Fuel and Volt gauges stopped working...

Fuel and volt gauges stopped working randomly today. Lights to the gauges also not lighting up to the fuel and volt gauges. I checked fuses, connections to gauges, handlebar etc. Bike starts runs fine, radio works, speedo tach work, no check engine light. Turn signals and joysticks work. Im at a loss at this point...what say you Guru's??

Kind of odd, the lights for the gauges and the sensors are on different connectors for the gauges. Only thing they seem to have in common is being located towards the top of the fairing. I can't imagine you hit a few bumps really hard and jarred them loose? Have you ever had the fairing off? If not, it seems you may need to take a look, I can't think of another way to trouble shoot without removing the fairing. Maybe someone else will chime in who knows something I don't.

Rock, it's easy to miss a blown fuse just by checking by eye.
I would check all the fuses with a test light just to make sure they are all good.
After that, I would pull the main fuse for 30 sec. to a minute then replace it to see if that resets everything.
If that doesn't work I would make sure that you have power and ground to the gauges and lights that aren't working.
Hope this helps.

Well I couldn't resist. Had the gf drive me to the parts store and got a fuse tester and fuses. Grabbed a k&n oil filter while I was there. 5k is due. Anyway I tested all fuses. All tested good. Grounds and connections checked again. All solid connections.
