No turn signal or highbeam indicator lights

So, I've taken the tank off a couple of times to do (and redo-don't ask) the valves. Now, I get the FI, neutral and oil lights at start up, but no turn signal or highbeam indicator lights on the dash. Turn signals & highbeam work. Just nothing on the dash. What gives?

The are several plug in points in the wiring harness between the frame and headlamp. You may have disconnected one or more when removing/reinstalling the tank.

Three leds on the speedo unit go to Ground on the Green Ground wire on the connector with seven wires.
They happen to be the ones not illuminating. Most of the 7 pin speedo connectors have green bodies.
Sometimes the pin gets pushed back, sometimes bent. Inspect carefully..
This from the 04-05 R schematic.
Adding your VTX year and model to the signature line would help.
