speedo angels screen protector.

Hi Mate. I live in England and fitted the speedo screen protector. Great value and it does stop a lot of glare. Overall I was very pleased with it. Cheers

That's odd, I looked at mine and the screen position is fixed, even if it was possible to move then it would only move about 2 mm.


Changing the subject slightly, does anyone else have trouble with the screen constantly switching from day mode to night mode and back to day mode. Even on a 25C sunny day the screen will switch to night mode going through shade from an overhanging tree, so then I come out of the shaded area and can't read the screen because it is still in night mode.


Seems to switch to night mode really quickly and take ages to switch back to day mode.

Yes, mine does that. Not sure if there's a fix though.

They all do this, you are correct its a bit too sensitive to "low" light and the delay is a bit to long to return to daylight

The whole display can be moved up and down the degree of movement depends upon handle bar position and cables

It bugged me for awhile in the beginning, but got used to it after a few days, barely notice it anymore.
Spend most of the time looking ahead rather than down at the dash to be honest
Mullasci and Geoff like this.

Observation is the greatest source of wisdom.
