    Unfortunately the lcd instrument display is a bit fecked, only half of the digit segments work at any one time.
    Can anyone recommend a place that would be able repair it please?

    Have you tried sourcing a used replacement - may well be cheaper and quicker?

    Your lounge is a disgrace by the way.

    It's a Jap home market import, as far as I can tell. I've scoured flea bay but zilch, not even a broken one.

    Dunno what you mean- that's the tidy end.

    Couple of pics to show the issue.
    It goes from one to the other every now and again.

    I would be tempted to (very carefully) try a heat gun!
    You never know!
    At least you might get consistancy i.e. nothing working!!

    I seem to remember there is a place that specialises in LED repairs - I remember seeing this in relation to Lexus cars (Lexi? The thinking mans Mercedes. Ah ha!) I'll see if I can track it down.

    I am aware of them, thanks.:thumbsup:
    I was wondering if anyone knew of and had used bike specific repairers.
    I will email them to see if they would be interested in the challenge.

    I have found and emailed a company that are about 10 miles from me. I await their response.:icon_pc:

    Thanks to all for their help and keep suggestions coming.:thumbup:

    If you know what country this model was sold in maybe see if you can access the local eBay?

    Is there an owners club?

    Japanese home market, as per post #3 :private: :p. I don't speak Japanese so not looked at/for their flea bay.[/QUOTE]

    Dunno:nusenuse: bin too busy searching how to repair it to look for owners clubs:p:risas3:

    I have wandered into a few forums relating to the model, but not much info replied to similar questions.
