gauge lights

Post by elementfe »



The last electrical oddity on my 83 is that I can't work out how to get the instrument lights on for night riding....which I rarely do but for safety it would be good to have them working.
Anyone have suggestions for where to begin?
Fuses are good, wiring seems to be all there.

after 37 years, there's a decent chance that they are simply all burned out.

They don't turn on and off - they come on whenever the ignition is turned on. If they're not on, then the bulbs are burned out.
