Speedometer/cruise control issue
I have a problem that I could use some help with. I was riding the ol' LT yesterday, heading up to Pinnacles National Monument (California). I hit a bit of rough road, though not that rough, and the cruise control released. I reset it and it released again. Now any time I set it, if I hit any irregularities in the road's surface, the cruise control releases.
But wait, it get better...
I noticed on the ride home ('bout 500 miles) that the speedometer will drop 5-10 mph before returning to the correct speed. Again, it is irregular and happens at the same time the cruise control releases.
So I went to my official K1200LT repair manual only to find that it doesn't include a wiring diagram. What's with that?!
My question(s): Where's the vehicle speed sensor? Is there some kind of accelerometer that would cause the cruise control to release? Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated as I would like to get this fixed before next weekend. I have a meeting in the bay area on Friday that I'd MUCH rather go to on the bike than in a car.
Thanks, in advance, for all of your help
