My brother had a very similar problem with his 1999 CBR 600 F4. It turned out to be the starter button/switch (on the right clip-on). The bike would crank and run, but he had the same problems with the gauge cluster lights and the headlight. Just a thought.

2005 GIXXER 1K and 2008 ZX 10R.

Change the relay out- maybe it's sticking or broken inside.

It could be the starter relay switch. But on my CBR, the relay switch won't work if the clutch lever isn't pulled in (or the lever switch is bad), or if the transmission isn't in neutral (or the neutral switch is bad), or the sidestand is retracted (or the sidestand switch is bad). Plus, yours may have a tip over switch. And even if all those safety things are done, and all the safety switches are good, the wiring or connections may be bad. Electrical problems are a b!tch.

That sounds like a problem in the dash. Or the computer. But before you do anything drastic and/or stupid check your speedo/tach sensors and the wires/cables leading to the computer and dash.

My tach reads off the spark unit, but my speedo is a cable off the front sprocket. Even if yours is digital, it reads off a different sensor than the tach. So it sounds like a connector is bad. I would follow the wires off the tach and speedo to see where they connect to the main harness. I would take that connection apart and spray it with contact cleaner and put it back together.
