odometer/ spedomoter not working
« on: July 15, 2017, 07:07:44 PM »
I have a 2013 Snyper 600.   Very recently I had a battery/starter issue, the bike wouldn't start.Not knowing what it was we ended up taking the starter off. It ended up being just the battery, put the starter back in, put a new battery in it, starts great now. but... now the odometer/ spedometer is not working and the malfunction light is flashing. Could I have done something to the speed sensor while I had the starter off? I looked at the service manual and can't seem to figure out where the sensor is located. Can anyone help?

Speed sensor is on the dip-stick side just below it. May have gotten unplugged.

That's funny, another member just posted about where a wire went. It was the speed sensor. He posted a good picture in a tread or two below this one.

found the speed sensor, it is still plugged in so I assume I need a new one, really new at this, how do I unplug it down below the dip stick, does it just pull out, was scared to try.

Also is this why my malfunction light is blinking?

Can I still drive it with the speed sensor gone and the malfunction light blinking or will I do damage to the machine?

Need to test it first. And then I think when you take the retainer bolt out and remove it you need to drain the oil first if it goes into the case. The 800s are outside. As for running it, I don't know. I don't think it will be a problem.

The answer to that question ..should be in your service manual. :)

While working on my air intake system I pulled the cable connected to the speed sensor out of the connection near the intake manifold, although I still don't know how, with the cable disconnected which would be equal to a bad sensor I still had power to the speedometer on the dashboard, a big green 0, so I thought that me speedo was working, it was not until I drove up the driveway did I know that the speedo was not working, so the first question is do you have power at the dash indicating a speed of 0, if not than I would suspect a fuse or loose wire leading to the speedo is the problem, if you do have a "0" then I would check the connection to the speed sensor near the motor and if that is good I would suspect the sensor itself is bad.

Check the sensor connection here.  The sensor is #10 and is held in with 1 bolt.
