check for a broken wire in the speedo sending unit- it's not unknown to happen.

you may have to peel the insulation back to get to it, or slide the outer protector sleeve around to get to it for a repair.

when you're done check your routing carefully so it doesn't happen again

Hi Adi, I had a temperature reading issue with my brand new 990R and when the dealer exchanged the dash/gauge unit, it cured the temperature reading issue but my speedometer did not work. It was a fault unit as well and the dealer exchanged it for another new one - no problem since then. I don't disagree with the other comment that it very well may be a broken wire from the sending unit / sensor at the wheel hub. Check all wires from the hub out. As an aside, I grew up in Petah Tikvah - beautiful part of the world to be in, you're very lucky, I'm looking forward to my visit back to Israel this summer - I have family in Hertzelyia Pituach and Petah Tikvah. I would love to rent a 990 and ride through the Negev one day...
