I took my 2005 R1200GS out for a nice 1.5 hour ride in the country this afternoon. Stopped for gas (probably irrelevant) As soon as I took off for the last 15 miles home, I noticed the gear indicator in the instrument cluster was blank. Then it went on and off several times, sometimes indicating the correct gear. sometimes not. That continued until I got home. It was mostly just blank during that time. Put the bike in neutral - no neutral indicator light, and putting the sidestand down killed the bike. I figure there's either a sending unit problem, or a problem in the instrument cluster. Restarting it didn't help. Any thoughts from the gurus? I hope it's nothing too expensive. I bought the bike new just a couple weeks shy of 5 years ago, and love it, but it's been such a piece of crap quality wise if this is a big $$$ problem it's likely history. I'll miss it. All the earlier problems were covered under warranty, but now it's way out at 5 years and 41K miles. Thanks.
