if any of you have read my other posts i had a ton of problems last year with my electrical system. i have cleared that up as far as i know. when i started it up the other day my tach was flipping out going in between 5-8 thousand rpm while at idle. as i started down the road i saw that i had no speedometer or odometer. the gas guage and temp seem to be working fine. i know there are a ton of things that this could be i am just looking for the general direction to start in. when i was coming to a stop i was stalling but i think that might have to do with the stepper motor. i am kinda at the end of my rope with this bike but it is nice and i have alot of fun on it when it is running right. it is a 2003 st 955 with just under 30k k&n filter and i think the off road exhaust. if anyone has any ideas that would be great and thanks to all in advance.

Sounds like your battery is on the way out . Very typical symptoms of this model.

Sorry to hear that you are still having issues. :(
