How many times have I heard that the cables go bad...sheesh!

I guess better that goes than anything else in the computer.

The bike is preeemo now!

I have the same issue with my bike now. The speedo just reads 0 and odometer doesn't increment. Do you happen to have the part number for the speedo cable for the Adventure R? I traced the wire up from the sensor and it has a kink/bend near the steering head where the wire is wrapped from the factory with a white protective sleeve. When I turn my bars left and right, that wire bends each time and I suspect maybe it cracked internally. I want to try replacing the wire/cable first.
