Speedo stopped working

Postby mike pace » Sat May 19, 2018 8:37 pm

1200gs 55 plate, Went out on bike and after a few miles the speedo stopped working. I pulled up and discovered the connector had come off back of speedo 7nit, so I pushed back on and all ok.
Today on way to MOT, speedo stopped again. This time pushed it back whilst engine running and then set off to find speedo not working. Stopped turned ignition off and on and it’s ok again.
Is there some ignition issue switch issue here?
Also anybody else had speedo connection comin* off back of unit and what’s the answer as for two years it’s not done i5 before.

Hi Mike,
Sounds like it's just the plug connector on the speedo to me. If it was unplugged when you turned the ignition on initially, I think you have to 'reset' the ignition if you like before it will work again.
Not sure as to why it should keep coming unplugged though, unless someone has tampered with it? It should click back into place when you reconnect it.

Just to add, if it was an ignition switch problem, you wouldn't have any electrics at all, not just the speedo.

Thanks Will, I’ll get the screen off so I can get some pressure on it
