speedo issues LCD is going out

Ok I know I read something about this but I can't find it now ??

I have a '10 990 @ 12500 miles
I noticed the display wigging out like a watch with a weak battery. I remember something about white dust inside the display . I have this .

Of course my warranty is out a couple weeks ago . I'm about ready to park it and do some maintenance . Can Some one remind me or show me the thread PLEASE ........

If the warranty ended a couple weeks ago, go talk to your dealer, he may be able to assist you in goodwill. then get your hands dirty. Sorry don't know the thread!

Yeah that was my thread: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=851845

You can try dismounting it, removing the bezel and blowing it out with compressed air. That worked for a while but ultimately it started acting up again.

Luckily mine was still under warranty. Dealer still gave me a hassle so I called KTM North America and they took care of it: 440-985-3553

Clearly they have a known issue so they should hopefully take care of you too.

Good luck.

Well I went to a dealer close to me that has just added KTM to it's inventory . I was happy to learn that my warranty isn't up yet. There was a promo attached I was not a where of . My vin search was interesting tho ..... Just so there is no confusion I bought this bike new old stock last Nov.

At any rate I'm golden part is on the way .

During my talk with the service manager the term " good will " came up . From what he said the factory MAY warranty the part but I would have to cover labor for the install .

Maybe try again see if you can get the guy to make a call . From the half of the phone call I could hear this is a known issue I would hope that they would work with you some ......
