Starts but No Guage Display

A friend has K1200GT that will start, but when turning on there is no gauge initialization. The bike starts & after a few minutes the gauge & lights turn on.
He has installed anew BMW Gel battery.

Any ideas as to were to look?

Re: Starts but No Guage Display

I suggest you post on as there are many tech types there and it is mostly a K bike site. Most of the activity here is around the RT.

I change your tires $50, you buy them on the web.
