electrical issue with my 1981 CM400

my headlamp works, the turn signals work (when activated), the brake light works (when brake applied). what DOESN'T work:
speedometer/tachometer illumination, turn signals are not 'always on' (when not activated), the back light.
i checked fuses and obvious connections--seems to be ok.
here's the kicker....the back light DOES work--when i turn the key to PARK!
what am i missing? thanks!

Re: electrical issue with my 1981 CM400

Have you checked the voltage on the battery and all wiring?

Anyone can drive a fast bike, few can drive a bike fast!
