Sounds like a ground issue or a capacity is not discharging after the key is placed into the off position. a weak ground can cause the circuit not to discharge properly

No speedo


If it is a cable driven speedo it could be that the cable has worked loose from the back of the speedo and the centre dive cable isn't sitting in the speedo correctly. It could also be that the speedo centre cable ( steel cable) has broken and the rotation from the from drive is only being passed as it catches against the other end occasionally.
Hope this helps

You would know if you shorted it out by sparks jumping. Did you maybe momentarily or otherwise get the cables mixed up when you jump started it??? What does 5-1- mean???? What codes are set???? What exactly does dead mean??? Is there NO electrical acivity at all???????? Is the main fuse blown now????

While stopped when i rev the engine the speedo jumps alkl over

It sounds like you might have an electric/cordless speedo, what could cause it to jump while at a stand still when you rev the engine could be a bad connection in the instrument cluster where the voltage from your tachometer is affecting your speedometer. Try to see if any of the speedo or tacho wires are cracked, burned, melted, or just simply not grounded. Like I always say, badly grounded wires can create unmentioned problems.

Key off or on to accesories with no power and speedo tach jumps and makes clicking noise but won't even power horn or light. speedo tach stops jumping when on ignition but still no power

Hi Donna, check your battery voltage shoould be 12.5 volts or better and connections should be clean and tight. Also check circuit breakers and fuses. Good luck

Yamaha XT 125 R Fuse Keeps Blowing

The most likely problem is a a short circuit in the ignition barrel. It would give all of the symptoms you are experiencing. Although the speedo may have an internal short as well. The ignition barrel is just a tube with switches in it, it controls the power distribution for your entire bike.

How do i change the speedo cable on my 03 suzuki volusia? the speedo jumps around and my trip meter doesnt ork is it even the speed cable or is the magnet out

your speedo is electronic, no cables run to it. i found that out when i took the bike apart to paint it. it's possible that the comp board may be malfunctioning. may need to replace speedo on tank.

Try holding your key fob button down for about 20 seconds. This may resync the alarm. If that doesn't work, it's most likely in the speedo. You can try cleaning the speed sensor for the speedo. It is magnetic and picks up metal shavings which short it out. Pull it out of the trans and wipe off the shavings.
