Hey there. My 2004 litre Strom seems to have a sticky speedo pointer. When turning on the ignition, sometimes both pointers do their little dance and sometimes it's just the tach needle only. In those cases the speedo will not indicate speed until you have ridden maybe fifty feet and then it unsticks itself with a vengance. After that it works OK. The sticking is becoming more frequent.
Is this common? Sounds to me like a warranty replacement may be in order. Any feedback? Many thanks.
