I'm buying a '98 Royal Star (standard not Venture or TD) and I noticed on the test ride that the trip odometer doesn't work. What I mean is that the TRIP button above the speedo (on tank) doesn't do anything when I push it. The Odometer works but does not switch over to Trip. Any ideas why or suggestions. I don't know if it is the button, a fuse or loose connection. I don't have the bike home yet to play around with it. BTW it is a 1300 with 18k and in otherwise good condition. P.S. I'm buying it as is from a HD dealer.

Thanks in advance

As is

Could they yes, but they're a HD dealer and sell everything else as is. They will inspect it but that won't cause it to fail, so I'm on my own.

Ok I figured out how to fix my trip odometer.
1. Remove 3 bolts holding on Chrome speedo cover.
2. Plug in Trip odo button wiring harness.
3. Test trip odo button.
4. Smile when it works.
5. Replace 3 bolts holding on Chrome speedo housing.
Done

Don't know why it was unplugged to begin with but it works now!

I love this bike!
