Question about 2008 Buell Lightning CityX XB9SX

1 Answer

Speedometer problem Hi' I have an 05 city which is having some issues with the speedometer. When starting up the bike in the morning you usually get the needles flick round the gage in there start up procedure. This always works with the revs but the speedo intermittently doesn’t do this.  It takes a few mile for the speedo to register but it always starts working at some point. Because its an intermittent problem Im finding it hard to get fixed.

Speed sensor is what it sounds like.  Could be as easy as taking it out and cleaning it off.  Could be a bad sensor itself or could be the worst thing and it be in the cluster.  At least that will get you started that happens all the time on the Harleys and most of the time its something to do with the sensor.,,

I have a 96 Kawasaki Vulcan vn800 classic my speedometer stopped working, the lighting (neutral and high beam) still works, my mileage & trip counter don't roll and the actual speedometer doesn't work


I dont know that specific motorcycle but I solve a similar issue on the suzuki same size and class... Usually the speed sensor on the front wheel breaks or the parts that transfer the rotation to the cable leading up to the speedometer are worn or broken. This seems common on some of the newer bikes. I would start looking there. You should find a good supply of replacement parts reasonable on Ebay

BIKE WON'T START


I have heard that the engine control module is built into the speedometer assy and this component has failed. This same issue happened with my friends Harley this past summer. Thats what they said fixed his bike. Also he was told that this Speedometer assy was outsourced for building to another company, who outsourced it to a Chinese company. He is very upset over what he was told about his speedometer/computer head. Under warranty?
