Speedo failure on my Burgman 400 (2000)

The speedometer on my Burgman 400 has stopped working. Can someone please advise if this is a cable operated speedo or is it measured electronically. The year of the machine is 2000 (W) and it has served me faithfully without fault up to now.

    I now have mine fixed but had to order the part from my local bike shop. It was not very expensive (£30 UK)and it took 10 minutes to fit. I hope you get it sorted.

I had the same problem, the speedo is magnetic and it is inside the front wheel bearing, usualy when dirt goes in it brakes it so
I had to replace the magneto ring and it worked perfect. I went to a private suzuki parts provider and he ordered it for me for £15.00
replaced it myself, just take the wheel out and remove the old ring, clean, then put the new one.

but it could be that your speedo cable is bad, or dashboard is bad

Speedometer not working

On a mechanical (cable driven) speedometer, the problem's the drive unit, the cable, or the speedo head itself.

You stated the cable is good, so let's eliminate that.

You can attach the inner and outer cable to the speedo head, chuck the bottom end of the inner cable in a drill motor, and spin it to see if the speedo head responds.

If not, new speedo needed.

It both the cable and speedo head are good, then it's the speedometer drive (I believe it's in the rear brake backing plate) is probably bad.

Remove it and inspect/replace.

I have 1993 jeep grand cherokee spedometor stopped working and rpms are high and fuel consumption is poor

Time for a tune-up! Need to have it diagnosed thoroughly. Likely your speedometer not working is not related, though. I know on the older models the speedo was operated by a cable from transmission up to behind the dash panel. They can break inside the sheath that covers the cable. Pretty simple fix-but you may need to pull out your instrument panel slightly to reach behind and unclip the end of the cable from the speedo. First, unhook end from transmission, grab end of cable and twirl it: someone inside the car can see if the speedo needle moves slightly when you twirl it. If it DOES move your speedo in the dash may need replacing. If it doesn't move, your cable is likely broke. Just get another from a salvage yard.

My speedo does not work cable is ok it just stopped on the motorway after working ok checked the cable and it turns a both ends

With the cable attached to the speedometer ask someone to observe as you make few turns in a flash on the cable , if there is no noticeable deflection the speedo moving a little above the zero - parking position- then the speedometer cablke connection socket is worn out as it can become rounded off in long usage.If so adjust with a SHIM placed into the socket of the meter to wedge.
however is there is deflection then the pinion in the gear box connecting the cable is faulty , the worm gear must be worn out.

Speedo stopped working

This is usually due to a broken speedo cable. The cable breaks when the lubricant in the speedo cable housing thickens beyond use from age, if the cable housing leaks and rust forms, or the speedometer itself gets gummy and hard to turn with age.

If the cable is broken, ensure free operation of all the parts, and then replace the cable.

1989 Honda Accord speedometer not working. What is a speedo head?

The speedo head or cluster is the part that houses the speedometer and tach, etc. now it may be the speedo cable that comes from the transmission to the speedo head that has broken. If so replace the cable and your back in business. If it is the head you can get them from your local recycle yard.

1987 Volkswagen Golf - speedometer problem

Well I would verify the trany speed gear is "ate up" first, theres only one 10mm bolt that holds it in place, sure the area around the speedo cable is very CLEAN before removing it any dirt in there would make things bad to say the least. If you pull the cable out the gear is attached to the cable if it looks good then put it back together and remove your cluster (speedo and other gauges inside) I suggest you pick up a repair manual at a big auto store on MK1-MK2 vdubs (82-92) to explain how to remove speedo cable from back of cluster its kinda of tricky getting your fingers back there and pressing it together to get it to release. Once out drive the car and see if that cable is turning from the inside if it is then its your speedo gauge that is faulty. Grab a cluster from a scrap yard, if that cable is NOT turning then the gearing inside the trany is messed up which would mean taking the trany apart to repair it. If that was the case you would be cheaper to replace the whole trany with a used one. Good luck
