Question about 2008 Buell Lightning XB12S

1 Answer

Speedometer occasionally stops working.

My speedometer occasionally likes to stop working on me. Its not the display cause it usually works fine but every once and a while it just sits at zero. Im guessing the speed sensor is going out or there is a bad wire. Has anyone heard of/seen this problem?

    My 900 Firebolt has now 7500 miles on it and for the first time since new, the speedo has stopped working! I will try taking sensor out first and cleaning it.

    Anybody got any other ideas please let me know.

    Thanks. Peter.

Clean the speed sensor connections and put electrical grease at the connections see if that helps.

Speedo stops working at times and when turning on ignition, the needles refrain from wiping across the clocks. then all of a sudden all works fine again. What to do?


Hi, William and the usual suspects are:
1. Contaminated speedometer sensor.
2. Corroded, broken or loose connector pins/sockets in the wire harness between the speedometer and the ECM and the sensor.

Usually when this happens, it's the speed sensor went bad.

Occasionally, the speedometer itself might have failed.

Check your speedometer cable, detach it from the speedometer elevate the front wheel and spin it notice the inner cable if it turns or not, if not replace the cable if it spins then replace the speedometer.

Speedometer/odometer stopped working. Removed ca...


Because the inner cable has to turn and flex as it spins, they can occasionally break, this can be normal wear and tear. other reasons can be rust from washing, incorrect installation when changing tyres, or the outer has been kinked or damaged. Repace inner and outer as a set, apply some light lubrication.
