I had the same problem. The speedo and the tacho are both stepper motors and the pointer is driven via a set of plastic gear wheels. The cogs strip and the stepper motor can not go past a cetrain point at which the pointer twitches. My solution was to strip out the console and swap the tacho and speedo gearing. If your are technically minded it is quite easy. If not, get somebody who is to do it for you. Good luck. Steve.

A Tachymeter helps you estimate the speed you are going.

It uses the basic formula that speed = Distance/time

Here is how to use it: (For the full article see the link below)

To use tachymeter, simply start the chronograph or stopwatch when the object measured passing the starting line. When the object reaches the next mile or kilometer marker, stop the chronograph or stopwatch. The point on the tachymeter scale that adjacent to the second hand of the watch indicating the speed (in miles per hour or kilometers per hour) of object traveling between the two points.

For example, we want to measure the average speed of a vehicle is moving. Start the chronometer or stopwatch function when the car passes the starting line, and stop the timer after the vehicle traveled exactly 1 mile or 1 kilometer. Then look at where the chronometer hand (the second hand of the watch) is pointing to, and get the reading or value of the corresponding number at the tachymeter bezel or dial. Let's say the stopwatch stop at 3 o'clock position, meaning 15 seconds had elapsed for the car to travel 1 mile or 1 kilometer. At 3 o'clock position, the tachymetre value shows that number of 240, which means the average speed of the vehicle was 240 mph or km/h.

Dodge avenger speedo sticks and doesnt seem to shift correctly after speedo sticks

Sticks? Where? Zero miles per hour, or a value above that? The problem is likely the speedo "head", the part immediately behind the speedometer that makes it work. And if the speedo is not working right, the trans will not either. It might be worthwhile to have it "scanned" to see if the computer can identify the cause of the fault.

I JUST GOT A 2007 SUZUKI BURGMAN 400 from Wisconsin with 2900 miles on it and found out that it cannot be registered until it has 7500 miles on it.Apparently it is a ( 49 state ) bike and California isnt...

You could buy a second hand speedo from a bike breakers, I would never suggest you try tampering with the odometer, the way dodgy used dealers may remove some miles.

Reads 40 TO 45 miles per hour but I know I am going faster and sometimes it will drop to 0 miles per hour.

A place in Flint Michigan will repair this problem (speedo motor) for 100.00 and will replace all the other motors associated with your dash instruments. Off of Hill Road Near I-75. Did my truck in 20 minutes. Works Great!!! Business called Speedometer Something.

Speedometer cable

First: you unscrew the cable housing assembly from the back of the speedomiter housing.

Second: you pull the speedomiter cable from the housing.

If the cable is broken inside the housing you must unscrew the housing from the spedomiter adaptor on the front axle,. at this point you should be able to pull the broken end from the adaptor with a pair of pliersif you can't pull it at this point you will have to pull the front axle and take the adaptor out and try to remove the broken end.

I hope this helps.
