Just wondered why you replaced the battery last month; a failing / failed reg/rec can is capable of taking out a battery.

Just out of interest, have you tried checking voltages at 4/5000rpm?

Hi,adie...the reason i changed the battery was that the bike hadnt been used for years before i had it!!.and had been kept behind a sofa in a flat!!....the battery had not been removed either?...when i bought it i put it on a optimate and it seemed to pick it up!! but as soon as winter came it was foooked!....it also was its original battery, this being confirmed by its mileage and the one owner i got it off!!...it had only done 5100miles at that time!....i have checked the voltage @ 5000rpm and ime getting...14.7volts...and when loaded up ime getting 14.2volts..........

I don't know if this has got something to do with the illuminations and the big beardy man coming etc by my poorly Fazer is doing this since Friday. Lights come and go, rev counter drops to 0 and back etc - it's as if someone is turning off and on the ignition. Based on this thread, I will check the wires, fuses etc (when/if I get a dry day that is bright enough to see what I am looking at) and will report back.

Oh, sorry about digging out an ancient thread.

Turned out be nothing more than a lose contact at the battery terminal. Phew.  While at it, also figured out contact cleaner is not the same as lubricant. I had tried cleaning left hand controls with contact cleaner couple of weeks ago and the indicator switch was getting harder and harder to operate and finally it completely stopped, and I had to resort to the good old ways of signaling by waving my hand (when possible). Opened it up and sprayed some GT85 and now it's all working again. Ta!

I had a similar problem; as soon as I indicated or went to full beam the clocks went off...

Found out it was corrosion on the main multi-pin connector on the LHS of fairing.  Take it apart and get a fine file / emery cloth and clean up all the connectors.

Hopefully that should sort the problem, it did for me!
