Gang; Despite having been a member for almost 10 years, I have never used to Forum to help solve a problem until now. I have an '01 1150 GS with 100-plus thousand miles on it. Still runs very well.
About a year or so ago, my RID stopped working. I bought a used unit from Re-psycle and had it installed. My mechanic - a Master Certified guy who has always done first-rate work - told me he couldn't remember the last time he'd seen on fail. Anyway, 6 months later THAT one failed, and it failed in the same way as the first one - it "froze" on - displaying a "fixed" engine temp, fuel level, gear selection, and time, even when the bike was turned off. The display didn't change at all at any time.
I took it back to the dealer and had a NEW unit installed (not cheap). It worked fine for about 5 or 6 months and then it, too, FROZE! Back to the dealer - mechanic told me he'd never seen that before and had no idea the cause. He disconnected/re-connected everything and it "cleared" and started working again. It worked fine for about 2 months and then FROZE up again.
I have gone to the dealer AGAIN to have my Service Rep tell me he's "not sure how we're going to proceed" with this. I know how I'm going to proceed . . . I'm going to continue to return to them until it's fixed, seeing as how I've paid them to do that and it still isn't working. Problem is, the mechanic continues to tell me he has no idea what's causing this repetitive problem.
I sure would appreciate any/all suggestions (except those that think I should just live with it)>
