Re: Trip meter goes zero...

should be a condensator ... but not sure ...
You could install a sigma speedo for about 20$ ... that will do the trick and it is more accurate than the stock one ... a lot more with a 15th sprocket ;-)



You can see the difference of precision reading the 2 trips with a 15th sprocket ;-)

Re: Trip meter goes zero...

If the odometer resets when you cycle the ignition you either have a low battery charge, a poor battery ground connection or the power line to the odometer is not powered up ( Loose/poor connection at the meter, blown fuse etc. )
First check that the odometer fuse is ok and if so, verify that you have power on the R/G wire to the meter with the ignition off.
The odometer is powered, with the key off, through that circuit.
As far as speedo error is concerned I have had good luck with a Speedo Healer that is adjustable to compensate for sprocket changes, tire wear etc.

English as a Second Language.
I meant tripmeter even though I said odometer.
Sorry 'bout that.

Re: Trip meter goes zero...

For sigma, I have found it in a "sport" store where you can buy stuff for bicycle ;-)
It's made for bicycle but can display 200 to 300 km/h :wink:
It's more accurate for the trip but for the speedo the difference is really big !
Stock speedo is very optimistic ....
