Instrument panel bulb replacement on a VTR250 (07 model)

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by I Adore Vic, Dec 12, 2008.

  1. Hey all. The bulb's died in my speedo- as a result I can't see how slow I'm going at night and am relying on the revs to tell me what I'm doing.

    Anyway, I've got a copy of a VTR250 service manual but it's for an earlier model VTR250 and the instrument panel on that is different to the instrument panel on mine.

    What I want to know is how in the hell do I undo everything to put a new bulb in?

    I've undone the screws under each side and the middle of the panel compartment, and that's loosene things up a bit, but still cant get the cover/base apart. If it's the base I'm taking out, then I'm pretty sure I need to disconnect the speedo cable, but what else is undone/disconnected etc?


    Anyone know how to get in there to do this??

    Any help appreciated.
