Did not have a problem with mine. How is it "going bad?" What is it doing (or not doing)?

Simply it gets lighter to where you can't see the letters or digits.
So I can't even see the miles, fuel, clock, etc!!!

Is that the only electrical gremlin on the bike? Everything else works fine? How long did it work fine (1st speedo and 2nd speedo).

Yup that's been my ONLY issue.
The first one happened at around 12800 miles.
Second one at 9000 (on new odometer).

Really, no one?
It just seems strange this happened not only once but twice now.
From my perspective, it seems like this would be a common problem.....:(

Well took her in yesterday.
They'll look at it, have to call in for the warranty, order the new speedo and replace it AGAIN.
Service guy said I am the only one that they've seen this happen to and now TWICE!
I'm gonna take a big hit on resale because of all this...:(

You're not the only one. I've had one replaced already, and just this morning the second one did the exact same thing. Now I can't read anything on the LCD display.

So this HAS happened to someone else!
My dealer said to try and keep the Bike out of the elements.....
It's garaged when I'm not riding and I always look for a shady spot to park.....
Guess I need a bubble....

Try to keep it out of the elements???? I'd tell my dealer right then and there that there aint a chance of it. They'll just have to make sure my bike can stand up to the elements. (It's basically what I told my dealer when my electronic cruise control module fried on my ole KP). It's not like we bought some cheap bike that costs $6k new. 'cmon, they are designed to be able to hold up to the elements and if it fails, its on them to resolve it so it can. I ride in all weather and my expensive bike better be able to ride in all weather too. They need to find the permanent solution for you, bottom line.

I'm not sure where you live, but in Texas even in the garage the temperatures get extremely hot. It makes sense that heat is what causes these LCD mini-screens to fail because both of mine failed during the Summer months.

And I'm right there with you - seems like we need a bubble to go with our Vics.

Central FL.
The only precaution I take when I park my bike somewhere is to put my helmet over the speedo if no shade or rain is likely....

I wounder if there was a tinny I mean tinny vent hole on the bottom of the housing heat wouldn't build up on them. Maybe ask dealer what he thinks an then if he puts the hole in you could still be covered.

The dealer should have kept it in doors on the showroom floor if it wasn't designed to be out in the elements and be used.
