Hey V owners. I just got my 2012 V 2 weeks ago. The first digit on the speedo, 8 when you turn the ignition on. On mine the top left side of the 8 is missing meaning the 2,4,6,8 and 9 have a part of the digit missing. I took it to the dealer who had the mechanic look at it. They came back with "oh we checked the other bike we have in stock and its the same so that's the way they are". I say" B.S." So true or false?. Anyone else with this issue or is it in fact they way they are. I don't ever expect to hit 200 km's an hour to need it, but for the $10 grand I spent on the bike I expect everything to be perfect. Feedback please.
I guess we've figured out by now that the missing segment of the display is not used to display a two (or a three). It probably saved Kawasaki a tenth of a cent to eliminate that segment but it all adds up to a significant savings in the end I suppose. Smart.
Terboy- Thanks for the replies. And yes my bad on the 2 digit, it is just 4,6,8 and 9 affected. " My bad" as well on the whole issue. I was just reading through my operating manual and it actual shows it missing in there. But, "how cheap is that!" on Kawasaki's part to leave it out. 'Go figure!". I love the bike anyway.
