1998 GL1500 yesterday I went to go into reverse and nothing
After checking a few things here are some symptoms, perhaps they are related:
No reverse
No reverse light
No temperature gauge
No gas gauge
No 5th gear yellow indicator light
When trying to put into cruise in 4th gear doesn't work, It does go into cruise in 5th gear
I checked the reverse fuse it is the same on the cover as the starter and the starter works fine
Any ideas?
Thanks

Need to check ALL fuses with volt meter. I have seen a lot of fuses "LOOK" good. But only letting small amount of voltage through them.
Other than that. Have seen the switch on the reverse lever go bad. Check your reverse light bulb. Can check without pulling dash out.
Being that other things not working either, I would say a fuse is bad. Not sure which one.

Sounds like either the tail/meter/position fuse or the tail/main relay. If the fuse tests good then try swapping the relay with another one and see if the symptoms change.

When I installed a 20 amp fuse to test it it works, I bought the required 15 amp and the fuses blew again. Might be an over load or a short any suggestions?
