    Washed my bike then....

    The speedo stopped working for a while. Until the sun got on it and warmed it up. Now it works just fine. Guess I'll need to NOT spray it so much on the next wash.....

    Sounds like it needs resealed. Do it before the next rainstorm. The original cluster on my K burnt up because it got too wet....

    I think the glass was leaking on mine...

    I actually just re-epoxied the glass as it had cracked and come apart all over. Guess I'm going to have to take it back apart and get in there with some clear silicone.

    Another reason NOT to wash a K bike. Last time I washed mine I slipped on wet/soapy concrete as I was putting it into the garage and I dropped the bike.

    I think it looks better dirty anyway.
