I did the polarization and when you turn the cluster on the numbers look all scrambled unless you move your head to the right spot.

i rotated it to the blackest part before i put it on.

i also thing i wrecked the lcd for my fuel gauge. i didnt see the little nub on the bottom and knicked it with my exacto blade.

note: do not get drunk before attempting to work on tiny parts.

Ok false alarm.
I hit the nub on the lcd with the blade by accident but its still ok. The problem was i put the silicone connector thing in the wrong way on the fuel gauge. flipped it and everything works now.








Ill update with more after i do the LEDs. probably not gonna get to it this weekend

Looking good, man. Haha, I got lucky when reinserting the silicone tabs, because I wasn't really paying attention to which direction I was putting them in, but mine displayed correctly the first time.

So I got through the LED swap today.
Fairly easy once I figured out the best way to get them off and soldered back on.

Made sure to look at which way the corner was cut on them. Had an issue with the last one I did on the fuel gauge but took it off, put a new one on and it worked perfect.



Best pic I could get with my phone, looks kind of orange but its red/white.

Just like with the stock display, you won't see the LEDs in the sun. It's just going to look like there's no back lighting. The only difference is going to be that the LCD colors are inverted.

How long do you think it took you to do this from start to finish?

Probably around an hour, taking my time. That's assuming you're comfortable removing/installing the fairings and display. I'd budget for closer to 3 hours if it's your first time taking the bike apart.

Thanks for the vid, did mine on the weekend, although want to re-do a few bits. Missed one LED and another not aligned a well as I'd like.

Main problem I had was with the polarising film, I managed to get it to black out the fuel gauge just fine, but the best I could get on the other seems quite translucent, I've ordered a second sheet of polarising film as I ran out. Does anyone know if I can double it up or should I just have another go with a fresh sheet?

Edit: Suss'ed it. When placing the film on I realised that the protective layer of plastic on the adhesive side was completely screwing with the polarising effect, so the only way to do it was with the protective layer removed.

I know this thread has been dead for a while but I'm wondering if anyone knows...
What would happen if you put the polarized screen on the outside of the speedo, instead of inside it? This is my favorite mod(besides projector retrofit) but I'm worried about destroying the stock speedo!

It won't do anything to the display. If you don't have the time or desire to do this mod we can perform it for you. TripageLED.com

We can also install a gear indicator inside the cluster to give you a factory look.
