06 CBR 600RR Instrument Gauge not working

I have an 06 BR 600RR. Battery had gone dead so I replaced. Now with new battery, the instrument cluster doesn't display fuel, temp, mph, and tach needle doesn't move.

I still have time displaying, backlight on display, neutral indicator light works, blinker indicators work, high beam works.

I checked all fuses on left side behind the fairing. I also check the fuses under the seat. All were ok. Unplugged the the connector from the instrument cluster and all looks good there.

I'm not sure what else to check and what could've gone wrong.

What are my next steps? Do I need to buy a new one?

hey there

having same problem with my 05.

Battery died from standing in warehouse for 6 months.

Replaced the battery. but the only thing that doesnt work or it does work its just so feint that you cant read it is the odometer and tripmeter. my digital speedo and fuel guage and clock all works? Very confusing

Bike going in on thursday to have it looked at so will let you know what happens with mine.

The Honda shop wants me to buy a new Gauge meter for $691.... No thanks and I am having problems believe it's the unit itself.

I'm more concerned it's a wire as I know the unit is getting power, the LCD display works for the clock to show. But it's not getting the right signals for the fuel, tach, MPG, temp....

Would like to hear what you find out on your issue.

I plan on plugging my gauge cluster in another like bike to see if it works here in the next week or 2.

That just looks like a bad display rather than a bad wire. Perhaps if you narrow it down to a fault within the unit itself perhaps you can just buy one off eBay or even send it in to those people that change the instrument cluster LEDs, they may be able to fix it.

Anything can be repaired, sometimes it may be cost prohibitive and too time consuming. Contact tripage, I believe they do gauge LED replacements, they may know a bit more on what can be done in regards to the LCD parts.

Take a look at this video:


He is removing the LCD in the video. A specialised electronics shop could do this. I would not suggest you try this yourself unless you have experience and the correct tools.


Although I'm inclined to agree with the tech guy, it's better to replace, maybe in the meanwhile you can try and repair it yourself or get it repaired elsewhere and then sell it off.
