Has anyone had their Honda digital speedo/odo act up?

Recommended Posts

I've got a digital meter off an '85 XR350R. It worked fine for a while, but on a rough dual sport ride, it was skipping ahead a mile at a time. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Toby

From what I've read about them, theyre so rare because they tended to break. Maybe try cleaning the magnetic pickup?

I've got two -- one from my old '85 XR350 that is now mounted on my XR400, and one from an '84 XR600 that is mounted on my XR250. Regardless, I've found them to be fairly bulletproof (other than minor surface scratched). You might check the speedo cable connection on both ends (make sure it's fully seated in your hub as well as mounted right in the sensor pickup unit). Also, it may start to act funny when the batteries start to go bad -- check that. Other than that, I've had no issues whatsoever in nearly 20 years of use!

If all else fails, there's one on eBay right now (that's where I scraped the pic from). A spare could come in handy (though pricey)...
