Question about 2011 Piaggio BV Tourer 500

1 Answer

2006 piaggio BV 500 - intermittent speedometer/odometer. After the bike gets rained on, the speedo/odometer will always read zero, for a few days, then start working again. The saddle does not close completely due to the battery being the wrong size, so some rain might be getting in under the seat.

    Thanks Azraelsrl. Can you tell me how to locate the sensor wire on the transmission and on the speedo, on this 2006 BV500?

  • Matt Blais May 21, 2011

    Thank you for the manual. It is, unfortunately, not searchable, so I skimmed through it, but I could not find any reference to the wire/function you mention. Do you know where it is discussed in the manual?

  • Matt Blais May 21, 2011

    The only relevant odometer reference I found was on page TIME-43 - 44 (last chapter; refers to the front wheel, not the transmission)

The water getting in is corroding the electrical contact from the speed sensor's wire, situated on the transmission. This can occur at both ends: either at the sensor or at the indicator.
You will have to find out which by looking at the sensor connector: If it's corroded then clean it thoroughly, crimp it a little more then insert it firmly and insulate it further with some hot glue. If the connector there is in good working order then follow the wiring up to the instrument panel; - check for wires with broken insulation and repair that. Finally if all the wires are correct then the fault is at the indicator: take it out, clean it and insulate both the connector and the instrument panel itself - the water might seep in and short the electronics board.

    This is correct, the new version, with which i'm not well experienced, has the sensor for the speedometer on the front wheel, near the break disk. Follow the manual, it's always correct.

Electrical problems


your speedo is not sealed where it mounts as all of these items are triggered by the speedo also the thje gas gauge fogging is just typical has the tank or the guage units ever been changed? the solution is to pull the speedo and replace the o-ring that seals it from the outside elements as well as the seal that rests against the tank under the speedo

Intermittent speedometer failure


Try replacing the speedometer sensor, located on the transmission under the car. There will be a few wires going to it with a plug. The speed sensor is a retivly low cost part, and most of the time when it begins to quit it will give irratic readings on the dash.
Hope this helps!

If your unit is cable driven, get yourself an old piece of cable and insert it up into the speedo and then spin the cable while watching. If the needle jumps its pretty much assured the speedo head is ok and that your problem is in the cable or in the front wheel. Bill

No Odometer read out


The odometer is driven off the speedo by and internal gear, they do not service the parts, so a new/rebuilt speedo is required to fix the problem
