    The obvious answer is your instrument cluster has a problem. What have you done so far to figure out the problem?

Sounds like either a connector that serves the instruments, or a fuse. I would suspect a connector first off.

2006 rt 1200 wont start new battery neutral and first gear dont show on dash

The fact that the neutral light does not show up on the dash may indicate that the gear position indicator is not calibrated correctly. Does the bike start with the clutch pulled in?

If yours is a 2007 model, chances are good that the ABS pump has failed and needs to be replaced. Alternatively, look here: motorcycle repair

They repair the ABS units with a 5 year warranty.

Oil leaking from final drive. Seems to be coming from around the axle.

Depending on which side is leaking, it could indicate a simple seal replacement or something more serious like a failing bearing.

Leaking on RHS, is probably just a seal replacement. Leaking on LHS by the brake rotor and wheel may indicate a bearing about to fail. Put bike on center stand and get down beside the wheel. Hold wheel (with trans. in neutral) at 12 and 6 O'clock position try to move wheel by pulling and pushing towards yourself and away from yourself. There should be a barely discernable amount of play in the final drive bearing. Now, rotate wheel and feel/listen for grinding or other vibration that might indicate a bearing problem. If you have mechanical skills, you can drain the oil from the final drive an check for excessive metal particles.
