>>1) When the bike was new, I used to get mid to upper 40's. Now I get mid to upper 30's (77K miles)
I'm still geting mid to upper 40s with 42k miles on the bike now. I'm
wondering if the mileage decrease is due to old or worn carb float
needles and//or main jet needle.
On the electrical ghosts issue; Had you recently washed the bike or
ridden in rain. Sometimes after washing or rain riding my neutral and
oil pressure light will glow dimly; its a common thing in GPz and
Connies; something to do with water infiltrating the switches. +1 on
getting to that cluster socket. I would also be opening up the switch
pods on the handlebar give it a good douching with contact cleaner.

It's a pain to pull the tank and plastic off, but that's what's needed to get at the cluster wiring. Check for corrosion or bad connections.
