Honda 919 speedometer and moisture.

Some of you might remember but my speedometer isn't working. I haven't really dug into it and tested any wires but I do want to say something interesting happens. Mornings with a lot moisture in the air causes the speedo to work until I hit the highway and/or the bike is warm and after a good wash the speedo will work as well..but other than that its always dead.. Does the water increase something or cause a connection to be made that isn't? Where would be the most affected place to look that this could happen.

Water is making the connection, probably at one of the plugs in the headlight housing. Check them for corrosion and add some dielectric grease to them.

+1, if that doesn't fix the problem, check out the plug to the gauge. If still no go, then crack open the gauge and look at the board, make sure all the connections are 100%.

The problem with dielectric grease is that it's more of an insulator then a conductor. It's to stop corrosion. I'd try to find the problem and change the connectors if anything.

Check Vickie's rear end for a condom. I think she got abused.

True, if there is corrosion it would need to be addressed.
