    Tony,

    I have thought of all that, but at the moment it works fine and I am trying to source another as a spare just in case. It lasts as long as it lasts. As I said earlier, I will get used to the new reading. All I can concentrate on now is 12 sleeps 'tlll we hit the apple isle, so I've assembled it and if it fails, I won't lose sleep. Mind you, I now have the experience to strip it down to the circuit board in less than 10 minutes.

    As for pulling it apart, I was going to but if you look at the dash there are back ground lights. My fear is pulling it apart and not being able to put it together again, then I'd have lights poking in my eye until I find a replacement. If/when it fails and I do replace it, I will strip it down and post up lots of nice pics. Right now, I'll let sleeping dogs lie.

    It'll cost near to 100 hard earned buying off Carmo. Now these things shouldn't be more than $20 including postage, so I'll look for a smashed up dash or a new stepper if it's reasonably priced. Time I have, as it's only the tacho.

    I'll keep you all posted.

    cheers

    Robert

    I think I've found some one in the States, he's just checking compatibility at the moment but hasn't mentioned price yet and he is slow (2 weeks to reply to my first email). We'll see.

    I've tried Ebay and Alibaba and nothing there is compatible and the vendors can't get the part number in question. If it shared parts with GM, I could get them by the fistful at next to nix.

    The guy I've contacted I got through the Ducati forums. Apparently some of them share the same part.

    part no. X15.689 also compatible with XB5.689, X27.689 and I think X25.689

    The original is mage by Switech part of the Swatch group but so far I can't get through to them.

    thanks Tony

    Not too bad if it fixes your problem. Like I said before - dash guru...

    We got them in, ready to ship.

    Ebay will be the cheapest route for postage. They have a special in-house global shipping program for international shipments. If you were to buy them directly from us, shipping would be near $50 USD.

    At last.

    I feel like I've been playing a game of Twister the last few months but it's finally over. Thanks to Justin at Tanin Auto I ordered two steppers and fitted one today (the other is a spare). Although it's a different part number - ...27 instead of ...25, it works perfectly. I finally have a fully functioning bike.

    Thanks to all who have taken part in this journey with words of wisdom and encouragement, it all helped.

    Now to ride and ride...and ride...............and ride.............................................and ride..........................................................and ride.

    cheers

    Robert

    The post that wont die.

    I had to strip the dash out again this weekend.

    People, be very careful on re-assemble. I left a big, FAT, ugly finger print in the middle of the tacho display. The good news is only 15 minutes to strip, clean and re-assemble.

    It bothered me greatly to look at, like a sore thumb, but it's all good now :D:D:clap::clap:.

    Kym,

    I didn't think of that. You've saved me future problems.

    PEOPLE drink white wine while working on your bikes.

    Only red - AND a South Orstralian Shiraz from Mclaren Vale, Barossa or the Clare Valley, to boot. No common plonk here. Reminder to self - Work on bike parts before the sun gets over the yardarm... Saves having to remove red wine fingerprints
