07 1200GT instrument LCD dead

Hi All, Had my GT for a couple of years here in Australia, only 16000ks. Instrument LCD died last week. All faults etc checked with GS911 and with the dealer unit. No communication faults with Kombi etc.All warnings, Speedo and Tacho are normal. Just multifunction display is dead.
New unit is $2400 from Germany. Can't seem to source the screen separately even tho it would be an easy change. Any thoughts on a source for the screen would be appreciated.

I have one off my 06 K12R I'm not using. But it's a different instrument panel.

'06 K1200R- in pieces
'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda

$2400 (AUD) for the LCD? Ouch! And I thought $500 (USD) for a plastic fuel pump plate was bad enough.

Don't know if it will help, but Max BMW in the States show the instrument cluster for around $1350 (USD) or so here. I know BMW has gone up a bit in price of late though, but if you can get it from Max BMW you still are ahead than what you pay there - by a lot (~$800 AUD)!

Maybe some loose or dirty connection someplace?

Good luck on your quest to keep the BMW on the road.

Well here in the states I would be talking to people like regional/zone managers about getting some help from BMW in replacement costs. I'm surprised the dealer hasn't suggested this or said that they will talk to them. Really just 3 months out of warranty is a bit hard to take for this type of failure and expense.

Good Idea,,, Had a chat to BMW here in Adelaide and they have decided to cover the total cost of the inst cluster.. I will just be up for the labour. Another good reason to buy a good quality bike with backup!!!
