Default 93 CBR 600 Gauge Cluster stopped working...

Sorry if this is a re-post, I searched but didn't find much.

First thing that went out was the headlight. Hard wired that to get by.
Less than 2 weeks after the speedo stopped responding/recording.
1 week after speedo went out blinkers stopped working/responding.

Took the headlight/blinker switch apart and checked all the connections. Everything looks fine and operates smoaothly.
Followed the entire loom from the switch to the rack where it all plugs in. Examined all the plugs closely and nothing is looking even remotely corroded.
Looked at the speedo cable as well and it was tight as it could be and still looking fine.

The only thing in the cluster that still works is the light for Neutral and kick stand and the RPM gauge. All the backlights still come on.

Thinking it's a bad ground somewhere.

If pics will help with anything let me know. Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions!!

The speedo issue is either the cable, the drive in the front wheel hub, or the speedo itself. It is all mechanical. Try this link in the forum.

The other issues sound like the switch on the clutch side bar is the culprit as both the headlight and blinkers go through it. Probably moisture and/or corrosion in the switches.

As stated above, I've taken the switch apart completely.Its pretty easy to see all the connections and verify there is no corrosion or build up of any type. Thanks for the link to the speedo cable issue!

Here's a 91 wiring diagram. I think most of the basic harness is the same. notice the blinker switch is tied to the horn switch with the black/brown wire. Does your horn work?

The blinkers, low beam, side stand switch, your gauge lights, ground, and the voltage regulator are all tied to the solid green wire.

I think the problem is from the area of the harness that supplies the blinkers and the headlamp. Other functions are unaffected as of now.

So, check the harness for chafing between the bar switch and the headlight. Use a voltmeter to see if power is present at the switches and your original headlight connection. Good luck

Thanks a ton for the info! I'll be checking your suggestion as soon as I'm back to my baby. I'll be sure to report back if I track down the culprit. Thanks again for your time!
