F650GS instrument cluster PCB replacement

I need to replace (I think) the instrument cluster PCB on my 07 F650GS. It's showing 5 dashes on the odometer, and the trip meter resets every time I turn the bike off.

Not a common problem, but I've found a few references on the net. I think replacement is the only solution left.

What I'm concerned about - what will my odometer show if I install a used replacement? Will it show my actual mileage, or will it show the mileage of the bike it came off?

The distance is stored in non-volatile RAM in the instrument cluster itself, so the new cluster will display the mileage from the donor machine.

A new cluster will display zero mileage.

DAMHIK...

There's a couple of folk about who are (possibly) able to repair a cluster, depending on the fault. Some faults are simple bad solder joints or PCB damage (chaffing etc.).

There are a couple of known faults which occur on the dash assembly, resolving them is not always for the feint hearted.
I have repaired both single and dual spark dash assemblies but I am sure there will be some which are not repairable
