    Replacing Instrument Clocks

    Hi All

    Has anyone replaced (or had replaced) the clocks on a Gen 1 ?

    I have a possible issue with mine and might need to replace them. I have been told though they are coded to the VIN of the bike and I can't just buy a set secondhand and fit them.

    Thanks in advance.

    That is correct, the clocks are indeed coded to the original ECU and it's VIN, also, Euro-3 clocks are not compatible with Euro-4 ECU's.....So you cannot use 15/16 clocks on a 17, 18 or 19 and vice-versa. You can't just buy another set of clocks from a wrecker and plonk them in, it just won't work. Mileage and ECU info is kept in the clocks.

    I "think" compatible new/second-hand clocks may be able to be coded to the bike via GS-911, otherwise it's a dealer job.
