I finally got it fixed!!! I had to put film on the front and back of the glass on mine. 2003 450 ES. Took a few tries to get them aligned right so the numbers would show but finally got it and got it all back together. Thanks for the write up. The person I got the bike from said it barely had any hours or miles on it so I wanted to try to fix it first vs buying a new meter(plus it's way cheaper to fix it). I didn't have to use the plastic because the film I bought had adhesive already on it. I did discard the white film because it was cracking n crumbling. Only difference is the display is a little more "transparent" but still shows good. I did use a headlight cleaning kit on the lens because it was so bad you couldn't even see thru it but it came out pretty good.

Looks good. I did notice myn was a bit more transparent after looking at my brother in laws the other day.

2005 Foreman, 500FE. Can't get to the screen to remove it

The screen at the parts houses call this the screen assembly, Honda part #37201-HN2-B41. I want to replace the screen as the plastic has become faded, but I can't figure out how to get the cover off to get to the screen. Can anyone help?

Should be a bunch of Phillips head screws on the back. You have to remove it from the mounting bracket to get to them.

The screen on my trx was knackered (see the pics on my album) After putting the time & effort in with various grades of fine grit finishing paper, followed with cutting compound & finally a good quality resin polish the screen looked like new. Always satisfying to return an item to good condition with just a little effort put in
