  1. Front Sprocket Change and ODO and Speedo

    DL650A - 2017+
    I went to a 16 tooth front sprocket (I commute 95 miles round trip a day and enjoy endurance rallies, I totally understand 15T and 14T are better for other riders with different applications). I expected the speedometer to start reading more accurate and the Odometer to lag a little bit. All my...
  2. Connector Short/Corrosion

    Maintenance, Tech and Products.
    Hoping to get some advice regarding an electrical fault I had this morning. Riding to work the gauge cluster started behaving oddly. Lights coming on and off, gauges reseting. The engine continued to operate as expected with no interruption. Eventually the odd behavior stopped and things...
  3. 2014+ DL1000A Speedometer Correction Success!

    DL1000A - 2014-2016
    Like so many others, I noticed that my speedometer was reading high. When it said I was going 70mph, I was actually going 64. I know that this topic has been discussed at length so I won't get into it too much other than to say that since the ABS was added in 2014, it's made the process of...
  4. Speedometer just starting acting strange today on my 2012 650 ADv. w/ 1650 mi.

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    Symptoms: Went out on the bike in morning, no problem with speedometer during 10mi ride. Stopped for breakfast, no problem after restart. Went short distance and stopped again to run an errand, and then after starting the bike again the speedometer would jump anywhere from 2 mph to 12 mph, then...
  5. 16 Tooth Countershaft fixes Speedometer!

    DL650A - 2012-2016
    With the good midrange torque of the '12 Wee I though I might like a 16 tooth countershaft sprocket ( stock is 15t ). Around here I have to cruise at 70 mph and higher to keep from getting run over from behind and even out on the backroads it seemed the engine was a bit busy at 60-65 mph. The...
  6. Speedometer is inoperative: Please Help!

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    I recently acquired a 2005 dl650-- the wee-strom!-- with 21,000 miles and I am ecstatic about my recent purchase! The only problem is the speedometer needle doesn't even move, but the tach and odometer are functional... The plexiglass over the speedo is cracked, so I am led to believe that at...
  7. Speedometer erratic display

    DL1000 from 2002-2012
    Hey all, 09 DL-1000 with a sick speedometer. Only happens when the ambient temperature is hot. The needle fluctuates wildly with any transient in the bike voltage i.e. signal light, horn, shift low to high to low beam, etc.... When I come to a stop no the speedometer goes to it seems there...
  8. New Speedometer Fix???

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    So, I've read about all these fancy fixes on here for the spedo, but has anyone tried to fix it at the sensor? Is that even possible?
  9. Speedometer Accuracy

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    When I compare my wee speedometer reading to the reading on the GPS, The speedometer is consistently registering about 10km/hr over the actual speed (e.g. when I'm going 110 the speedometer is reading 120). Using the GPS in my car the speedometer reading and GPS are almost exactly the same...
  10. Another K7 ABS Speedo Sensor Failure

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    The good news is it's not too difficult to replace. I was able to lift the front wheel off the ground by running a bar through the SW Motech sump guard and supporting it with jack stands - very stable. After removing the side panels, I found I could reach the connector by disconnecting the...
  11. Speedometer malfunction on DL650A-K8

    DL650 and DL650A - 2004 to 2011
    Suddenly after a visit at the gas station, I noticed an electrical problem on my bike. When acceleration, the speedometer reading dies. If I release the throttle, or engage the clutch, or break, the speedometer readout is back. This may sound as a mechanical wiring or connector problem, or...
