no speedometer...

hey all, while out riding the other day on my '11 Adv R, all street in pretty hot conditions, my speedo suddenly stopped working. I've never taken the wheel off, until today. I am getting ready for a trip and leaving on aug 5th so am getting new rubber. I have 8k km. And now this problem presents itself!

I've checked the fuse (glovebox ones). All ok.

I've checked the speedo connector and sprayed it with electrical spray for any oxidation. Nothing.

I've checked the magnet at the other end of the speedo wire, cleaned it up. Nothing.

I've taken the speedo wire completely off and inspected it, looks perfectly fine.

While taking the off the speedo wire, I noticed a second wire, that is connected with a small white connector (not as big as the speedo connector) up behind the headlight along with all the other bike wires, and from here it runs ziptied, down along with the speedo wire down along the left brake line. While the speedo wire goes down and the magnet is screwed to fork, this second wire suddently stops just below the lower triple clamp It's literally a dead end wire. What is this for, is it for those with ABS? Also, the end of this wire looks like it could be a little damaged.

Unfortunately I "may not post attachments" otherwise I would post some pics.

Almost forgot, this morning when i first got on the bike the speedo worked, well sort of, I saw a 6km then back to zero. Done, nothing more.

Along with the speedo the odometer does not work. Everything else, highbeam, horn, lights, blinkers all work.

I am hoping to resolve this before I leave for my trip around Mt. Blanc/Val d'Isere!

Anyone have any suggestions I am going crazy!!!

Should I just go buy a new speedo wire and hope that is it? I also don't know how to test the one I do have...

Cheers.

same problem as Motrix

I have a 990 Adv White ABS 2009.

I have same problem related above.

i start riding, velocimeter and odometer work's fine.
After few miles, velocimeter goes to 0 (zero) and odometer doesn't count any more.
I have changed 3 times the SPEEDOMETER (part number 60114169000 ), and the problem goes on.

Now, i will exchange the "abs sensors".
i will Install the back abs on front and vice-versa, to test.

any ideas, about this problem?

I am afraid you could have CDI malfunction.

Had similar speedo showing zero except when turning on and off. Never found out what happened, but I suspect CDI problem.
Cheers.

On my second speedometer!

Purchased my 2008 SuperDuke in 2011 with a one year warranty. The speedo went out a few months ago. The odometer needle stuck at 4k and everything else on the LED screen had disappeared.

Brought it is to Scuderia in SF and they replaced the speedo with a new unit. I put about 1500 miles on the bike since then and the speedo goes out again. Same exact symptoms.

My warranty is expiring in a month but I already reported it to them and they couldnt not figure it out. I just dont understand what is up with the bike.

Anyone else have these issues.

Miguel

Just a thought, check your voltage and make sure your voltage regulator is not on the way out. I would actually mount a meter and go for a ride.. Over voltage to the dash could be the problem.

Agree, it won't hurt check that for peace of mind. My failing regulator made my Speedo and ABS act funny, burned the ABS sensor and a few bulbs.

Replacement

I was wondering whether one needs to take the front wheel off in order to replace the speedometer cable or is it just the left brake caliper? Advise about the correct procedure would be appreciated. Thank you.

Not familiar with 950/R/S bikes (non ABS models) but in a standard 990 with ABS you just remove the bolt that attachs the sensor and cut the zip ties to take the cable off. No need to remove anything, you'll figure it out as soon as you take a look down there.
The cable, however, plugs into the ABS button so you have to remove the headlight.

Question strange things happening

So i rode the entire summer without a speedo. I have a gps so i know the km i've done in that respect.

Recently the speedo started working again, but on and off. From time to time when showing zero while I am riding, if I take a right hander, by leaning the bike, the speedo works. Then straight again it goes back to zero. If I lean left, it does not work. I've checked the front wheel, seems on right and the spokes are all tight.

WTF is going on?

gyroscopic speedo?

I would check connectors and cables going to the speedo/clock.

Cables around the bike neck?

Also keyswitch barrel?
Battery connections? Starter relay?

is this the problem you have?.


Because i had this as well, its caused by plastic and plastic rubbing together inside the speedo due to vibrations from the bike and that white plastic chafing is causing contact problems.
Sollution: open the speedo clean everything and put back together, done.

But why don't you go to a dealer, you have a 2011 model so must still have warranty?

I've checked the connectors before, I'll check again though a second time...

Mine is the R so without abs and the speedo magnet is screwed at the bottom of the fork. From here I assume it picks up on the bolts on the wheel. The thing that strikes me odd is how by turning it works, then doesn't.

Keyswitch barrel, battery connections and starter relay are all mint. I mean, everything on the bike, on the dash and elsewhere works. Just the stupid speedo that only seems to work when it wants!

Spark01 no mine is not like in your photo, all the numbers, gauges work, temp, clock odo etc.
But I think you are right to just bring it to the dealer, I have no other options, and yes its still under warranty still by a bit. I just never like bringing it to the dealer.

I guess next week i'll try to get her over there...so they can figure it all out

Just got the bike back from its 3rd tuneup and the speedo cable was bad.

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.

Thanks
