  1. Just put a new battrey in a R1 i just brought and it started great took it for a quick ride and noticed the digitial speedo had gone blank just got home in time b4 it stopped it wont charge any ideas help im not that good with bikes yet.. :? :?

  2. yep, you have missed some wiring somewhere, whilst installing the new battery. I would suggest the generator/alternator is not functioning or not connected.

  4. check the fuses first.
