Electrical Problem- Speedo and Rev counter working intermittently

Hi Guys,

I have a FZ6 2007 naked version and have encountered a new problem. The speedometer and recounter will stop working randomly either during the ride or will not turn on at the start but will start working during the ride.
All of the turn signs lights on the dash work, the bike runs fine.
I've inspected the connection at the rear of the speedo and they are clean and free of rust etc... I've removed the tank and inspected/cleaned the connections under there. The looms also seem in fine working order.

Could this be a battery issue? I just can't think why it works sometimes and then randomly turns off and on?

Whilst inspecting the looms in moved them around with the power on and I could not replicate the fault.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Got an 09...and the only problem I'm having is keeping the clock set. It worries me because it may lead to other issues like yours...!! Even though my bikes an 09, it only had 48 miles on it when I bought it from the dealer. Makes me wonder if there's not a build problem with the digital dash. Sorry I can't help...just wanted you to know you're not alone with the digital dash problem. ..
