Hi,
Today I was riding my bike until my tachometer went blank.
Bike: 600RR 2005.

Tachometer is blank (only clock showing time is visible), like I would not turn the key but the engine is running ok.

Although engine is running, the RPM meter is frozen at 0rpm, speedometer is blank, odometer is blank, temperature and fuel level indicator are also blank, like they were never connected to motorcycle. The only thing I see is time clock!

Turn light indicators on the tachometer are flashing ok.
High beam light indicator is ok.
Neutral-gear indicator is dead.

Any suggestions what is wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help.
Sebek

Check the fuse ( fuse box behind left side middle fairing )
Check the cluster's cable make sure its a tight connection

Thanks Moeman for instant advice!

At time of writing first post I checked:
- multi-connetor (under upper cowl), was fine
- front sub-harness 12P (gray) connector (under the air duct), was fine
- front sub-harness 12P (blue) connector (under the air duct), was fine

Next I will check ECM connector and sub-fuses in the box you wrote.
As far as I know, there are 6 fuses, 4 x 10A and 2 x 20A. I assume that those 4 fuses are for fuel/ignition system, but what function is for those 2 x 20A?

Maybe one is for light system (which works fine) and another is for tacho?

Same thing happened to a bunch of us on here also.. let us know if you find the fix.. I havent had time to work on my bike due to my busy work schedule.. so I'll check back to this thread here and there..

Good luck also!

Good news! The problem is fixed :)

Tacho could not have beed disconnected at multi-connector (the one right under tacho, under front cowl) because turn light indicators, high beam light indicator and clock were working properly.

As I went through wiring diagram in service manual I realised it must be C fuse (10A) located in the fuse box, under left middle cowl. This fuse was responsible for:
- position light (low beam and high beam light were ok)
- tail light
- neutral indicator
- oil temp
- tachometer (analog rpm)
- speedometer, odometer etc (everything LCD except clock)

Anyway, replacing fuse C fixed the problem :)

No, it happened to me for the first time.

I hope it was just an "accident at work", that I won't happen again. Otherwise, careful checking of electric wiring will be mandatory :/

Hope you won't need to do that too.

Hey so i'm having the same problem right now and I have fixed it twice now. Once replacing the fuse with another 10A and it lasted like 5 minutes and the second with a 15A and it lasted about 35 minutes. I checked all the wiring the best I could and I didn't find any frayed wires from the cluster all the way back to the tail light. I also checked the connectors to the cluster and it was fine too. I'm out of ideas so any suggestions?
