    Dead Dials on cluster

    Hi Folks,

    I wonder if anyone can give some advice to a total novice who now has both speedo and tacho needles dead on the cluster, both jumped about for a bit and finally died this year. I am wondering if this is a common problem and if there are some simple things I can check? I'm thinking that if I figure out how to get the cluster off I'll open it and a load of little tiny springs and things will pop out and I'll never get it back together again

    Any advice out there for this noob?

    It's not hard to get the cluster out, and since it's all electronics nothing will pop out at you! Chances are you will find some corroded connections. While you have it out it's worth replacing the little lamps with leds.


    Past Hondas:
    1960 125cc Honda Benly CB92R
    1964 305cc Super Hawk CB77, the only vehicle I have ever bought new in my life!
    Honda CB160, roadraced as 175cc 1967-1970.
    Honda Lawnmower, bought used in 2003, caught fire and melted in 2005.
