Hey Kev

You can buy a 2nd hand one from Fleabay or a new one from Fowlers... and fit it... had to do this for my Ace as it died a death - cable was fine but the speedo drive was fooked - it does come off the wheel as a separate part. On saying that, when mine went the clocks stopped counting up as well, i.e. no speed shown, no miles being covered.

Just had a simialar issue with my CBR. The speed sensor completely went. This is an electro magnetic reader that sits in the engine just behind the cylinders and reads off the gears. I couldn't find one on fleabay (rearer then rocking horse sh**) I had to get a new one fitted. I got charged 2 hours labour, which wasn't too bad.

This is what the little blighter looks like. It's bolted to the top of the engine and is connected to the odometer via 3 wires.










The cost for that was £120 + vat Shocked Shocked


£207 and some pennies to get it done.





I hope yours is a cheaper fix bud. Let us know how you get on.
