rdisom Sorry to drag this topic back up, but I recently had my speedo start bouncing. Over about a week, it gradually got worse until it was registering 10 mph while riding at freeway speeds. I searched the forum and ended up at this post. I haven't had a tire changed for almost 6,000 miles, so it wasn't recent damage. I decided to tear it down and inspect the sensor. I found the rotor intact and everything looked good. I noticed that the magnet portion turned independent of the plastic piece with the tabs. I ordered a new rotor, thanks to the good people here. I then coated the seam with JB Weld and re-assembled the front wheel. It seems to be working fine now. Hopefully this holds, as I won't have the new part for about a week and I won't have time to install it for at least a week after that. I just couldn't stand to ride without a speedometer and odometer.

Sirdrinksalot As far as lubing up the sensor should it be lathered up like a bearing in a car axel? Like slathered on nice and thick? I took my bike to the speakership rode about 1000 miles and bam my speedo isn't working. Pretty sure I narrowed it down to the speedo sensor all the other connections look nice and tight.

Correct and the bigger end goes toward the wheel

Makes no sense!

Show us a picture.

t-man403 Sorry.
I'm assuming you do not have a torque wrench and you worried about crushing the sensor. The axle has spacers that will prevent that from happening.
To be safe I'd check with your local auto parts store as some will let you sign out a wrench. torque specs - 47ft lbs for the Axel, 24ft lbs for the pinch bolt
