Mostlikely it is the drive unit at the front wheel.

I have a mazda astina ba 95 just had a clutch change after this has been done it has gotten 2 problems which were working fine before the change, problem 1 is when put into gear doesn't matter what...

Check the throttle cable for incorrect adjustment with the A/C turned off. Adjust cable to obtain 850 rpms. The A/C on will increase idle speed, which is a normal function. Check the speedo cable for correct connection at the back of the transmission case. make sure hand tight at the drive.

The speedometer on my 95 honda nighthawk 250 does not work.

look on the bottom of the speedo, there is a cable there that runs to the fron wheel, check to make sure it is tight, if it is not, tighten it and it should work, if already tight, unscrew it and check the cable inside, pull it all the way out of its sleeve (the black plastic part) it will be very dirty, so be prepared. ensure both ends are square at the tips, if they are not you need a new speedo cable, if they are square on both ends, slide it back in all the way down and try to twist it, it should not twist once all the way in(but if you turn front wheel, it should twist inside sleeve). once the cable doesnt twist inside the sleeve, match the square end into the square hole where you unscrewed it from on the speedo, then tighten the sleeve nut back on tight. if this doesnt fix it, repost as "how do i relpace speedometer"

95 camry speedo meter and odo meter stops working all of a sudden again it starts working. Some days the check engine light glows with odometer off light and after couple of days it works fine Please help...

It sounds like the Speedo cable is going bad remove the cable connector on the side of the transmission and twist the cable and see if the odometer moves, you can also pull out the cable from this end and check the Speedo end, if it's bad it will be rounded off rather than square. If the gear in the transmission is bad you can put the cable into the end of the Speedo gear on the transmission and try turning it if it turns around say a half turn or more then the gear is bad, all you do is pull out the bolt and the small horse shoe clamp and wiggle out the gear and go buy a new one at the dealer or transmission shop, if the cable is bad you can buy a cable kit for $12.00 the gear is about $10.00. The check engine light would come on because the Speedo is malfunctioning and uses the info from the Speedo to input injector pulse width.

The speedometer n my 1999 Sportster 1200 has stopped registering. How do I fix it?

This depends on whether it is an electronic speedo or a mechanical speedo.
The electric speedo has a sensor near the rear of the engine. Sometimes a very small piece of metal will get stuck on the end of the sensor and the speedo will stop working. Remove the bolt holding the sensor into the engine case and carefully pull the sensor out. Wipe it off and reinstall it. If the speedo still does not work, it's probably something in the speedo itself.

On a mechanical speedo, a cable from the front wheel drives the speedo. The cable or the speedo drive unit may be bad. To check the cable and drive, lift the bike off the ground, disconnect the cable from the rear of the speedo. Turn the front wheel and see if the cable is turning. If it is, it's probably alright. I'd still pull the cable out of it's housing and lubricate it with some grease. If the cable is turning, the cable and drive unit is alright. The speedo may be broken.

My odometer stopped working on my 1995 Vulcan 800.

Real easy. Look down at the back of your instrument cluster (you said '95 so I'm giving directions for tank cluster) you'll see three bolts in a triangle. the one at the bottom holds the cluster to teh tank. Remove it, speedo cable simply unscrews from the back of the speedo. Note very very carefully how the cable is routed it is absolutely essential that you route it right or you won't have a happy result. The bottom end is simply 1 screw undo and pull it out. Both ends simply have a squared off hard steel shaft that slide in no problems with little gears, very simple BUT make very sure you route the new one exactly the same as the one you take out. If you need any more help let me know

i had this problem with mine if your cable spins wen the car is moving its not the gear box end or the cable its the speed sensor in the speedo its self its very easy to fix you have to strip the speedo out of the case the sensor is only small and on the under side of the speedo the sensor is about 50 mm long and 10 mm wide change that and it should be ok
oh remember to reset your ecu
