No gauge lights on 919.

Are the gauge light automatic or is there some switch?

Does anyone know where the fuse is and what's involved in bulb replacement?

06 919

Thanks.

the 919 has three (always thought it was two but it shows 3 in the wiring diagram) incandescent bulbs that light the dash... they are not auto and not on a switch, rather just on all the time. They are user replaceable you just pop the back of the guage cluster off and pop some new ones in.


Let me look at the wiring diagram to see what fuse.

Edit - it is on the main fuse for the headlights and all other lights... so if your turn signals work etc then the fuse "should be fine" but have a look... wiring diagram doesnt lead onto what fuse does what and im a lil lazy to tear through the manual haha.

Thanks! Found them, had to remove the headlight, 4 nuts holding the gauges in place and unscrew the back.

They were both blown.

It's front end weight that helps prevent wheelies. It also monitors the front tire to make sure it's rotating in the right direction

Unless you get Koso, then it's a whole new game. It actually makes the bike go faster
At least I noticed my self go faster to see how high I can get the Max Speed feature to show
