If all are that it's more like connection issue. but you can open the clock no problem. The bulbs are very tiny and have a plastic holder that needs to turn to loosen and replace.

303 im willing to help you, but im in california. maybe if u were willing to ship me your unit, ide fix it for you and ship it back. for free! just pay for shipping and light bulbs. either u can supply bulbs or i can get them and u can reimburse me. just an option for you.

Hey chill out man. It's going to be OK, I promise. You'll feel much better once we get you your medication, I promise.

In all seriousness though are you still covered under the factory warranty? Because I had this same thing happen to my 05 1000S and had to ultimately get the unit changed out by the dealer to correct it. Your problem maybe different, but that's was the only way they knew to fix mine.

I'm being told it's only bulbs. I just want to replace them, if that's possible. My local MV dealer had the tech searching for the Blinker Fluid Dip Stick, so I don't think my bike will ever see a Colorado dealer until Cagiva has another dealer in Colorado, or properly trains the existing dealership?!?!?!?

I have the same prob. A flaky bulb on the speedo. Tach is fine. I'm sure mine is just a connection issue because it's flaky. Just haven't opened it up yet, but it looks pretty easy. Just pull the nose off, and you can see how the speedo is attached.

I've had bikes look similar after I've gone down at about 75mph. But, I don't think it likely that I will ever be capable of getting something like that apart intentionally!!

I'm glad you seem to be getting some help on this, but I don't this sort of post is going to win you many friends. I'm guessing it's some 'hangover' from your problems with eMoto, but I think you should remember that the members are spread throughout the world - so it may take some time for the earth to turn and people to log on. There are also going to be some times when people just don't know, so abusing everyone with sarcasm really isn't going to be an appropriate response.

On a related note, is there any way to disable that green "idiot" light showing that the headlight is on? For some reason, I find it really annoying that it is on by "default."

I think there's a separate thread about this somewhere, but from memory the consensus was to simply remove the bulb.

I haven't had m ine apart. But, from the pics in this thread, it appears all of the bulbs are actually diodes...LEDs??

Yep - I think you might be right. I'll try to find the old post...

Okay. And, you're probably right that some of my hostility stems from my recent experience with e-moto. Just kinda gets under my skin. Finally made the decision to step up to "THE BIKE" and having to contend with all of this less than stellar "Service". Anyway...thanks!!!

On older bikes you could switch it off, by law it needs to stay on and became an idiot light like you say. Open the tacho and stick black tape over it inside. All lights are led's except for the LCD screen and rev counter.
