LCD unit ( display for radio,clock and air for shocks )

Postby Altmeier1 » Wed Oct 02, 2013 8:52 pm



My LCD unit has a discoloration and is hard to read if at all is there a way anyway can be fixed or do I need to replace that unit. I was wondering how difficult it would be to replace it I have replaced alternators, breaks etc. but I never took the dash off thank you in advance for your replies. Tom

Is it the clear plastic cover, or the LCD itself that is discolored?

If the screen looks like it it dark on one side and ok on the other the lamination is coming apart. The screens are no longer available from Honda, but you may be able to find someone on other online parts houses that bought up all that was left. Not cheap, I did check at one time but I would be lying if I gave you a number, just don't remember. Sorry. Good luck.

If I sent this already sorry. My reply just disappeared, the colors are red,blue and some black . It covers about half the screen vertically. My only concern is that I cannot check the air pressure in my rear shocks since I bought his bike used do you guys know if there's a way to check the air's pressure without using the digital readout? Thanks Tom

That's the delamination that bustedwing mentioned. The polarizing layer sometimes causes interference patterns that you can see as colors. Unfortunately, there is no way to repair it, and the only fix is to buy a new (to you) unit - and as mentioned, they are not cheap.

What I did was installed an inline air gauge and mounted it on the right side so I could see it. Next I'll have to figure how to see the radio stations, time is not such a big deal. Takes a little time to install the gauge, not real hard.
