Electrical Problem:Gauge and lights not working

Rode to school one morning with no problems but when i turned it on to go home i noticed the gauge wasn't working, the only part that worked was the high beam light and the clock. I checked out all my lights, headlights working fine but all the turn signals were out. The brake light worked at first but then stopped after a few minutes. The bike started and rode fine it was just the lights out. Could this be loose wiring or a blown fuse? I have no idea so i could definitely use some help if you guys have any ideas. Thanks

Check your fuses and then search for the wire fault that caused the fuse to blow.

Yes. A short in that circuit will cause the fuse to blow, as that is what they are for.

Thanks for the info. I narrowed it down to the front right turn signal. Unplugged it and everything else worked fine. Now just need to figure out where the problem is in the connection.

I wouldn't even bother, just replace it if you have narrowed it down to the turn signal.

Figure out what the problem is with the turn signal. Chances are it's an issue in the wiring that can be easily fixed.

Do you know where to find your fuses?

What year is your bike?
