Speedometer niddle not working but meter reading is working need help

If the meter is doing its job and counting km's, it means the speedo cable is ok. The problem is most likely inside the speedo...a broken gear or spring perhaps. Try opening the speedo to have a look, if you're good with tools and technically minded.

Get on it and ride it some more, as the wheels turn they will then turn the speedo drive weather in the gear box or at the front wheel,

This in turn twists the speedo cable or fires the electronic speedo drive , this will then make the speedo needle leave the zero stopper and slowly rotate in the speedo cluster.

Whilst this is happening the trip meter will clock over meters + kilometre's , this will add milage to you fz.

Now this is a long winded description of how to do it but I guess that if you can t work out how to add milage to your bike you needed it.

good luck with it hope this info helps you.

Hello: Disconnect the speed sensor on the transmission. not only will the speedo not work but it will also keep it from shifting properly unless its a straight shift.

My speedometer is not working

  1. check the warm gear if it works properly or not if any damage in it it wouldn't work properly
  2. if it's okay means check the speedo meter cable..

I have a 1990 flt tour glide classic and its not charging correctly, the gauge is under 12 volts unless you rev the engine and the speedo reads too slow and when you stop it gradually goes to 10mph, its...

Let's start by taking the battery out and taking it to an automotive part store. Ask them to load test the battery for you. They'll usually do this for no charge. If the battery test good, put it back in the bike and make sure it's charged up fully.

Now, connect a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to the battery. Red meter lead to positive, black meter lead to negative. Put the meter function knob on DC Volts, 20 volt or greater range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should be reading 14.5-14.8 volts across the battery. If not, check the output of your alternator.

Unplug the regulator down at the cases just to the left side of your oil filter. Look down into the connector and you'll see two pins. Put your meter's function knob in AC Volts, 50 volt range. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Touch one lead of your meter (either lead) to one pin and the other lead to the other pin. You should be reading thirty volts or more.

If not, you probably need to replace the stator in your alternator, If you read 30 volts or more, replace your regulator.

Now, as to whether or not this will correct your speedo problem, I have absolutely no idea.

Good Luck

Noise under speedo meter

Your speedo cable is about to fail and should be replaced soon. Also check and make sure that no tranny fluid is being deposited inside the drivers side carpet. When these cables fail they sometimes spiral the fluid up trhrough the housing.If you are somewhat mechanically inclined this job is not to difficult to do. Thank you, Dana
