Intermittent speed display
on: 11 July, 2016, 09:47:44 PM
2010 Tiger. Speed and odometer displays are wonky. The quality kind of comes and goes. During initialization all the segments display so I think the cluster is good. When it settles to the normal display it goes bad.
I've cleaned the instrument cluster connection and reseated the ECU plugs to no avail. Any ideas?

Replaced the instrument cluster and that solved the problem. Fortunately found one on ebay for $325US vs $1000 new.

I cant believe that cost $1000 new, its unbelievable how the manufacturers got us by the balls. If my 2010 display stops working i will just wing it and fill up every second ride and i know how fast i am going by my built in sphincter gauge.

I thought the 2010 models had the 2-button clocks--shows how much attention span I have or how good my memory is not.   :164:  Glad you got it sorted and really glad you got a good one from eBay.

I know this is old but mine just did this. Although mine is not intermittent but seems permanent.

Indy, any insight as to what went wrong with the ones you have fixed?  I can replace components on a PCB if necessary.

Thanks,
Greg
Cheers!

Replaced it before my trip to Prudhoe Bay last June.

It's an old post, I realise, but is there any progress on finding the issue?

My Tiger 2009 SE got the same problem.
After reconnecting the cable (on the backside of the panel) the display is functioning properly. However, the problem occurs again after a few rides. It happens at: a. turning on the ignition or b. when the Xenon light kicks in after 10 seconds (using a delayed relay).

The weird part here is that when the motor is turned off and turned on again (the next day or so), the problem remains. I need to physically disconnect and reconnect the connector at the backside of the panel (or disconnect the battery).

I did disassemble the dashboard to PCB level and resoldered some pads as they were terribly bad soldered, but the problem still remains.

I have the feeling that the high voltage of the Xenon lights might interfere on the earth/ground of the motor, but thats difficult to measure.
Does anyone know about a diagram of the PCB which is on the internet somewhere?
