Check your speedometer cable where it connects to the speedometer. These often come loose. You can also disconnect it and see if it turns when your front wheel is raised off the ground and spun. If the cable turns, your speedometer is likely bad. If the cable does not turn when the wheel is spinning check the other end of the cable at the front wheel. Remove the cable at the speedometer drive unit on the front wheel. Inside where the cable connects there is a flat pin in the center that should turn when the front wheel is spun. If the drive unit is not turning, you will need to remove it for inspection and likely replacement. On the front wheel you will want to make sure the tabs that turn the speedometer drive are not damaged as well.
Good luck

Why does my speedometer not work most the time?


If its like the xvs650, sometime the speedo end of the cable has a habbit of dropping off, lift the speedo housing and have a look. I had it happen just I got to a speed camera which was funny in the least.
