2002 CBR F4I:: Temp gauge problems

I've had my cbr for over a year now with no problems at all besides the cct rattle that is common on f4i's. Recently my temp gauge has been giving me trouble. Sometimes it works normal and displays everything. Sometimes it stays double 00,95,98, or - - like it's not reading anything. Sometimes it works normal on start then displays those mention above after a short distance. At times it will work normally right after I used the kill switch and display. Current temp. Does anyone might have an ideal on where to start? I was even told by this shop exit cycles there was a secondary switch that would kick in the fan if overheating came into play. Any facts to this? Thanks. I also do have some minor electrical problems that has to do with the lighting.

The first thing I would do is make sure the water level is high enough to hit the temp sensor on the radiator. Many have the sensor up high.

Check the harness plug on the left side of the bike for corrosion / melting. It's a gray colored plug.
