Fuel and temp get volts from the relay.If your marker lamps are OK,the relay is good.
Not sure what you mean by "backup".
Common grounding points are a connector block on each side of the bike..just about near your kneecap (under the covers) and often hidden by tape to the main harness.A bunch of green wires with one of them connected to a ground lug.

It's very possible.I'd have to look at the schematic ground connection designation points to verify.Concentrate on one problem at a time.Locate the color coded wires that feed power and check the ground connections first for the gauges.

Your number 3 relay has likely failed. In relay box next to fuse box, swap it with another.
This is what I do
Local and need repair help with your 1500, Valkyrie or ST please PM
