    1. Update...no further occurrence, but my speedo was delayed is firing up yesterday when we left Tucson in a chill. After a half hour or so, it flicked on. Interestingly, it did not register the odo miles. when we fueled up, my reading was less than the rest of them.Tomorrow is going to be cold (hi 30's), so I'll have an update.

    Absolutely -- once that EHC starts to react to cold - its a slippery slope.
    If the speedo started not reading might be time to consider a Dakota Digital.
    That's how one of my speedo's failed -- Had a cold day coming home from Maryland and would be off, ride a bit it would come on, stop for lunch etc would go off, would come on randomly going down the road.

    I've had a series of speedp's between my 2 k-9's and my BMC and I must say that the Dakota Digital has been the best and most reliable (2 of them with NO problems at all)

    Mine was the speedo, then the lights, then the turn signals. We had good days and bad. It's like riding down a gravel road. Your happy your riding but can't wait to get back on stable ground. Replace the EHC because it's not a matter of IF now, it's a matter of when it's going to leave you stranded! Call and order a RIP
