Question about 2007 Honda VT 750 Shadow
In this bike the speedo is an electromagnetic type: a sensor sends impulsed to an conversion board that transforms them in a steady and proportional voltage that is displayed by an needle measuring electromagnetic indicator.
So only 4 things can go wrong with it - to check for them dismantle the speedo, lift the rear wheel, engage top gear and start th engine:
1 - the conversion board doesn't get powered - check for the presence of 12v at the speedo board.
2 - the sensor is dead - check for the 50mV signal coming from it to the board.
3 - the electromagnetic indicator is faulty - check the voltage on it , about 2,5V
4 - the board is dead - if the first 3 are ok then this is the cause.
If the indicator or the board are defective then the speedo is dead, replace it.
