Speedometer not working most of the time

It works off and on more off though. Dash lights up and odometer is lit but no speedometer or miles added. It has racked up 4.4 miles on the last tank of gas. Tightened battery terminals. Check green connector under tank all seems well. Any other things to check. 1300 r 06

Jack it up and look for pulses from the VSS.
+3 volts to +5 volts, about 70 pulses per rear wheel revolution..

Google this vtxoa: speedo, vss

Primarily a 1800 failure but some 1300 had failures also. Same part for 1300, 1800

2005 1300c Red, Mustang seat, HK 2.5 straights. Leds for safety-front & back. 192,882 VTX miles

I have some info on 1300 Step by Step, more info on 1800 Step by Step due to higher VSS failure rate.
Check voltage and Ground at VSS connector.
Check pulses at VSS connector or at speedo connector.

My riding buddy had the same problem last year. I had to replace his spedo sensor. It is located behind the coolant reservoir . Easy to replace, just 1 or 2 bolts and a plug in connection. Works great now..

You must have the hands of a young Asian raccoon.
