Electronic speedo
« on: February 28, 2016, 04:50:28 am »
Hi
The electronic speedo often fails to work for a short time then rectifies itsslf after a few minutes, seems to happen more in cold weather.
Is this a known problem, and if so any advice to fix this would be appreciated?

Regards

It's a known 'feature' I wouldn't so much say it's a problem as the digital speedo is only a secondary readout. The analogue works fine. There are a number of threads on this. If you put digital or speedo in the search function you will get a few hits.

The only electronic speedometer I ever see is the one that starts flashing when i twist my wrist to pass quickly with the cruise control set. :017:

With mine, it's the analog needle that would lose its mind for a brief moment- drops to 0 rpm then back up.  The times I happened to catch it in the act, the digital speedo read out did not glitch.  I don't much look at the analog speedo anyway and have the digital speed readout programmed to show all the time.

I tend to use the digital speedo more than the analog, so it is a bit annoying when it suddenly cuts out.  It does seem to happen only when it is cold but the last time I pulled over for a coffee and it worked ok again when I re-started the bike even though it was still cold.   All is not lost as U usually have my Sat Nav running as well so can see the speedo on that.

This happened with mine when the temp was under zero. Triumph knew about it when I picked mine up a few years ago. I am suprised they havent fixed it yet.
