The 96 and 97 models were most susceptible to the issues. Some would run fast, some would blank out completely, and some wouldn't completely shut off when the bike would be turned off. The common denominator is dampness or high humidity. Normally after driving for a few miles, the circuit board will dry out and return to normal functioning so that is the quick fix, ride it till it dries out. The fix I posted above is a lot more in depth. If you decide to go with the full fix, it would be a good time to change the dash bulbs, possibly think about going with LED's, change the speakers if you wish, and make sure toclean all the connectors behind the dash and seal with dialectric grease.
