WTB (Borrow): CBR600RR Gauge Cluster...or some help - March 22, 2010, 09:22 AM

I finally had a weekend free to work on the bike and I was successfull in getting fuel and spark working together and I will be firing the bike tonight after I put oil back in it. One thing I was not able to do is figure out why my gauge cluster doesn't work.

This is what I have thought of:
Option 1: It sucks to be me. I bought it used and got scammed on one that doesn't work (this option makes me sad)
Option 2: It's not getting a signal. It is getting power because it will do the tach needle sweep when power is applied and the clock is on. But I get no warning lights, indicator lights, speedo doesn't come on, fuel gauge doesn't come on.
Option 3: Bad fuses. After inspecting the bike and looking through the FSM The only fuse is the main fuse under the seat by the battery. And since the bike cranks strong it can't be the culprit...right?
Option 4: Bad harness. This may be an issue since the bike is an '03 the harness and cluster are from an '05. After some research, I found that as long as you use a harness and cluster from the same year you'll be fine.

I understand that the technical solution to this problem is to take a multi-meter and go through all the pin-outs on the harness to the cluster and verify the proper voltage on each pin but I was hoping that someone could shed some light on a similar issue they've had in the past or offer up any advice in getting this problem fixed.

Also, if someone has a cluster I could use for 20 mins to plug in and see if it's my cluster that's bad or my harness that's bad. I will compensate you for your trouble.

Wrong. There is a fuse box with six fuses and a clutch diode.
20A Headlight
10A Turn signal/engine stop/horn
10A Neutral/oil/tempmeter/tachometer/speedometer/position meter/tail light
10A Starter/bank angle sensor
20A Fan motor
10A Clock

The fuse box should be on the left side of the motor somewhere, near the regulator/rectifier.
