    speedo help please

    Hi Guys,

    I just purchased my first sportbike, a 00 GSXR750. I purchased it with the speedo not working, represented as needing a new speedo sensor. I replaced the sensor, but my speedo still does not work. It reads 0 mph all the time. The other gauges and indicators all work.

    So, can anyone tell me how many MPH per 1K rpm in each gear? Or, if you have any suggestions on fixing the speedo, that would be great too. Any and all help is appreciated.

    Thanks

    Thanks Mike....

    If anyone else wouldn't mind chiming in, I'd really appreciate some help with this one. My Hayne's manual is worthless with diagnosing speedo problems (it says to take bike to dealer). I will figure it out on my own, but it would be great if anyone had some direction for me.

    Or if anyone can tell me MPH per 1000 RPM in each gear, ie
    6th gear=16 mph per 1k RPM
    5th gear=13 " "
    4th gear=10 " "
    etc (above numbers are for illustrative purpose only)

    Thanks in advance

    hmmmmm......I need to do some research on this one. You replaced the speedo sensor, did you hook everything back up?

    interesting, I'm in the same situation. I recently bought a 98 gsxr750 with the speedometer not working. The rpm's work though. If you get it working I'd love to hear how you managed. I havn't tried the sensor yet. I'll give it a whirl when I get chance.

    Was it electronic in '00? Check the cable, coming from the front wheel.
