Gauge reading 0

Im just putting a ZX10r (05) back together after it was crashed...It was all cosmetic damage. I got a used gauge cluster from another cat on this fourm and everything lights up nice, time, turn signals, temp, works fine but the spedo reads 0, KM dont move when riding?? could this be the speed sensor? I took it off and it seems clean and fine. Is there a way to test it? thanks boys

Could well be, I would check the connections to it, if I remember correctly they are at the side of the airbox.

no, the headlights do not need to be connected. check the wiring to the guage cluster to make sure it's working properly...download the service manual for the procedure.

Before you go that far check the lead to the speed sensor. It gets routed throught the left side engine mount and sometimes gets pinched. I did it when I put my came in and was like WTF so a inspected the line and sure enough. Check that before you go spending all sorts of money.

Yah I did that and tested the wire going through..I just put my buddys 636 gauge on the bike and it is reading the speedo..Its way way way out (doing about 60km and it reads 7km nice and steady).. Its so confuzing because the gauge only has 4600km on it and it lights up nice and everything works but the speedo and odometer... I guess ill send it in to BLUEGAUGES.com and hope for the best..

When I was serching ffor my 06 adn looling at othrs I noticed that the speedo cluster has some issues that Kawi indicates are common. I looked at one that read fine for a while when starting to ride then would flash or read 180mph etc. I think it would be wise to contact kawi to see the frequency this issues has been reported to see if it is a manufactureer issue as well. Hope you get it resolved...

Speed sensor malfunction (the wiring or the sensor itself) or sensor disconnected will shoot error 24 at the FI.
If never showed an FI, then the problem is the cluster.

Yah I put a new speed sensor in it thinkin that was it but still the same thing.. I put a gauge from a 06 636 and the speedo worked just way way off... I am told from Bluegauges.com its the gauge becasue we ruled out everything elts(we hope).. I just sent the gauge to him in hopes he can fix it.. I down 40bucks for shipping there and back but If it can be fixed then its worth it
