gauge cluster memory question

When you shut off and restart your bike, does the trip mileage rest automatically on you?

I had problems a couple years back with the speedo not working correctly. I purchased a replacement circuit board for the cluster off a member and installed it. When I did, I noticed that the trip meter would reset every time I shut the bike off. I just put the original back in today as I fixed the speedo problem (not gauge cluster related and had fixed it last year) and even my original does not keep the trip meter without resetting back to zero.

Is this how they all are and I'm just imagining things?

you don't have power on the constant 12v to the dash for whatever reason.

or you have a loose battery connection

Ok, that would be my issue then. Is this fused? I know when I found the speedo issue, it was because of some corrosion on one of the terminals. I'm wondering if I may have popped a fuse or something during the original inspection/repair.

Think I found the page in the service manual with this info.

Blown 10A sub fuse which powers the Red/Green wire for the odometer.

Crossing my fingers. Thanks guys.

(it would figure I had the fairing off tonight and now it's back on. Why can't they put this stuff in a more accessible location)

I had the exact same thing with my bike, it was the horrible grey connector. Here is the thread showing it.

Actually that gray connector was the reason the speedometer initially didn't work. I cleaned it up with some QD contact cleaner and it worked like a champ. I must have popped the fuse when I cleaned it though. Pulled back the side panel and indeed it was the 10A fuse. New one in place and it works exactly as it should again!!!!
