speedometer stopped working...

  1. speedometer stopped working... 250 bandit

    disregard... problem identified.

  2. Feel free to share your experience so that others may learn.
  3. He started moving & the speedo started working again... :p
  4. borken speedo cable... now replaced and working.

    old one was full of water! odometer not turning was the giveaway
  5. Hmmm, I might be mistaken but didn't you say the odo WAS moving in the OP before the edit? That's what had me stumped...
  6. i hope you oil up your new cable,,if not it wont last long,,, also oil up your clutch cable while your at it ...and then spray all your electrics with wd40. check the water level in your battery,,do this every few weeks .. when was the last time you looked at your spark plugs. and what about checking the oil level???.all these things need to be looked at
  7. I think I only glanced at it once when it happened and the vibrations made me think the odo was turning...

    and I just changed the oil and filter a couple of days ago.
    20k service coming up, get the plugs and valves checked then... cheers

    speedo cable lubed up too
