My Daytona 955i speedo gave up the ghost a few months back, after a week after I had a new front tyre fitted ...
After taking the sensor unit off the bike, I wasn't suprised to find some damage. Most likely caused by poor workmanship re-fitting the wheel.
For those of you who don't know whats inside ... The wheel drives a magnetic circle, engaging it with metal tabs. My wheel had been badly, fitted, and the corresponding tabs in the magnetic circle had broken off.
The magnetic circle was now broken into 4 parts !
I thought I would basically try and glue them back together. But I wasn't sure what glue would work when sticking a magnet back together. Unfortunately, each of the pieces had become magnets in their own right, and did not "stick" to eachother. So I tried cleaning the parts, and using superglue. They appears to be plenty of space between the ring, and the extenal casing, but the ring is supposed to rotate on a shaft, so this clearence is crucial.
I managed to stick the 2 largest pieces together, then the 2 smaller pieces, making sure I got the inner circumference as close as possible to the intended size. After re-greasing the moving parts, I put the unit back on the bike.
So far the fix has worked for the last 800 miles. So I'm hopeful I won't have to buy a new unit.
Its worth a go if yours is broken. A tube of superglue is not very expensive. Just don't stick your fingers together !
Same with mine, but I was lucky to notice the speedo wasn't working within a couple of hundred yards of leaving the tyre place. I took it back and they took the wheel off and found the rotating magnet had seized. They were able to free it off. It was greased up, put back together and it is fine now. It seems very sensitive. You'd think the magnet would be available on its own without having to buy the complete drive at £80 a time.
VAT was added - bastards - lol - kick a man while he's down eh?
Still she's up for sale now..£4,000 cash, less than 6,000 miles new tyres , Fanbazar screen, rack, all green accessory bits, alarmed, speedo drive, superb legal QUILL, just serviced and early first MOT...got my eye on a lime green kwacker
Weird, a Chester Honda dealer told me to sell privately and it was well worth over my asking £4,000 as he didn't like PX'ing, then a superb North Wales dealer offered me £4,000 against a new Honda..but saw this Kwacker today on the Wirral and fell in love..but he can't do a part ex as he's full up with stock - bummer
