Do you have a "GPS" Unit? You could always use that to determine your speed. (Just a thought)




I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

I jacked the bike up to where there was just a slight drag of friction with the tire to the ground. I did not have to completely remove the wheel, there is enough room to replace the speedo sensor if that is all you have to do.

Here is what the sensor looks like (new). The 4 tabs you see are what breaks off and it will no longer catch the tabs that are part of the hub. Thus it won't spin and will not give you a speed indication.


Next is to remove the pinch bolt, the axle, and spacer.



(facing the bike from the front) Lean the wheel to the right, and you can pull the speedo sensor from the hub. Remove the old broken sensor, grease up the new one. I used the 60 moly grease. And then carefully put the new sensor in.



When mounting the sensor back to the hub, make sure that the tabs are going between the tabs that are part of the hub. This is where most are broken because when folks replace the wheel they do not pay attention to where the tabs are oriented in relationship to the hub tabs. You also want to make sure the locking slot on the back of the speedo housing (fork side) is secured to the small post on the fork.

With that done it's pretty much reverse order to get the wheel back together. Slide the wheel back to the right, put the spacer in, put your axle back in and torque to recommended specs ( I think it's 48 ft/lbs). The manual then recommends that you excersize the front forks before tightening the pinch bolt. I dropped the bike back on the ground and compressed the forks by pushing down on the handlebars. Then replace the pinch bolt and tighten to recommended specs ( I think it's 24 ft/lbs). Go for a test ride, unless you had maintenance hops during the procedure.

Hope this helps someone.
Is their a part number or name for this so that I can order it online?

just fixed mine, worked and went just as you said. No seal that I found though. Could not find the part on line for the seal as well. you would think that they would make something a little stronger for something that is moving as much as this part is.

Just ordered the sensor and seal today. Speedo stopped working a week after I got the bike. This will be the first thing I have to do. Hopefully its not to difficult.

My speedo went south yesterday. No speed, no miles, just the clock working so I am suspecting my issue is the topic of this thread.

I am far from a mechanic but I think I can replace this magnet on my own. My question is about what I colored in red. How do I torque and measure the torque? Don't laugh guys, I seriously don't know what the term means and I have to get my bike repaired, heading for the Smokies on the 27th.

Thanks!

Borrow a torque wrench from someone/shop that is in foot pounds and has the 48# in the mid range.
Also don't drop it or bounce the wrench when tightening....use a steady pressure till it goes "click" or the proper amount is indicated.
