Intermittent speedo failure

A couple weeks ago I noticed my speedometer had not budged off of zero during my daily commute to work. On the ride home I was relieved to see it working properly again. Happened again a couple days latter. Pulled the front wheel and verified the Speedo drive looked OK. I noticed the issue occurred on nights I elected not to hook up the charger. A check of the battery revealed leakage and corrosion. Bingo.A new lithium Shoai battery has curred the problem. I will report any issues with the Shoai.

If you update the map in the ECM with TuneEcu your problem will be permanently resolved - this was a troublesome 'feature' that was subsequently disabled in later versions of the map
