Reset button on the instrument gauge

Hey guys, I'm sure im not the only one who resets there trip everytime they get fuel but today when i tried to fill up i couldnt reset it...after looking at it for a little while it seems like the hard piece thats inside that makes the click noise when you push it down some how dissappeared....I have no freaking idea what the deal is but i cant push my reset button down...I could live without the trip working...but my clock cant be reset now either....anybody had this happen before, or am i going to have to pull it apart and see what the deal is....thanks

the little plastic button inside fell out. it's a common occurance. take the cluster apart and glue the plastic button back into the rubber peice.

This is common. Do what Ceph said if you didnt already. Just a dab of super glue will cure it.

What happened was: You gauge had been out under the sun to long that it causes the cover to arch/buckle up and ended up making the plastic piece went out of place.

Remedy: like ceph said
Prevention: cover your gauge with cloth or something when parked outside, dunno about when riding though

hope that helps
