    A bit harsh! I prefer the customisability of the TFT and I do prefer digital to analogue speedos but I find the R1200R instruments compact, clear and easy to read.

    My money's on a bent yoke tip contacting the set lever preventing it from moving to its full extent. Either bend it straight (can be difficult) or replace it (a lot easier).
