Replacing the trip odometer in a
K bike instrument cluster is a fairly easy DIY task.
Details on how to remove the
instrument cluster from the various K models can be found at
the following link:
1 - Place the instrument cluster
upside down on a towel to protect it and then remove all of
the screws around the perimeter of the backplate. Remove the
2 - Undo these six Phillips
3 - Remove the two screws that
hold the speedometer sensor connector in (not there on early
bikes) and then pull out the connector.
4 - Remove the screw that holds
the speedometer subassembly to the internal frame of the
instrument cluster - lower right hand corner in picture
5 - Pull the trip odometer knob
part way out, turn the cluster over and gently shake the
"guts" out. Be very careful with the guts. The speedo
and tach needles are very delicate and will bend if you look
at them crossways.
The speedometer side subassembly
should lift up and separate from the rest of the guts.
6 - Remove the two screws under
the bottom that are holding the trip odometer in and then it
comes right out.
7 - Once you've replaced the trip
odometer, put the speedometer subassembly back with the
guts. With the trip odometer knob pulled part way out, put
the housing over the guts, flip everything back over so that
the faceplates are pointing down and then put everything
