The problem is most likely the Vehicle Speed Sensor, they were junk on the older bikes and fail. You can replace it easy. Buy a new sensor, Americansportbike.com or your Harley dealer will have them.

To get to the sensor, remove the belt guard that covers the front pulley, you will see the sensor mounted to the top of the transmission.

Where to buy Speedometer Reset Switch Replacement for Buell Blast motorcycle


It is a simple momentary push on 2 wire switch. If you want the oem one you MIGHT be able to get it from Harley Davidson, but they might be sold out of new old stock.

Need to replace the Reset switch on speedometer of my 2008 Buell Blast


Change your speed sensor behind the plastic cover that covers the front belt pully. They go bad a lot.

Buell Blast electrical problem


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

2001 blast, spedometer and odometer quick working. There is power to the cluster, but spedometer doesnt work, and doesnt record distance. Any quick checks I can do?


Yeah. The speedo/odo is run by a cable. You'll see it coming out of the back of the speedo. If the lubricant in the cable dries up, the cable can break/wear out. This is not an expensive repair, and you should be able to do it yerself. Buy a new one, then disconnect the old one from the back of the speedometer, pull off the gas tank, and follow it to the other end. Squirt some lubricant in the new cable, put it in place. Drive around the block to check it out.

Bad speed sensor


I recently sold my wife's Buell Blast to a nice young girl who called to say the speedometer has stopped working.  I did the speedo diagnostic and get a 02set code which will clear if the reset is held in but comes back immediately when you let go of the reset.  I removed the speed sensor and cleaned it but it still doesn't work and I realized that while the odometer does display accurate numbers and toggles between odometer and trip readings the mileage does not advance when the bike is ridden.  Any imput you may give will be appreciated.  As an aside I have a 92 RS1200.  Parts are hard if not impossible to find. Last year my rear caliper died and after much research found a comparable replacement.  Anyone who needs help with pre-Harley Buells can write me at any time.The only thing you can do about the speed sensor is buy a new one.  I got one this year for my 03 Firebolt as it was bad too and my speedo and tach didn't work when I first bought the bike. ,,,
