    Welcome aboard, buffdaddy!

    I sure wouldn't spend the money for a new display. If you're not getting power to the hot wire on the speedo pickup, I'd just splice another +12v wire to it. Make sure...

    That's what I did. Pull out the grommet and put sealer all around it, then all over the wires where they go into the plug. It looks messy, but keeps the water out.

    It's not designed to come apart. You can remove the rubber plug on the back to try to dry it out, but that usually works only within a day or less of when it got water in it (or whatever happened). ...

    Thanks, BusaPilot! I may have to open up the one I've got. I opened an Ultra 150 display using a heated Exacto knife (it's like a soldering iron with a knife blade instead of a soldering tip).

    I've switched displays in at least one of my STXs. Some things to consider:

    3 plugs or 4? Trim indicator? Fuel gauge sender resistance? Check engine warning?

    This is what's inside:

    Notice the white strip at the bottom. This is actually a connector that connects the circuit...

    Great! Glad the alcohol worked. I've got one on the bench right now that I put a bunch of contact cleaner in and I ended up making it worse.
  8. If it had water in it for any length of time,...

    If it had water in it for any length of time, especially with the power turned on, it's probably toast. Corrosion starts to eat up all the connections and wire traces on the circuit board, then...

    Don't know about the key not turning on the display. With water coming out, make sure to reach in there with a stiff bristle brush (they make them for cleaning electronic parts) and scrap off any...

    Both of my STXs and my running Ultra are on their 2nd displays. The Ultra got water in it once and I dried it out, didn't seal it. Got water in it again and I couldn't get it working, so I cut it...

    If it was upside down for 20 minutes, and now it doesn't work, it's got water inside. It may be too late to save it. If drying it doesn't help, you might try putting some isopropyl alcohol in it,...

    You have to take off the handle bars and associated parts, reverse lever, etc. then remove the cowling.

    When you get to the display, remove the rubber plug on the back and try to dry it out inside...
