Speed Sensor Failure

I had my foot on the rear brake and rolled backward down a hill. I think the rear brake caliper rotated and broke the sensor.

Has anyone experienced this?

I am struggling to find a replacement part, any recommendations?

Thank you

The ONLY WAY the caliper can rotate is if you reinstalled it with the groove on the caliper plate not engaging the tab on the swingarm. This is your first problem.

I can not help you with the second problem beyond recommending a parts search at maybe Chapparal (they have been best for quick ordering of non-stocked items).

Rear ABS sensor is what broke. Check Partzilla for a schematic and part number.

Thanks, I will reinstall the wheel and make sure it is done correctly this time. I did not see the grove and tab. My second set of tires so must have gotten lucky the first time.

I have been poking around partzilla with no luck.

You are not the first to do it and will not be the last.

Yep, been there done that. Fortunately the Vee has no ABS sensor to break.

The rear wheel speed sensor is located in the parts microfiche under the heading "Hydraulic Unit", referring to the ABS hydraulic unit.
MR Cycle shows this item as Part# 67510-11J00. Price shown is $165.97.

I did not think to look in the Hydraulic Unit.

Just ordered one.

Thank you
