Today i was riding and noticed that my Speedometer/Cluster light is flickering and sometimes go off but the speedometer digits is still there, it's just the backlight. Anyone experienced this problem? I tought my bike stops charging but my headlights are still steady and bike start over again after shutting it off...

It could also be your regulator/rectifier. This is a common symptom of a bad R/R. Check your battery voltage with a voltage meter while the bike is running and when it is not running.

This should tell you if the R/R is working correctly. If it is not working properly, it will sometimes send 17 volts to the battery frying it.

Your battery sitting should read 12.5-12.7 volts.

Your battery while running at idle should be in the 14 volt range.

Hope it is just a loose bulb.
