Somebody said You could put a brighter white bulb in!
So do You think it would come apart if You broke the epoxy???? What do they expect You to do when the bulb burns out? Probably replace the whole thing?Originally posted by Gunner F5@Dec 7 2002, 08:08 AM
Good luck with the speedo lighting!! I disassembled mine to find that the circuit boards are screwed together and the board is covered with clear epoxy to prevent the screws from vibrating loose. You would have to break the epoxy seal on the screws to take it apart further to locate the bulbs. Then I would be very cautious as to what wattage of bulbs you would replace them with. Remember, this speedo is very dependent on the correct amount of supplied voltage.

That's a good question!! If you ask me, except for the tach recall feature (if it works correctly) this tach is nothing more than sexy technology!! It's kinda like having your wife/girlfriend wearing sexy undergarments: Looks real good but in all likelyhood SHOULDN'T improve overall performance!! :lol: :lol:
I meant girlfriend in general, not anyone in particular!!
Seriously though, I would have been happy with the ZR gauges because down the road, I bet that tach would be very $$$$$ to replace!!! I suppose the screws could be recoated with epoxy after you replace them but as far as the bulb, well we probably need to check with the tach supplier..

You got it !! Trip meter comes handy when you use it to find unmarked trails ( 2.2 miles, take two track, then... etc. ) About 70 miles on it and not one problem so far!! I know I need to remove some shims from the secondary to tighten up the belt and after about 40 miles the exhaust donut quit leaking and the paint is still on the pipe. The only problem I have is you really feel like your sitting down too far but not a biggie.
When I first rode I went for 25 miles under 7000 rpm without shutting it off. It wanted to start hard after sitting for 5 minutes but once the pre mix is out , I'll rejet, adjust the low speed circuit, clutch it, change the gearing, and this thing should hang with any sled out there to about 60 - 70 mph!!!
One thing worth noting, it would definitely hook up better with studs!! Even with the deep lug track, it wants to spin out of the hole. Nothing that can't be tuned out however. All being said, I :wub: :wub: my F5 SNO PRO after 70 miles. BTW , CATMAN2, don't you live near Ann Arbor Mi. ???
