Your efforts to learn about your new airhead and to take the steps necessary to restore it to reliability will be rewarded tenfold...in the fullness of time. Unless a prior owner "customized" the electrical system, many gremlins are cured (and later avoided) by a thorough cleaning and dielectric greasing of connections. Many airhead maintenance tasks are sort of intimidating the first time and then are much simpler later. Clymer can make removal of the cluster sound like a two hour job, but I can have mine off in 15 minutes if needed...and I have an S fairing. It just comes with practice. We can walk you through any of the jobs if you get stumped. Keep up the good work.
