Must be nice to have a speedo that works even if not accurate
I have a 2005 RX1 and it does not register speed, it will fluctuate between 0 and 13 but not really show my speed, any thoughts?? My friend claims that it may be crank bearings, is that possible?(I hope not, only 1700 miles on it)
I think it would be unlikely to be crank bearings on that machine. I am not sure where yamaha gets it's speedo take off, but seems like to me that the tach would have more issues with bad crank bearings. Also with 1700 miles on a set of bearings that sit in oil, I wouldn't look at the crank first. Just drop the oil in the crank case, see if you see anything. You may have a bad drive axle bearing or something like that, but they make a considerable amount of noise when they go. It is probably just something small, like the cable coming out of the back of the speedo!! Hopefully. Not sure if I helped at all, but keep us posted.
