Anyone have ever have your speedo needle sit in the odometer area after a battery change. Now it sits below the little post and can't get past it. Is there some sort of reset to do I have to buy another one? Pulling my hair out trying to figure it out.


A new one on me. I know that the speedo needle can be affected by the speedo drive but I'm sure that's mechanical & usually goes haywire when the front wheel is removed. A previous bike (a Honda) used to do odd things when the reg/rec failed, but I've not come across the issue you have.

Hopefully someone will be along shortly who kniows a bit more about these bikes than I do.
No matter how smart you are you can never convince someone stupid that they are stupid.


Tks, new one on me as well. I was told a spike in power during a battery change can cause it and I just changed the battery.
