GL1500 Time Keeps Changing - Any Advice Please??

Right. You may have seen from another post of mine that I have recently changed the LCD screen on my GL1500 for a new one supplied by Tanin Autoelectronix. Initially I had an issue with this and the 'bulb test' sequence not working but discovered that there was a fault with the suspension increase / decrease switch, which I have now disconnected for the time being.

Everything seemed to be working as it should so I reassembled the dash back into the bike. I have now discovered, to my extreme annoyance, that the time keeps changing unexpectedly. Not a major problem but something I just didn't expect.

Any ideas anyone?

Probably there is a loose, corroded or bad cantact/wire somewhere on the circuit.
And that might be the previous problem as well.

Are your motorcycles purchased with known electrical problems or do they appear after ownership?

Einstein will tell you that time will slow down as you approach the speed of light. Maybe keep it to the speed limit for a while.

Einstein will not tell you anything. He's dead. However, if you head over to Mozart's grave, you may hear him decomposing........

Libraries are full of stuff I don\'t know.

Don't really understand why you asked this question, but I can tell you that I didn't know about the issue with the clock has I couldn't read the LCD screen prior to it's replacement.

DBohrer. I did check this the other day, when I had the initial issue with a blank LCD screen, and intend to test it again today, if the weather will allow? Other than that, I was going to dismantle the whole thing again and clean the LCD contacts as detailed in the other post. Very annoying after reassembly, but I have to no other option if the backup fuse is okay
