new guy

Hi all, just wanted to say hi and help at the same time.

I have a UK 1999 Blade, it has been parked up and covered for the last 2 months. I charged the battery and started it today but the clocks seems to be having an issue:
They work fine, all the lights and reading are coming up but then some of the lights are going off and coming back on. I've checked the connection which seems fine and the bike is driving perfect and all other electrics (lights, indicators, horn) are workig fine also.
I'm just wondering maybe is it a trouble code, below is a link to the video of what exactly its doing

Thanks in advance,

Re: new guy

They don't have fault codes on them clocks, like you have already done, clean all clock connections with suitable spray, also the light switch control unit, and connection block. could just be some moisture got in electrics.

Could just be clocks are malfunctioning. Also have you checked your charging system, as sometimes when rectifiers start to fail, they can give odd electrical problems. When bike is running with all lights on you want about 13.5-14.5 volts at battery at about 4k revs.
