I have had this problem for a while, I am sure it is not an actual proper temp because both gages max out at the same time and will go back to normal after I come to a stop. It's an intermittent problem. I have looked at the wiring digram and am looking at a resistor, but I do not know where it is located.:(

checks your charging voltage, it can be too high. I just fixed that problem.

Faulty 7v regulator. Located behind the front fairing weight.

I believe Bagmaster nailed this one.......

I had the same similar problem on my GL1000 and a new 7-volt reducer corrected the problem.

If you do a search here on the forum you'll find a schematic and parts list for making your own 7V regulator. They are also usually available cheaply on eBay.

Oh yeah, will it hurt my bike to drive it like it is until I can get to it?

The fairing weight is attached to the forks below the instruments. Behind it are all the wiring connectors for the front of the bike.

You going with us tomorrow?:action:

It can. When the voltage regulator fails, it often fails open, sending 12 volts to gauges that are designed to accept a maximum of 7 volts (which is why they peg all the way to the right). Running like this long enough can cook the coils in the gauges.
