Odd Speedometer Behavior on DRZ/SM

Recommended Posts

Can't get it to do it all the time and when it does happen it only happens when the handlebars are in the locked position leaning on the kick stand but sometimes when I rev it, the speedometer shows speed anywhere from 5mph-30mph. Any reason for this as I thought the speedo worked off a gear on the front wheel? Should I be looking for a frayed wire or loose wiring? Anyone else ever experience it and have a cure for it? Just thought this was odd and have only seen it one happen one other time beside today.

it happened to mine also and eventually your screen will go blank . vibration causes a transistor to break loose or crack from the circuit board , all you need to do is re-solder where the break occurs . it looks like a small black rectangular block and it attaches to the board with 3 small legs , in my case one of the legs was broken from vibration . i soldered the connection and added some epoxy to prevent it from happening again , worked fine after that.
