Hey, a buddy of mine is having trouble with his 99 F4. He was riding and noticed that the neutral light wasn't coming on, then he noticed that the directional blinkers weren't working (in the front anyway, not sure about the rear). He started it up yesterday and the whole dash seems to be dead, gauges and all.

Has anyone else encountered this? Could such a thing be caused by a fuse or something else that could be burnt out? Where would we look for a possible short? Any help would be appreciated! Perhaps suggest a good repair shop in the Alexandria area.

An idea about looking for a short, check your connections. See if two different connections are touching together. Also, check to seeif any frays in the wiring. Wires could be touching the frame or motor somewhere. Just a couple of ideas.

Thanks for the advice. Turns out it was just a fuse (doh). Now we're trying to find the cause. Gotta love following wires around.
