Here we go again, yesterday I was out on the wing,parked up for a few hours in the sun ( Rare in the UK) when I set off again the speedo stuck at 40 but moved when tapped, I know there was a recall for this but assume due to time, age etc Honda wont do anything, so is there a solution that I can do my self? any suggestions will be appreciated

(and I know i wont be sunny that often here in the UK :waving:but very disconcerting when going through a speed camera not knowing what speed you are doing)

Regards Spav:cool:

What year was your GL1800 made? There was a problem with sticking speedo needles right up to about 2004 and the dealers were instructed by Honda to replace them.

One fix is to remove the speedo assembly and carefully glue the speedo face-plate down with super-glue. It seems the problem was the face plate buckeling up and hitting the indicator needle when in the bright sunlight. It has been reported that Honda will no longer replace the unit.... as they did several years ago. Just too old.
