Get yer motor running ……..

Aprilia Caponord ETV1000 Rally-Raid dashboard stepper-motorNo, not the mighty V990 Rotax, more the tidily-tiny stepper motor that runs the speedometer and tachometer. An unobtrusive little thing with a hefty replacement price tag of between £30-£50 each.

The B-0410-116-530 stepper motor is also used in a variety of cars from Audi, Fiat, Renault and Citroen. Anyway, I had a duff one on a board and decided to remove it and poke/prod/measure its internals for digital posterity. Here’s a couple of Aprilia Caponord ETV1000 Rally-Raid dashboard stepper motor -sectionimages of the little darling. I’ll be adding a Dashboard page shortly with lots more info on the motor and the circuit board along with plenty of ‘how to’ tips to hopefully save you a few bob on repairs by doing it yourself and avoiding the pitfalls that leave you with an expensive paper-weight!

  1. HI Abruzzo,I’ve got one question.When you pull the stepper motor from dashboard,those 4 wires have to stay in dashboard or they come out with motor?Thx,Michal

  2. Hi Michal, Yes those 4 long legs are part of the stepper motor assembly, so they have to come out of the board with the motor. Use a Chip-Quik kit – makes the job very easy. Cheers KarlB
