Sorry to hear of your mishap - glad that you're OK. Kinda sounds like a wire harness connector or connectors came loose or pulled out under the gauges. May want to double check your fuses as well. If 1 or 2 bulbs were out I might suspect blown bulbs but this sounds like more than that.

AZZKIKER is an unknown quantity at this point
Download the service manual and use it. It shows where all the fuses are and what they are for. Do a search for it here.

If it blows the fuse repeatedly you have a short somewhere. You will need to trace out the wiring to locate the problem. Use the wiring diagrams in the service manual to help you determine what is running off that fuse that keeps blowing. You may want to remove and unplug the gauge cluster - if the fuse doesn't blow with that disconnected its a problem within that unit. I would guess the bulbs are easily replaced but I have not done it on a superhawk. It could be a shattered bulb that has shorted out. Also look for any damaged wires, connectors, etc that could be shorting to the frame. Its probably an easy fix once you find where exactly the problem is.
