Hi there! The speedo is electrical. Mine normally stops woking after ive washed my vtr and got alot water behind the screen ie chucking a bucket of water over it. Mines comes back on after its dry so a good dose of wd40 does the trick. NOT good not knowing how many miles you have done with one of these.

I think it's electrical. Take the Fairing offand ensure all the wires leading to the Speedo are connected and not loose. then follow the wires to where the connect to the engine and ensure they are also frimly in place. If it still doesn't work the internal mecanics of the Speedo may have broken. Take it to a mechanic.

If mechanical, remove cable at front wheel spindle, pull out metal square, see if its snapped.

Odometer not working on 1997 suburban


Hello BDG, The answer is no. If the VSS fails on your 97 Chevy, you will lose both speedometer and odometer functions. If your speedo is still working and your odometer is not, you have a broke odometer. This is a common failure with a lot of the older vehicles that were fitted with the mechanical odometer registers. Feel free to contact Kincer's Service for a repair salution.

My 2006 heritage odometer will keep total miles. It counts miles driven but once it is turned off and then back on, the milage total always goes back to 2882 total miles


If the speedometer is working and the odomter (mile counter) is not then clock is faulty. Replace as repair is not possible. If the speedo is not registering speed then the gearbox sensor is probably the cause.

What's the problem when your odometer reading


are you saying that the odometer does not roll over the miles and that the speed of water does register the current speed?
Usually if the odometer is not working it is a problem inside the speedometer unit in the dash.If neither is working then you may have a broken connection to the unit on the transmission that sends electrical information to the speedometer.I hope this helpsregards

My 2000 road king speedometer and odmeter have both stopped working??well they work every now and then???? whats up???


My 2001 road king just did the same thing. The speedo would bounce up and down then quit altogether. Turns out the battery cables were loose. This caused the voltage to the speedo to be hit and miss. I tightened mine and it works great. The odometer had power but registered no miles. Pull the seat and check the cables. Got this fix from a local friend who owns a bike repair shop.

Speedometer quit working i checked the sensor and it came out clean


My speedo went out while riding. It would bounce up and down then stopped completely. The odometer still had power but would register no miles. A local mechanic suggested to check the battery cables. While this seemed odd to me, I checked and found them loose. After tightening them up the speedo and odometer worked fine. Apparently the voltage connection to the speedo was hit and miss. So far everything is working great.

No Odometer read out


The odometer is driven off the speedo by and internal gear, they do not service the parts, so a new/rebuilt speedo is required to fix the problem
