2014 Speedo not working

So after rebuilding my bike (plastics mainly, small spill) my speedo decided to stop working for me. It still displays temps (both engine and intake), fuel consumption and RPM's but speed stays at 0 and no miles get recorded at all. Ive pulled my hair out and my pubes are all I got left, anyone got any ideas on what it could be?

Please and thanks!

PS: Also, only had 1 FI code pop up but I accidentally shut off the bike and restarted it so I did not see the code, I do remember it showing all 3 levels of KTRC blinking tho... and its only happened once, I havent been successful in getting it to replicate

Sounds like there is an issue with the wheel speed sensors, I would double check the wiring to the sensor, clean of the magnet and re-install. Then go for a test drive. The KTRC flashing could also be the same issue with the wheel speed sensors. Give it a check and report back what you find.

Is it safe to assume that speed is measured off the rear wheel speed sensor rather than the front?

Ok so after a quick swap (front and rear) I determined there's something faulty with the rear sensor. Wiring harness end connectors are good but the connector end on the rear sensor looks like it kinda split on pin 2... really activates my almonds..

well I cleaned up the connectors and still no dice, found one on ebay for less than 30 so im waiting on that to come in now. The thing thats confusing me tho, while the bike is on and rear wheel is spinning I still get no FI error or anything both with the sensor connected and disconnected... I wouldve thought to at least get (b 44) or something... Anyone got any idea why its not displaying anything?

Also thanks for the welcoming duhastme!

For certain it's something you did with the harness.

How so? I just tested the front sensor into the rears harness and it registers on the Speedo...
Man you're scaring me if I have to replace that :s

I would not take what scout says to heart to much.... he has a tendency for stating things completely incorrect, misconstruing things and outright being confused about what the subject matter is.

So correct me if I am wrong but you are saying that with the front wheel not spinning but the rear wheel spinning you are not getting a mph reading? If so that would be correct if your connector is contacting the sensor correctly. Basically the bike is reading no movement from the front and no movement from the rear so there are no issues. Its when you move the front wheel without any reading from the rear or vice versa there are issues with the KIBS or KRTC. Now is the connector in the image above from the wheel speed sensor? Or from the harness side?

Np for the welcome, when you have a moment make a thread introducing yourself. Makes for some good rib jabbing if not good place to see the bike.
