A gixxer question for the racers

Everyone I know that has a GSXR set up for the track has a nonfunctional speedo.

Why is that and how do I make mine work.

I have an '04 750

Recently my tach has stopped working also, I have checked the fuses and all the wiring I can see and there are no obvious problems, anybody have ideas?


Thanks,
the Bee

Check the little white plug at the back of the meter. Also check your fuse.

As far as the speedo, check if the drive is still bolted on to the output shaft of the transmission and that the speedo pick up on the c/s cover is there and is plugged in.

Hope this helps, if not, give me a shout Tuesday and I'll walk you through a few things to check.

The way to fix it is to buy a Honda obviously.
