1100 STX Display Issue
When I bought my '98 1100 STX, they guy told me there was something screwy with the display. He said it would work for 10 minutes or so, then shut off. The ski would still run, just no display.
I haven't had a chance to put it in the water since I bought it (all that will change the 18th) but have noticed issues with the display. If it's warm or in direct sunlight it seems to work fine. When it cools off, the display starts to go away (dimming, segmenting, etc).
Is there a fix for this, or is the fix replacing the display?

Remove the rubber seal on the back and let it dry out for a couple of days. You might try to warm it with a hair dryer. Test it to see if it works. If so, put it back together and put sealant around the plug and where the wires pass through.
Those rubber plugs dry out and leak when they get old. Good luck, displays are expensive. Ebay is a good place to get a replacement.

Thanks Steve, I'll give that a shot.
Dumb question though, how do they come out? I've checked it out and I can't see how to get to the back of it.

It's a pain, you have to remove the shroud over the base of the handlebars. Remove the storage bin, then there is a white plastic air intake tube that has to come out. Shroud mounting screws on the front, some in the back (I think you have to go through the glove box). I can't remember if the shroud will lift up enough or not. I'm pretty sure you have to take the pad off the handlebars, but I can't remember if the bars have to come off or not.
