Yes, the guages are "POM Driven." That means that the phase of the Moon will affect their operation. Last night was a full Moon.

Try again tomorrow, once the Moon is in a different phase. I'm sure it will be fine.

Dead battery.....or almost dead.
Also could be loose or corroded battery cables......or a bad ignition switch.

Charge it up if you can and ride it to a shop for a battery and charging system test.

Good M50 forum here:

Check your battery voltage and cables (or rather, the connection - especially the negative/ground connection on battery and frame).

Next, I would suspect key-switch, or the connector to it.

SpaceDude, your latest 'Signature' is eluding me. Gimme a hint!

I was thinking, "D'yer Mak'er", but it's not even close.

That is more, "Oh, oh oh oh-oh..."

That was actually the web version; it didn't look quite right to me. Here, try mine and see if it clicks for you:

O ooooo O O O O OOO
O ooooo O O O OO

Got it now?
