Had my 2010 XR now for under a month and it seems the VDO Odometer is not Waterproof...

My XR was out in the rain during a very severe Storm and got "Totally saturated"... not that a bit if water hurts a well built Machine, you should be able to ride in such conditions.

But, now the LCD Display in the Odometer Gauge is acting up, the lower half of the LCD display is feint or non existent.

Took it off the bike and apart as much as I could and found that the spare plug port is not exactly Water Tight seal and that is where I suspect it has taken in Moisture.

So, I suspect that given these are a Sealed Unit (as I could not actually open the unit up as it is well Glued together, that this unit can only be Replaced..?

Before I go to see my local VM dealer and die from shock at the NEW Price of these, does anyone have a 2nd Hand Metric (KLM) Odometer for a 2010 model XR...?

My next Question is... Is the Odometer Reading for the distance travelled stored in the ECU or on the Odometer itself and would VM be able to reset a New Odometer with the current Mileage on my existing unit..?

Switchable

I have a 2011 XR or Cross Roads. The speedo switches from MPH to KPH on my. Just got to get into the operators manual and it tells how on my bike. Yours maybe different, but I dought it. They are trying to sell these bikes world wide, so it does not make since to me they would have made two different speedometers. My is totally electric, no speedo cable. Also I took the chrome covers off the back(front) side of the speedo, just removed one screw and the cup came off. Have not had any problems with moisture in it yet, knock wood. I have ran into the LED numbers fading out with the bike sitting out in the direct summer sun all day long, seems they always come back though after riding it.

If you have all the connectors removed, it may resolve itself. Let it dry real good then reassemble with di-electric grease to seal the moisture out of the connectors. I had some strange activity from my Cross Country after a torrential downpour. Dried all the connectors and all is well.

Edit: Speedblue is correct. The units are universal and the owner manual tells how to select between KM and miles. If your machine didn't come with an Owner Manual, you can download one from Victory.
