    Okay. Did you have a question about it? The obvious solution would seem to be get that bolt loose, are you asking how to do that?

My speedometer is not working. when i unscrew it from the front wheel, and manually spin it the speedometer works but ive already changed the speedo on the front wheel? what could be wrong??


when you spin the front wheel with the cable removed, does the spindle turn in the speedo drive?
If not:
1) Check that drive is fitted correctly, often there is a washer or spacer that if omitted can stop the drive from working
2) try another drive unit in the wheel.
I think that option 1 is most likely

Speedometer not working


Is the speedo electronic or cable operated? If cable operated there are a number of things to check. Firstly remove speedo cable from back off guage. Remove speedo cable from speedo drive generally front wheel. Check that the inner is still one piece, by spinning. If that is good you need to check if your speedo drive is functional. Screw cable back to drive, lift front wheel and check if cable inner is turning, if it is you may need a new speedo. (spring worn like my old Triumph.

you need to raise front wheel from ground with hoist or stand
remove brake calliper bolts and then twist callipers on disc to push pads back so that you can remove callipers.
loosen pinch bolts on one fork leg then undo axle nut ( large allan bolt) loosen other pinch bolts on other leg and remove axle and spacers/speedo drive and the wheel. take note where spacers go and also make sure to line up speedo drive tangs correctly when refitting wheel in reverse order to taking apart.

How do i remove my front wheel on my zzr250


First off you should remove the front caliper, there are two bolts holding that on the lower fork leg, once that is removed that you can loosen the axle and slide the axle out.

Pay close attention to the spacers and the speedo drive when you remove the axle so that you install everything proper when you put it back together.

Also you'll notice that the speedo drive only goes in one way, there are two tangs that need to be lined up on the receiver part of the hub, those have to slip into each other, if not you will damage your speedo drive.

Also before you start make sure you have something to hold the bike up since you will be pulling the front wheel out of it.

Torque the axle nut to 65 ft-lb
Torque the caliper bolts to 24 ft-lb

The speedo on my 1992 xr250r doesnt work, cable and speedo r fine, how do i remove and check the part of the speedo that is mounted on the front wheel


First, remove the lower end of the speedo cable from the speedo gear box on the front axle. Then, lift the front wheel off the ground and remove the wheel. To remove the speedo-drive gear box, unscrew the axle nut that holds it in place. With the speedo-drive removed, inspect the two flanges that fit into the slots on the wheel hub, making sure they haven't gotten bent - or sheared off. When you turn flange on the speedo-drive, it should turn freely and you should be able to see the speedo cable drive-blade spinning. If not, then you will need to replace the whole unit because the worm gear inside has become excessively worn.

The speedometer n my 1999 Sportster 1200 has stopped registering. How do I fix it?


This depends on whether it is an electronic speedo or a mechanical speedo.
The electric speedo has a sensor near the rear of the engine. Sometimes a very small piece of metal will get stuck on the end of the sensor and the speedo will stop working. Remove the bolt holding the sensor into the engine case and carefully pull the sensor out. Wipe it off and reinstall it. If the speedo still does not work, it's probably something in the speedo itself.

On a mechanical speedo, a cable from the front wheel drives the speedo. The cable or the speedo drive unit may be bad. To check the cable and drive, lift the bike off the ground, disconnect the cable from the rear of the speedo. Turn the front wheel and see if the cable is turning. If it is, it's probably alright. I'd still pull the cable out of it's housing and lubricate it with some grease. If the cable is turning, the cable and drive unit is alright. The speedo may be broken.

Check the front wheel. The speedo drive normally resides on the front wheel hub. Take a look at that and see if it looks normal, I'm thinking your cable broke inside the speedo drive which made the "pop" sound. There is a possibility the drive could also have cratered but this will have to be determined when the speedo drive is removed from the front axle and inspected for damage and function.

Remove front wheel 1990 zzr1100


Hi ...... You need to support the bike level (front paddock stand) and undo one side pinch bolt then using the hex adapter for that side unscrew anticlockwise ..................... I cant remember whether it's a 15mm or 17mm. The front spindle is threaded both sides. Support wheel & pull spindle out. Assembly is reverse but you have to make sure speedo drive is engaged correctly prior to tightening up.
