    Make sure the spedo needle isn't sticking to the stop post before changing that, I've heard of people puting a plastic or rubber sleeve over the post so the needle won't stick to it

      need a small ratcheting bit driver.....I removed seat and side covers...I cut down the bit as much as i could and supergfued it in so it wont back out. I used a paint stirring/ruler wooden piece to apply pressure on the back of the head of the bit driver to help with getting the bolt back in (removal pretty easy). New sensor is about $90

        Pretty sure it's not the actual speedo, as I've tried two different. Either sensor or wiring...

          If the odometer isn’t registering, it’s not the meter.

          As far as I have guessed the blue/yellow to the sensor is 12v+, the black/blue is 12v- and the white is signal. So I rigged it up with a + from the battery to the blue yellow, a - from the battery to the black/blue, but still no luck. Was this a too optimistic test? Had + and - to the meter simultanously, and the white of course

            Was the sensor. If you should ever find yourself in the same situation, then just don't. Knowing the speed you're travelling with is highly overrated!
            Lug Nut was right. Pain in the ass!
