Question about 2007 Honda VT 750 Shadow

2 Answers

I have a 1997 Honda VT 750 shadow ,I was riding and the speedo suddenly stopped working, a while later it started again only to stop once more , it hasn't started going again. What could be the problem I have taken the cover off the wheel sender and found that the thingy inside is turning.

    It doesn't have a speedometer cable as such ,within the box attached near the front axle there is a little wheel which turns and I believe there is a pickup which obviously sends an electronic signal to the speedo ???. Is there a way of testing this type of speedo.???

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.

That shiney thing is the speed o meter cable,, sounds like yours is stripped and needs replacing,, purchase one for your bike, and replace it.

    yeah ,, there are 2 ways. The first is continuity, basically it works with a coil and magnet, sort of like a mini generator, once the coil isnt burn its good. simply set a multimeter to diode (the beep setting) and connect it to each ends on the wires that come out, once you hear a beep its fine. if no beep its not fine.

    the second way to check and see if its broken mechanically,
    1.) cut both wires leading out from it. connect it to a multimeter set at 12 VDC
    2.) ride bike or lift on hoist and see in the reading on the multimeter increases as you accelerate.

    I thought your bike was cable for some reason didn't realize it was electronic. Then yes your looking in the right path, if you dont get a good respond from that using the above methods it needs changing, if you do then its the speedometer, thats the only 2 eggs in that basket.

most likely your speedometer cable or sensor was the culprit. I assume they cleaned and lubed it properly and remedied the problem.

speedo cable broke, if your lucky! or the speedo mechanism that it hooks to broke. Disconnect cable, inspect cable, jack up front wheel, spin tire and if you hear squeek its the mechanism.

Wont start .it is something to do with the stand


If the bike has the side stand down and the clutch is released, the ignition is cut for safety. It stops riding away with the side stand down.
