1800 left control panel wanted

Post by joewing » Wed Sep 01, 2010 11:21 am

I need the control panel (don't know what else to call it) for left side, where 1800 has buttons for suspension and headlight aim. Unless someone can tell me how to restore color after hydraulic fluid got on it. The tech forum helped me figure out how to change clutch fluid on my '06, and with real trepidation, I managed to do it w/o a fluid incident. Then deer got in the way, and I now have a different Wing ('08) that was outside a long time and really needed fluid change. Don't get cocky the 2nd time you do this!!!

You can't really restore the ABS plastic after hydraulic (clutch/brake) fluid gets on it. It chemically changes the plastic and makes it brittle - it will only be a matter of time before it starts to crack and fail. You're better off doing what you're doing - look for replacement parts.
