Well finnaly got the reflash done after almost 7 years. I called up the dealership I got my bike from just to make sure they were up to speed. Of course they werent. The guy was a real ass, nice at first though. said yeah no problem whats the vin #. I gave it to him then he couldnt find anything for my bike in the computer as its not a saftey recall. So I tell him its a service bullitin and the just would not listen. So we argued for a couple a minutes and he just kept telling me theres nothing wrong with my bike slitley laughing under his breath like Im some sort of dumb .

So I call the dealership by my house, tell him I need a download from a service bullitin. He says whats the bullitin and asks me to hold. Comes back on and says it shouldnt be a problem, he just need to contact the factory to make sure he could still get a good will authorization and said hed call me back. 5 minutes later he calls me back says no problem, come in sometime tomorrow, it should only take about 20 min. Long story short (too late) 20 min and zero charge I was out of there.

Speedometer was dead on now. My bike has always run good and its probably in my head but it seems to run even better now.

For those of you that the dealer claims there is a charge for this, its B.S. unless they call the factory and you are denied a good will authorization.

No, it applies to the 04's and early 05's

The part number is corect and does not need a reflash if it's 32478-04A, 32622-04A or the last letter is b or c.

My 04 1200C has always exhibited signs of having the ICM that needs to be flashed, speedo off by 5mph or more at higher speed. The number of the ICM is without the A on the end. Called dealership and they say by VIN my bike doesn't show need for anything, but when I told them of the date, they said they simply may not have the software to upgrade it anymore, but also implying that since their computer doesn't show the need for it, they couldn't do anything. But the guy did say to bring the service bulletin in and they'd look into it. My question is this: I'm having all sorts of speedo issues doing wacky things: works, doesn't, works, doesn't, jumps by 15-30mph, odometer reads slow sometimes. This could be a separate issue from the ICM needing its thing.

Do I do try to get the ICM reflash done first and then see about the speedo issue, or the other way around?

pdedse - I would get the ICM reflashed cause it should be done( it dosent work like it should if it dosent have the reflash). Will it cure your problems... maybe maybe not but I would get it done anyways.

As far as the dealer mine said the same thing and swore i didnt need a reflash cause it didn't show up with my vin. I called another dealer closer to the house and gave him the service bullitin # and he looked it up right away and just had to call the factory for a good will authorization, called me back 5 mins. later and schedualed it for the next day. If there gonna give you the run around like that, I would just call someone else you dont need that kinda of hassel from those idiots. Also besides the speedo I feel like my bike runs better sence the reflash.

P.S. They should defentely have the software and if not, another good reason to blow them off. you should also be able to give them the bullitin # over the phone, thats what they have computers for. They were probably just too lazy to look it up.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, he seemed to think I knew not of which I speak, but once I told him I had the service bulletin in my hand, then he said bring it in and they would look. I'll give them a shot tomorrow and see what can be done.

I just had my 04 Custom reflashed at the dealership.

I printed out the bulletin from the web. The service guy had never heard of this before, but said it looked legit. Everything was done in about 20 minutes.

Service guy actually said the original bulletin has been superseded by a new flash. The "A" part number is now superseded by a "B" part number.

I took my seat off, and they didn't change the part number label at all.

It may be all in my head, but I feel like my bike is zippier and the speedometer is more accurate. I always knew my speedo was ~5-10mph off. Now it seems a lot more accurate. Could all be in my head though.

If anyone hasn't done this yet, I would recommend it. Pretty painless.
