Unfamiliar with bike but if cable driven, then the cable is probably in need of renewal. on older machines this could have been solved by dripping oil through the cable but newer machine (since the 80s) oil will actually cause the problem.

if not cable driven, it will be either the sensor in the wheel (remove carefully, clean, grease and rebuild) or the speedo control unit.
either of these normally are unrepairable and need replacing (expensive)

My odometer is not functioning anymore

Is the speedo reading 00? If so, check the speed sensor on the front sprocket.
It will need to be replaced. It is not repairable.

I would look at the ignition system. Possibly a faulty ignition module or coil ( if you have a single coil ) Multiple it will generally be one coil that goes bad and results in a misfire code. Or if it's the ignition module it might not throw a code at all, And it might test fine if it's had a chance to cool down before it's tested.

My flame keeps going out. i can press the reset button and some times it will work for a week sometimes only 30 seconds. It is an intermittent igniter. The flame seems to "roll back" when it...

Your GMS unit should not be intermittent ignition but direct electronic ignition. In any case the flame should never roll out of the chamber. There can be a few reasons for the roll out but sometimes a good cleaning of the heat exchanger and a combustion analysis can cure that. The intermittent flame issue is probably a dirty flame sensor and can be cleaned with light sand paper or steel wool. Be careful not to touch the igniter only the flame sensor. It is usually on the opposite side of the burners from the ignition source. Hope this helps :)

chances are the ignition coil or crank or cam sensors are intermittently cutting out. the crank sensor should be mounted on the transmission on the top left side. they are cheap and i would start there.

False fish readings

False fish readings are commonly caused by electrical interference such as alternator noise, and by air bubbles flowing across transducer.

For starters make sure your fishfinder is on an independent circuit and not on one powered by your ignition switch. In other words, you should be able to turn your fishfinder on, even though the engine is turned off. Ideally the fishfinder should be wired directly to the battery with an in line fuse.

Try running the boat at a speed slightly higher than trolling speed, then kill the engine, as the boat slows down to trolling speed do you still see false echos? If yes then the problem probably lies with how the transducer is mounted, or where it is located on the hull.

If you don't see the false echos when the engine is off, it may be necessary to reroute the transducer cable to keep it away from the boat's ignition wires. You can get transducer extension cables if necessary. Also there are filters that you can buy that suppress alternator noise buy attaching between the battery and the engine.

Another common cause of false echos from electrical interference is a transducer cable that has been cut and spliced.

I hope this information helps. Please reply if you have any questions about my response.
