Just replace the gear indicator switch. It's been a while since I did this on my '85, but the symptoms were if it rained....the readings went to gibbrish.
The procedure in in the Clymer manual - but I recall that you need to remove the swingarm and I also recall that there were a couple of different designs over the years. Make sure you get the right model for your year bike.
"What follows is based on actual occurrences. Although much has been changed for rhetorical purposes, it must be regarded in its essence as fact. However, it should in no way be associated with that great body of factual information relating to orthodox Zen Buddhist practice. It's not very factual on motorcycles, either."
