Replacing a digital clock

Postby manofallseasons » Mon Mar 30, 2015 6:23 pm



I have a 1987 GL1200 and would like to replace the clock. I picked up another one on ebay and it looks like it should just push in (after I remove the old clock). However, I can't get the old clock farther out than about 1/8". Can't figure this one out. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks. Dean

You are going to have to pull the dash. Either a bracket ith screws or a collar holds the clock in. Sounds like that is what is fighting you.

Thanks! I was afraid I'd get a message like that. Don't know much about taking things apart so this might have to wait until I can see a video on it or find someone to do it for me. I live in the countryside so there aren't many people who can help out. Dean

Why don't you take a look at the parts manual on this site? After looking at it you may get an idea of where and what screws or clips to remove to get to the unit. Won't hurt to look. Good luck.

Can you put your link up again? All I can see on the post is two maps. Thanks!

Here is the place to find manuals.

http://goldwingdocs.com/Manuals.asp?type=GL1200

That being said, a parts manual is not a substitute for the service manual, but you may be able to see where screws or clips are located to remove the bezel holding the clock. Just a thought. I would recommend you might purchase a service manual for the bike. They are very handy and cover many things. You could do some minor work that you would be comfortable doing with the manual as a reference. Give it some thought, I started that way.

Take care and good luck.
