    My Capo from 2001, less than 7000 miles, I bought here with 2000 miles, surprised me after the winter, were she was held warm and on permanent power, with a direct ignition and running mode, covered with the beautifull sound of a Italian stallion. But surprice, surprice, the dash was as dead as hell.
    To make my story short, I followed your most perfect instructions and after resolder the capaciter, my dash was lightening like a christmastree again.
    Words cannot cover my gratitude for your explanation on the net.
    Ron, many thanks for your input.

    On my bike the plastic "faces" on the speedo and engine speed gauges have cracked, suspecting that someone has put some ropes over them in transport.

    Can I get new plastics for them somewhere, or would it be easiest (cheapest) to buy some plastics and cut them according to the old ones?

    Thanks,
    Ville

    I wish it would be like that... It's more cracked, there are 3-4 cracks which go about half way over the gauge and are probably all the way through. Like something would have pressed on them hard.

    Has anyone attempted to self-fix this by cutting new plastics?

    £24 seems a good price..... it was really annoying yesterday the sunlight was just at the level to cause the fractures to reflect.......

    Thanks for the manual, last estimate is that you saved me about 1000 euro.



    Thanks

    No Tacho

    Hey Guys,
    Great to see so many willing to help.
    I pulled my perfectly working dash out ( 04 RST 60,000klm ) to fit some HID Ballasts and when I refitted it I now have no Tacho every thing else works.
    Any advise as what to check would be apreciated.
    Ta.

    Hi Ron, I am looking for the part number for the Zener diode and the two smaller components next to the zener (think these are zeners also). My friend has brought me his dash and these three components are burnt away! Simon.
