My indicator lights are out, at least 5 lights total, the turn signal indicator lights, high beam, and back light for the speedometer
. I want to change them but don't know how or if i can, i was told i might have to replace the whole thing, does anyone have any ideas?

All those lights are LEDS and ususally when they are out it's the fault of the two green connectors under the right-hand side front of the fuel tank. Has the trip counters been resetting as well?

Indicator lights

I agree with blackdot and epiphysis.. all lights are LED's and the likelyhood of ALL of them being bad are smaller than a gnats backside. You have something else going on.. connectors and fuses as they mentioned. Anything else not working... may point you even further in the right direction.

The LED's that lightup the speedo and indicators are not replaceable without soldering...99% sure you have a buggered up green connector where the instrument panel connects with the main wiring harness...Those a fragile connectors and very easy to break the locking tab...

As far as a manual..The onwer's manual (if you bought the bike brand new) is behind the left sidecover inside the tool compartment...The 1300 service manual is available as a free download right here on the Cafe...Red sticky thread in the 1300 section...
