HTH. Click on the *Technical* drop down item, then click on troubleshooting, then electrical system, then on erratic speedo fix. When there, click on 'Dave Shealey' and that'll pull up the easy fix to a well known early year issue. Good luck.I have a '99 K1200LT and right before winter the speedometer stopped working correctly. It started jumping around at steady speeds. Can anyone tell me what might be the problem and how I might remedy it?
I was thinking the same thing, or at least to check it. As Scouter-50 said, remove the sensor and look down in from the top to see if this ring is still attached. you may need a good light and a mirror but you should be able to see if it has come loose. The attached pictures are what you are looking through and what you are looking at. This one is still attached.Pull the sensor back out and see if the slotted ring in the final drive that she sensor reads has come loose in the final drive.
