When riding, I can only read didital speedo--Help please

Postby miranda » Sat Aug 22, 2015 6:35 am

I've tried using Plastx and LOTS of elbow grease to clean shield over digitals but can only read speed when riding. In other words, I cannot make out temp, gas level, clock or trip meter while riding. Why? I suspect prior owner of my '04 Helix (8500 miles) kept bike out year-round in the hot Florida sun, but I'm not sure. He was original owner. I am second owner.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Can anyone help with a solution (other than replacing entire dash--too expensive)?

BTW all digitals work and can be seen when bike is under shade, but not while riding

Help please

I would try a polish compound for headlights. Also I have used a metal polish compound from Walmart forget the name but it's blue & smells of ammonia but use that as a last resort not sure if it will hurt the plastic.

Try a headlight compound or some superfine sandpaper for wetsanding.

Ancient thread, I know, but any chance OP was wearing polarized sunglasses? Makes a huge difference on mine... in a bad way.
