Re: Speedometer dilemma
I have a peculiar problem regarding the speedometer on my ’01 929. *Bike was sitting for approximately 2-weeks, and when I took it out for a quick ride this past weekend, the speedometer would not increase from “0” as speeds increased. *The cluster seems alright as the clock works fine and everything else appears normal when the bike is at idle (i.e. speedo shows “0”, odometer is displayed properly, trip-odometer is displayed, etc.). *Once the bike gets moving however, the speedo does not indicate the increase in speed and remains as “0”. *
Now the interesting part. *After initially riding anywhere from five to ten miles, the speedometer suddenly kicks in and indicates the proper speed as if nothing was ever wrong. *This scenario has happened three times in a row since its first occurence, and generally the bike has sat overnight between each ride. *
Has anyone else experienced problems similar to this or have any thoughts on what to look for? *While it’s certainly not the end of the world and the bike is still ride able, I’d sure like to determine what’s causing this erratic behavior and fix it. *Thanks!
