    I see you had a good time on Friday.
    Are you replacing the leds because they have broken down? I am not aware that anyone has been damaged.

    Thanks for sharing

    Ditto - what Digital said.   LED's hardly ever fail, almost never more than one at a time.  The problem may be the LED "driver's".

    Please let us know what you find out.

    Hey guys!,
     yes, when I Purchased this bike about a month ago i noticed that my LCD screen was flickering on the right hand side. you could see two legs flickering as all the others stayed solid. once I disassembled the cluster I applied 2.6 volts to the two LED's one light up the other did not. what i found was on one the one the did not light up that it had broken down internally and was not making a solid connection, the second was effected as these lights seem to be wired in pairs. I ordered some SMD 3528 led lights ( 100 for $5 lol) and replaced both with my SMD rework station that I already had. reassemble the cluster and good as new!. a lot cheaper then buying a $1300 replacement from triumph plus the cost to have it programmed to my bike lol..
    scratch that..... was a total of $20 to do the repair as I also had to buy a 12pack of beer  :745:

    Good to hear !!  Congrats.

    Friendly warning :  Don't connect a voltage source directly to any LED - always use a resistor between the voltage source & LED to limit current and reduce the volatge applied to the LED.  Otherwie you risk damaging the LED.

    When I repaired the instrument panel for the problem with the turn signals, I could see that there are SMD components that are not well soldered to the PCB.

    interesting write up you did! I poked around my board to see if anything visually looked deteriorated, always worth looking while its opened up.
