So today i installed an HID kit into the low beam and was tryin to fix the license plate light - now my guage cluster doesnt light up or do the start up sequence and the tail light is out (brake light still works).

I dont think it was the HID install but the license plate light is now disconnected - when i tried to reconnect the license plate light both cluster and tail light are still dead.

any ideas? blown fuse or bad connection in the wiring harness by the intake runner?

ps. where are the fuses these circuits are related to??

does the whole gauge cluster not work? make sure the two connectors under the left air damn are tightly connected.

Same issue

I am having this same problem....happened to me when my license plate got yanked off from hitting my tire a few days ago. It ripped out the wire that I had attached to the license plate and now my gauge cluster is off...completely. Meaning I don't know how fast I'm going or my fuel level.....if you fixed your issue how did you do it? Thx for all your help guys!

thx for fast reply

Cluster is out first thing to check is the fuse
Moeman....just the person I wanted to hear from!!!....it's an honor...lol....okay so this is the situation....everything happened like I stated above and I took the bike to a "questionable" shop...but they said they could fix it in a couple of hours. By questionable I mean I hear the shop is actually a chop shop at night!...I put my trust in them and then a couple hours later they called and said it was finished. When I went to the shop they took extremely long to get the bike back to me. When I asked them what the hold up was they said that they got the gauge working but when they were trying to bring it out to me, it blew a fuse which in turn blew the main fuse for the bike. Apparently they said I need a new relay...they showed me it and it looked melted on the bottom. I then took it to a genuine honda shop in C-bus and they looked at all the fuses and told me that one was indeed blown. He said that they had put a 20 fuse into a 10 fuse slot and that is the likely reason why they blew the main fuse. I am wondering what i need to do as I am in Dayton and don't really want to drive back up to Columbus (1.5 hours) to go back to that honda place. There are closer honda places here but unfortunately I would have to wait a week before I get my bike back....help me out brother...thanks for all your help thus far.

Always my pleasure to help fellow RR family members the License plate light and the Cluster
are controlled by the same fuse the electrical short that took place at the license plate light is what caused the fuse to blow which in turn stopped the cluster from working right

So how to fix the problem either fix the electrical wiring connection of the license plate
light or simply stop using that light all together then change the blown fuse from there
your cluster should start to function again

Got any questions feel free to pm me

more problems

ok....now after i have replaced the fuse when I turn on the bike the gauge cluster works. However when I tried to start the bike, the bike turns off all together. Not sure what the problem is. We taped up the exposed wires on the back of the bike and figured if we turned the bike on then we should have no more problems. What do you guys think? I'm in a worse position now because I can't turn the damn thing on!
