    Just a quick note to relay my experience with my Tripmaster repair. My 2002-reg RD07A Tripmaster started to show "ghost" characters. See the image below. As well as the true LCD character displayed I was also seeing the remaining elements of the character in the display - very confusing and difficult to distinguish, particularly in certain light conditions. A search of the XRV.org forum revealed that Joerg Hau in Switzerland may be able to help. You can definitely find Joerg's details with a search there. I sent the unit off to him; he restored it to full health on the same day he received it and sent it back to me promptly (all at a very reasonable cost, and done and dusted within 14 days; Christmas included). I also sent his details to my Africa Twin mate up in Cumbria; exactly the same excellent service.
    Happy New Year to all,
    Flyingcharlie

    Mine is just not reading anything but giving me the time. What sort of cost are we looking at if you don't mind me asking.

    Hi MikeTheBike. Sorry for delay in replying - just spotted the thread! I think the cost was about £70 including return carriage and insurance. I thought this was excellent value considering the work involved and the quick turnaround. Incidentally I see from the XRV.org forum that you're from around Carlisle (I think). That's kinda my home town; lived around there and worked at "Kangols" for nearly 20 years. Now in exile in Bedfordshire; better weather but distinct lack of mountains!
