My tail light and light for my speedometer and tach won't light up. All other lights work. Is there a fuse that controls these items? Where should I look. I have removed everything so Iam down to a...

No there are no fuses for the lights, the easy way to check is use a voltmeter and check for 12V at the light bulb contacts, if you have 12V the light bulbs are bad, if you don't you have wiring issues

Speedo condensation

run a bead of clear silicone between bezel and glass. You might want to mask off the clear glass and cut a small gap about 1/8" into the glass with a razor blade or X-acto knife (they will not scratch glass - if it is glass). Then use the clear silicone - let it start to harden for an hour (pull tape off before it sets completely).

Nothing on starter button battery all ok

I had an intermittent starting problem with my Piaggio MP3 which turned out to be water ingress and some "corrosion" inside the ENGINE STOP SWITCH

It's very easy to get at, fairly easy to disconnect from the wiring loom connector and then remove from the handlebar shroud, and not too difficult to open it up and get inside.
It's then simple to dry and clean up any contact metal surfaces that look dirty or "corroded".
I used several cotton buds and some isopropyl alcohol

You can get a very soft abrasive "eraser" specially designed to remove oxidation from PCB edge connectors which would also do a fine job of cleaning up these contacts

Once cleaned I applied a little bit of petroleum jelly to both help protect the electrical contacts and repel water

Then just reverse the processes.

Mine's been OK ever since

My 2005 rd king classic speedo has what looks like dried condensation on the inside can i clean this off.

Regrettably, you cannot get inside the speedo without cutting the top ring off. You may be able to take your speedo to a speedo rebuilding service and get this fixed but the cost would probably be more than a new speedo would cost.

Good Luck

Water in Oil!

I would go for the water pump seal first, it is an easy fix. Pull the left case cover and there it is. You will of course have to take the water pump cover off and all the plumbing that goes with it. Be sure that when you put the new water pump seal in not to put any lubricant like oil or grease on it. This is a ceramic seal and oil or grease on it will ruin it. There is also a spring in there that keeps pressure on the seal so replace that as well. You will see what is there when you get it apart. Replace any corroded/rusted parts. Take a good look at the impeller and make sure it is 100% while you are in there. Sometimes these will break loose from the shaft. If you have any questions about it replace it. If after that you still have water in the oil it would be a head or base gasket I am thinking requiring an adult to intervene, a qualified Ducati mechanic.
