Anybody had a go at repairing their speedo themselves??? I'm assuming it's a problem with the actual magnets in the front hub.........are they expensive??? Is the whole job best left to my local shop??

Cheers for any responses..

In the process of having mine repaired now. When putting the front wheel back on if you don't line up the tabs in the speedo sensor, they'll be making contact and will work ... for awhile and then quit. Lucky (I was informed today) that the Burgman 400 is one of the few Suzuki bikes where you do not have to replace the whole speedometer sensor. Labor cost, unknown (yet). Parts to repair sensor, around $30.

Hi Gary - you really should invest in a Service Manual! :wink:

1. Loosen the axle pinch bolt and then remove (to avoid the speed sensor wires being pulled tight in what follows).

2. Loosen axle shaft nut.

3. Jack up front of scoot - careful now! (just so the front wheel is clear of the ground enough for the wheel to clear).

4. Draw out the axle shaft and remove the front wheel

Be careful of the speed sensor it is vulnerable! :wink:
