V-Strom specific discussion / Re: DL650 speed sensor

Thanks both. I've cut the wires near the sensor and found they are all OK up to the connector. I'm puzzled that there is no connectivity within the sensor, but that may be correct. I'll have to order some more heat-shrink insulation now!

The problem could be with the wrong wheel being fitted and the sensor not engaging with the wheel - answers to my wheel problem may resolve the speed sensor one.

V-Strom specific discussion / Re: Front wheel problems
« Last post by Andy52 on Today at 12:06:17 »
Thanks for your input everyone. I've checked the stanchions and they appear straight - rotating them does not cause the gap at the bottom to change. The wheel does not have slots on the left side of the hub for the speed sensor to engage with, which might be the reason it does not work. Could the wheel be from a later model? It's the only explanation that makes sense to me. If the later wheel is wider across the bearings, then it's not going to fit properly. Were the axle & bearing size increased on the later model? That would explain the axle being smaller than the bearing inner races.

Photos of the left and right sides of the wheel below, left side with axle inserted. The dark ring round the axle is the gap! The right side has an oil seal.

V-Strom specific discussion / electric fault
« Last post by king1 on Today at 00:25:23 »
The usual connector fault has reared it's ugly head again, for the head lights
You know, the one under the air box, that is not weather proof

Is there a waterproof connector you can replace it with?

Otherwise going to rewire the whole block and get rid of it

I thought I had sorted this problem out

Thanks
