Hi folks.

Being new to this I've had a look at past posts and the issue I have is similiar to some comments/posts, Although for some reason not quite the same problem as I'm having I have a gsxr1000 k8.
All lights,indicators,hazards,horn,,killswitch, etc all work but the rev counter and digital speedo don't...If I disconnect the battery or the speedo unit then reconnect it, it works until the bike is switched back off,although this varies from 1hr to 1day,
i have checked all fuses and cleaned the miltiplug behind left hand fairing,The bike has been into local bike garage and they have found no faults on diagnostic machine..ANY IDEAS ??? I would be eternally grateful.

How have you checked the fuses with an ohmmeter?

"If I disconnect the battery or the speedo unit then reconnect it, it works until the bike is switched back off,although this varies from 1hr to 1day,"

That sounds like it's working OK. Where's the problem? Or are you saying that when you switch it off and later back on, the tach and speedo don't work unless you disconnect and reconnect that battery. What about the temperature display? You say that the indicators work. Does that include the gear indicator? I think that you need to be more specific about exactly what is happening.

With the bike turned completely off, disconnect the battery (pos or neg terminal is enough). Wait a minute and reconnect, watching the cluster as you do. Does anything happen?

Thanks for replying.

Sorry I didn't explain it that great, when I go out to take out the bike I have no speedo/rev counter and when I disconnect the battery or the speedo and reconnect it all works fine for the limited time I mentioned, temp gauge gear shift the full works.....Also having watched the speedo/ rev counter when I'm connecting the battery the rev counter does the sweep round and back again. oh and all fuses are fine.
