F650GS Intrument Panel not working

Help, replaced new battery and now the speedo tach and clock are not working. Checked fuses and they are ok. Checked battery connections also OK . Bike starts all warning lights come on when starting. Cooling fan still works when engine temp is high, fuel warning light does not come on when low on fuel..... To back track from instrument panel ....... Any suggestions.

Thanks

Did find the problem, some oxidization to the wiring and little rust. Power now restored no need to use GPS unit as a speedometer.....

Repair

Hello Romi,

Say I am not sure which wires they were as I ended up taking the bike to a dealer and that was what they had told me the problem was as they did the repair. Sorry for the late reply as it has been along time checking in on the log. Have you gotten the problem fixed? Happy riding.. The stuck in the winter Canadian..... 4 more months till riding starts.
