I have a 2006 dl-650,
my dashboard stopped functioning while driving, the backlight, headlights, i will be more specific:
(emergency ignition switch (red) on, bikestand + neutral)

key in OFF position: dashboard speedo + rev counter rev up and down, but no backlight

key in ON position: dashboard speedo + rev counter stop functioning, still no backlight, neutral light comes on, fuel pump starts, headlights are off but all four indicators glow

key in ON position + starter with released clutch - all seems OK (dashboard lits up, speedo and rev counter rev up and down, headlights on, indicators stop glowing and function normally)
I have a video on youtube, but cannot submit links to my post yet.

Ignition and fuel injection works in ON position - i can still drive without speedo and rev counter, headlights off and indicators glowing.

Maybe the contacts in key ignition switch are not touching? And when I press the starter, it powers the dashboard from ignition circuit?

Thank you for your ideas.

The wires to the ignition switch may have come loose with ends touching where they shouldn't. That is about the only explanation I have for some stuff being on when the ignition switch is off. Ignition switch faulty? How to repair it!
