Just want to give a big shout out to AKATV!
My speedometer display had gone haywire. The hours and miles we're showing 50,000+ miles and 35,000+ hours and my gear position indicator had disappeared. This was caused from the ATV sitting for years with a dead battery.
I got in touch with Ron (AKATV) and we discussed what was going on with my speedometer display.
He was positive that he could fix my problem.
Shipped my speedometer to him and he was able to reprogram it with a more realistic amount of hours/miles and he was able to get the gear position indicator back. He even texted my a short video showing it being fixed and working properly.
Had it back on the 450 in about a week and all is working as should now.
So if you are having issues with you display, contact AKATV and he we fix you up saving you lots of $$$ from having to buy a new display.
Thanks again Ron!!!

Speedometer Fix Works Well!

I came across this thread a few months ago (May 2019) and had a 450ES speedometer that had reverted to Km/h and filled out the hours and miles with all nines. I use my machine for to pull a small sprayer and knowing my speed was important--without converting to metric. Wrote to AKATV and he called me about how he fixes them. Took the board out (easy job), packed it up in a USPS padded envelope and sent to AKATV--I think it cost like $4.50 to mail it w/tracking. AKATV texted me as soon as he received it and must have went right to work on it. Then I got a video of it hooked up and working as is it should from him, then a picture of the return label and USPS tracking number. Arrived in great shape and works great.
A replacement was well north of $400.00 new and I likely would have had the same problem. When talking with AKATV he gave me some tips on what might cause the speedo to do what it did and sure enough he was right. Also offered some valuable tips for my machine which I really appreciated.
If you are thinking about saving yourself the cost of a new unit send him a PM here and you'll not only save money and have a working unit but you'll talk to a guy that knows his stuff and is very friendly and fun to talk with. I couldn't be happier. If you want to talk to me about my experience more in detail, send me a PM and I'll send you my number and we can talk.

Thanks to AKATV for helping me out---I really appreciated it.
