hands?

Thanks!!!

If the fuse was blown, you'd have no gauge operation or illumination, nor running lights.
On the surface, it sound like a wiring gremlin.

damn! Think you're right since I forgot to mention that my headlights are working...high and low beam.

Have you had the bike apart recently?? (Wire pinched) The tank area under the seat is a popular spot for a pinched wire.

Sounds like that anything that goes from the ECU to the display is down, so the link between the two is down. The ones working must be direct electric functions.
I haven't checked but in the digital logic you only need 2 wires to transfer data, but it may appear as a multi connection plug. Check the connections.
The running light problem may be as simple as a bulb and unrelated I think. Although you have two of them which unless you had not noticed before I doubt they both went out at the same time. Are they LEDs or stock?
When you switch on and the bike primes you have nothing what so ever on the LCD display, right? How about illumination of the dash, if it is bright you may not have noticed.
