K75S electrical issue

Hi there

I've got an electrical problem with the k75 that started today. When I touch the brakes in normal riding, the dashboard would stop working (rev counter drop to 0, speedo drop to speedo, and the battery light would come on dimmly).
I then parked up and when I tried to start the bike there was no reponse. The ignition was on and there was the usual ticking of (what i imagine to be) the fueling system priming, but the dash was dead.
Indicators and horn work fine, brake light doesnt work using either brake.

Any suggestions as to what may be happening?
Cheers

The main problem with these bikes is that they are getting on a bit, so most of the electrical connections have corroded.
The best place to start is with a can of contact cleaner and clean every connection you have, check the plug on the back of the clocks carefully.
The earth from the battery can give problems, replace with the same or higher spec.
it also appears that the starter motor can cause electrical problems when worn.
