    Question Digital Clock

    Ok Here is my first some what technical question.

    The Bike : 1986 K75s
    Problem : Digital Clock on gages has never worked on bike sence I bought it 12 years ago.

    Looking thrue the 2 books I have and asking dealers I am told this can only be fixed by buying a whole new gage cluster. After reading some of the postes here I have come to realize there are braver people out there than I, and perhaps one of wich may have ran into this problem and fixed it already?

    Not a very big deal, just one of those minor things I have always wondered about. Thank you for any light that can be shed on this small mystory.

    The parts fiche shows a clock (part no. 62111459368) available. I don't know why you couldn't replace yours. However, at $145, you could find a pretty nice aftermarket clock to put elsewhere, and not have to take your cluster apart.

    Hey there, Matt. You may want to check out Bob Wilsons "How To" on LCD Clock Repair on the IBMWR site:

    So how does one get enough LT fairing off to access the instrument cluster????

    I've got the same kind of clock problem. The lower segment of the second digit is intermittent.

    Just like on BMW cars, it means a ribbon cable or solder joint is bad.

    I don't have any problem tearing into the cluster to resolder the clock chip (in fact I'll mod it to work in 12-hour mode at the same time). But actually getting to the back of the cluster on my '93 1100 LT looks dauntung to say the least.

    Any wisdom on such matters from the board? Is there a web resource I'm missing??

    Thanks in advance...

    Bill,

    I've just had my instrument cluster out of my '93 LT, and unless you're a contortionist, some disassembly is required. I already had the bike torn down some, but I found that removing the dash panel and the electric windshield mechanism (about a dozen screws all told), and then approaching the bike from the front, makes removal doable.

    The 4 fasteners holding the cluster are recessed into the bracket, so you cant' see them, but they are 5 mm allen head bolts. Once, you've got those removed, the wire harness connector is held on by a captive 3 mm allen head screw.

    Hope that helps.

    That's what I was hoping for...

    I wanted to RR to window motor anyway to lube any moving parts so it's a bonus that I can get to the motor while working on the clock...

    Thanks,

    Bill
