Hey I've recently picked up a 2008 r1200r. I washed it and the next day went to start it but the gauges did not turn on. Bike starts and runs great but no dash.

I've rummaged through some threads and discovered that the gauge cluster is the same as the f800 series. Lots of people have issues with the capacitors dieing. I pulled my cluster apart and found some corrosion on the back of the board. Cleaned it up but still no joy. So I found a PCB repair guy in town and dropped it off with him. He figures it's now fixed after he tested the capacitors, found them faulty, then replaced them. I won't find out for sure until tomorrow night when I pick it up and re install. I'll let you know how it goes.

No joy, the little red light at the bottom of the tacho that's supposed to flash once when the keys turned on now glows dull red with the key on but no other signs of life.
