It sounds like either the gears or the speedometer cable itself is worn out. I would try replacing the speedometer cable.

Did you have the front wheel off recently?
The speedometer sensor is easily broken and a common occurrence when the wheel is removed and replaced.
The symptoms are erratic or non-working speedo.

You need to follow the wiring from your meters to wherever there is a connector.It may not be easy to get to though.I would bet that the connector is loose,corroded(less likely)or disconnected.For everything within the same area on a bike to be bad at once is highly unlikely.If it were the speedo,tach,and odometer,then MAYBE.But your horn doesn't work also.That is why I would say the instrument cluster wiring.The brakes,gas and clutch are all mechanical connections.About all that is left electrically is your electric start(probably equipped with one correct?,and your blinkers).You may have front blinkers but not back ones working too because of the wiring.Rear brake light is separate and is past that section so it should be fine,although it could end up at the same spot,but a more direct route to the relay.If you end up being unable to find a bad connector or at least something,please let me know about the couple of extra electrical components(op or in-op) which were not in your post.Thanks,Greg

Speedo stops working at times and when turning on ignition, the needles refrain from wiping across the clocks. then all of a sudden all works fine again. What to do?


Hi, William and the usual suspects are:
1. Contaminated speedometer sensor.
2. Corroded, broken or loose connector pins/sockets in the wire harness between the speedometer and the ECM and the sensor.

my guess would be that the wiring that runs from the car to that door is probably shorted inside the rubber boot. pull it back and check the wiring in there

Odometer, tachometer, speedometer, and gas gauge suddenly stopped working.


Sounds like the body control module has gone bad. It has a relay that caries considerable current to all of these accesories and wears out.
It can also be a solder joint on the circuit board where this relay mounts.
Hope this helps, Robert

Motorcycle speedometer problem


Check the wiring harness under the speedometer to make sure everything is connected tightly.

Have you had your front wheel off at any time?
What usually happens is the magnetic speed sensor at the front wheel was not lined up properly when the wheel was replace and it broke. A very common occurrence.
