i bought my wife a nice 08 h1 . it only has 40 hrs on it and is in show room condition but i noticed that the speedo doesnt work .
i cant find anything in the shop manual about the speedo.
ive tried cleaning the plug in on the cluster and unplugging the battery and waiting 30 mins then reconnected it.

do you guys have any tips or tricks to solve this?
everything on the cluster works fine . the mph just shows zero and never goes up. evrything else is fine.
where is the speed sensor located ?
anything i can check ?

is this a common problem?

thanks for any info

Start checking for bare wires around your steering column.

I did some testing per the instructions in my shop manual.
When I tested the speed sensor , it showed 6 volts on the volt wire but on the sending wire, it only showed 8 volts and never varied any when I moved the atv back and forth. The manual says it should vary 0-12v when the quad is moved back and forth .
I can hook my test leads to the signal wire and the ground wire and tap them togather and my speedo will show numbers.
With all this , I'm thinking my sensor is bad.

I'm gonna bite the bullit and order a new speed sensor .
