You fried the Digi Dash... Yama recommends that you disco the battery any time you charge it. We had a few customers have the problem, they may warranty it.

Yup... Have gotten call from several folks on this issue... Some guys are lucky and some are not... My old 04 never had this issue...


Looks like 07/08 model years mainly.

My battery died (1.6V) and I replaced it without a problem w the digi-dash. I also regularly use a trickle charger.

I thought I saw a smoking deal on the custom replacement dash from one of the vendors (rigid industries) recently, you might consider that instead of the stock replacement.

A lot of battery chargers have a much less than desirable rectifier circuit in them.

The rectifier changes the AC (alternating current) voltage that comes out of the line transformer secondary into DC (direct current). A lot of el cheapo units have only one diode in them, which will NOT eliminate all of the AC. This doesn't affect most auto or motorcycle batteries, so it's not normally a problem, but a sensitive device like an electronic dash display is quite a different story. You could take the charger apart and put in a full wave bridge rectifier (4 diodes), but there's a good chance that this will lower the output voltage, and then the damn thing won't charge a battery anymore. The best solution is to do like someone mentioned - completely disconnect the battery from the Rhino BEFORE you start charging it. Sure beats buying a new LCD instrument cluster.
