disassembling cleianng behind speedometer lcd... 05 r6s

so the gauge cluster on my r6 leaked some water. there was some light corrosion on one of the connector pins, the buttons and under the lcd panel.

there is a plastic cover over the whole board and i have to either remove the needle or straighten the pins and desolder the servo to remove the housing. then there is the lcd panel to remove and clean behind.

the start of this is a .8 amp short thats draining my batteria. such is the life. speedo clusters are expensive on ebay and i wanna retain original miles.

Sounds like the cluster might not have been the only problem. You may be missing a seal on the wire harness connector. Either that, or it's damaged. There should also be a peel-back or flip-back rubber boot over the back of that wire harness connector.

I have an 08 R6S and the cover replacement was as simple as getting the replacement...

of the appropriate diameter)
, unplugging the harness, unscrewing the cluster from the fairing stay, removing the phillips screws from the back of the cluster, dividing it, transferring the internals to the replacement case, and reassembling.

Of course, make sure that you get a good cover with a good seal. Make them pay return shipping if it's a garbage product.

As far as the corrosion on the connector pin, use a straight pin or safety pin or unfolded paper-clip, to *ggeennttllyy* scrape away the top layer of corrosion using absolute minimal pressure. Putting a little silicon spray lubricant on there might help. Prior to reassembly, slather that plug and rubber seal with plenty of dielectric grease. That'll help seal out moisture.

Oh, and it may be necessary to change how you store your 'cycle. If that cluster has breather holes, (like headlamps,) it being stored under a hot steamy cover will create water and corrosion issues, regardless of what is done to help protect the beast.

This was a very cheap operation; both expense and time wise.
