Wonder Wheel problems

Anyone had trouble with the Wonder Wheel? Bike is 3,000 kms old (2 1/2 months)

Mine intermittently won't do anything (spins & clicks OK) with the Nav V & when that happens, the Nav doesn't shut down when you turn the key off as well.

The Nav V is working OK if you just use it manually.

I have a GSW as well and the Nav V (same unit - I swap it from bike to bike) is behaving itself as it should on that.

Also seen on another forum that the '18 models are having an issue with the instrument cluster. If your clock is displaying 0, there is a service bulletin out to change the cluster. Quite a wait though apparently.

Re: Wonder Wheel problems

Sounds like a software glitch. Iíd have it checked out at the dealer, video what itís doing so you can show them so they donít just say they canít replicate the problem

Re: Wonder Wheel problems

Your switch gear may be failing, this was a common problem with the K13S bikes but I hadn't heard what other bikes suffer the same issue. Yesterday the wonder wheel along with all the other controls on my K16GTL ceased operating so I now have to get the bike up to the shop so they can look at it.
