    '08 Speedometer Glitch

    I went on a long ride this weekend, which is 3.5 hrs going there the first day and the same coming back.

    About 45 mins into the ride, I'm going about 40 mph consistently and all of sudden my speedometer is reading 12, 13 mph??? Also, boost drops to like 6 or 7. I know there's nothing wrong with anything because the rpms are the same and the performance is the same.

    This happened to two other ultras that were riding at the exact same time...

    Anyone else have any problems with this? And what could cause it?

    sounds like you were in a time space continum. All three at the same time? Maybe ufo's under the water?

    I know, it sounds crazy...does it have something to do with the speedomter on the back?

    After I gassed up, the speedometer read correctly but after a while it started reading 12, 13mph again when I'm really going around 40mph. Same thing with the other two.

    sounds like dodgy monkeys in the dash, anythink digi has a million tranistors, pick one. will be hard to fault find without a second unit to swap too. if the boost didnt drop as well i would think dreamometer , sounds like warranty either way.

    sounds like a earth/connection inthe circuit,
    do all the normal check

    ie battry terminals clean and tight
    service every plug you can find, ( by that I mean pull apart use contact cleaner, recoat with lube, see how it goes)

    if your boat still performs well
    its just a electric display drama

    joys of water and electrics sounds like
