OK a few days in after ownership and my first problem....intermittent fault with the clocks....Speedo,fuel and rev counter stuck,then stopped,all needles went to zero...then all worked again..I turned the bike off then when restarting all was fine! Then the same thing happened again. This time restarting the bike didn't work.
Any suggestions ????

The analogue dash is driven by the digidash, so first of all check the digidash for damp problems. Are there any other visible signs such as steaming up or missing segments of the display, oddly behaving indicators and are all the functions such as odometer, trip meters, max speed and temp all clocking up normally?
If so then the problem is probably a poor connection at one or both ends of the loom between the digi and analogue dashes. On the back of the digidash are three plugs, two close together which are all the input/outputs and one spaced slightly apart, which is the output to the analogue dash. Check it's making good connection and hasn't got dirty or corroded pins.
At the other end you will need to remove the dash pod and lift it up so you can see the back of the dash and again check the cleanliness of the plug.
It sounds like the whole power or ground is slightly intermittent as although this is referred to as 'analogue' it's digitally driven stepper motors that move the needles, there is no direct connection with this and any of the functions that it displays.

As an update to this post I experienced similar problems - all gauges started reading low - I stopped switched off ignition restarted all okay. Then all gauges reading high - switched off ignition restarted all okay. Eventually when turning on ignition and running engine nothing happened so time to investigate. As suggested, the wiring connectors joining the clocks appeared dry - a squirt of wd40 and normal service has been resumed
