Thumb G650GS prob with dials/clocks

OK peeps, I know this bike isn't strictly covered in this forum (it's a smaller sibling of the evil twin) but on a general issue you may be able to help out.

Washed the dirt off my GS yesterday then took it out for a ride. Did about 18kms and suddenly both dials dropped to zero. Bike still ran perfectly but with the following:
no rev counter (not too important)
no speedo (oops)
no warning lights - neutral, ABS, indicators, oil
no indicators working

clock still works as do the horn, heated grips, kill switch and the bike still started numerous times

Any ideas? Is there a fuse for the console (but why the working clock)

OK, before you get the boot, my experience with those bikes is that it's a warranty item. Check the single forum to see if it's common.

The G bikes were made cheaply and with Chinese built engines in the first years and were a warranty nightmare. We had them leaking all over the showroom (like the old Harleys!). Many recalls and part replacements due to failures.

Sorry if this is news to you.
