When i switch on my Burger 650,the digital display shows all its functions before showing normal running.Recently i have noticed that the speedometer numbers are not 888.88 as you would expect for that first display but have one section of line missing on the first figure 8.funny i can`t say that i have noticed it before now.Has anyone else noticed it or is it just my display playing up?.Is it a common fault?,I would appreciate comments!.To all you die hard fanatics of the burger 650,i recently bought a new Honda CBF600 NEW 2004 MODEL,not having space for more than one motorcycle at a time (smaller properties in the UK),i only had it 6 weeks but missed the Burger 650 so much i swapped it back.Got fed up with gear changing all the time and getting cold. :?

Can't say I've noticed. I can't check now either as the bike is in storage with no battery in it to check. Hope someone else steps up. Welcome back to the Burgman .

OK, I fell for it too and I also have the left hand top stroke missing from mine. I'm not going to lose sleep over it, though.

Cheers,

Bob

I think that noise you hear is the fuel injection pump pressurizing. So, I usually just wait a couple of seconds until the flashing and electronic clatter stop, and then I hit the starter button. You are right that young kids are wow'ed by the IPL routine - but I too could do without it.

Funny though. My V-Strom has conventional needle gauges. But when you turn the key on, the needles swing back and forth wildly a few times while the fuel pump activates. I think Suzuki is trying to distract you from punching the starter button until all systems are fully ready.

Thanks to all you guys for your feed back,it now seems clear to me that Suzuki intended to leave out that top right segment for reasons only they know.My bike is now just out of its warranty and was one of the earliest that was registered in this country,September 2002.I don,t mind the initial display start up myself.I,m sure it would be pretty expensive to repair if any part of the electronics/injection systems failed,Suzuki seem to have got there sums right so far. :)

OK, darn it. You guys made me go check mine. Top left bar is missing. I'll bet that is because it isn't needed. I guess they figure we are not going to go over 400 miles per hour. :?
Impressive that they think you might go over 199...
Uh, no, but they know many of us will go 90, or 39, or 100... :roll:
