    I pulled mine apart the other day, but stopped short at removing the bottom/back piece. All screws were out and I did not want to break whatever was holding the back on. If you pull yours apart, can you take pics of what is holding it together after the screws are out?

    Happy to attend and/ or host any "fix an external switch" session Greg might care to run!!
    Even got a small bag of waterproof, rubberized, 10mm push-button switches sitting there for the purpose.
    wink, wink :-)
    AND a camera, of course!

    Glitch lets do it at your place. Nev is ready/needs the mod. Name a day.

    Pretty much any time coming weekend is fine with me.
    What else is needed?
    Thin multi-strand, superglue (or epoxy?), small drill for drilling the housing, silicon to seal the hole, thin conduit or heatshrink, some cableties?

    This weekend suits me too. Sat is probably better. (PI MotoGP is on Sun).

    Same problem with my Strada. Dealer has ordered a new dash, don't know when it will arrive.
    Where do you mount the new button?

    If, ....IF!... that new dash shows up reasonably soon and things can get going (coding etc), I'd happily buy the old dash off you!!
    I can see lots of those buttons failing long past the warranty period and would love to suss out some sort of generally applicable fix or bypass
    as the failure is basically just a plain mechanical one.

    The new external button can be placed where ever you want....or discard the high-beam flasher function by using that already existing switch for flicking over the display instead
    (the way Greg/ Dandydisco has done it).

    If anyone has an old dash unit floating about, please pm!! Around the corner... or on the other side of the globe, doesn't matter...all I'm after if the board inside and the left part of the white "honeycombe" plastic that houses the pushpins. Don't need a complete housing/ electricals etc.

    Thanks, mate ....but at US$300 I have to pass....enthusiasm only goes that far :-)
    Someone should email the seller and make him aware of the fact that without the matching ECU and key-set the thing is pretty much worthless.

    Yep, you are right. I thought it was way out of line price wise too.

    Charlie I have been doing doing alot of work with WayneC on the Terra and we've made a hell of alot of progress. There are anxious moments when we connect up the bike for fear of frying either the dash or ECU. Thankfully no hikkups so far.
    Just a thought but this dash would be ideal for continuing the work that WC is doing, for all of our benefit as a TR community.
    Perhaps make the guy an offer and see where he's at?

    Broken button also happened to me but my mechanic came up with an ingenious solution. Fisrt he found a plastic cylinder and with compound glue( two parts glue) he glue it right on the indentation of the broken button. Then he found the right length and width screw as seen in the pics and done! It works perfectly!!!
