sticky trip meter button fix

seen in another thread somewhere here that guys where having troubles with these, and trying to get new ones under warranty, and one guy told how he fixed it but had no pics.

mine was doing it also, so i took it apart and sprayed in some of this cleaner like he mentioned where i'm pointing with a pencil, and blew it out with canned air.

the buttons are working perfect again.

real easy fix.

reset

So my tripometer reset for no reason the other day. Could this problem with the button have caused this as well?

Ah hah! You have one of the Versys that has evil spirits living in it. I've hear about them, but haven't come across one just yet.
