1997 Kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja speedometer not working

My speedo clock has stopped working and is just reading 0 all the time. I bought a new cable which is for the bike and still no dice grandma. I have checked the cable connected to the speedometer and it flickers when spun. The front drive also turns the cable. It seems that the drive doesn't engage in the speedometer properly when connected to the front drive. I'm at a loss anyone have any ideas.

SOURCE: how do i change the speedometer cable on my 95gpz 1100

First you must buy the cable.Then use a pair of pliers to unscrew the end of the old cable from both sides or a screw driver if it uses a screw to hold it.To unscrew the old cable from near the wheel it is easy I believe.But at your speedometer it is not.You must loose the screws that hold the whole assembly to their bracket so that you can lift them and see the other end of the cable.Remember the routing of the old cable to put the new one exactly through the same route.After you install in place the new one first try to plug in the lower side near the wheel.Try pushing from the other end the inside wire so that it clicks in the other side.Then keep your front wheel lifted and spin it and check that the other end on the speedometer is turning around.Then plug that end to the speedometer and the whole assembly to its bracket and you are done.

You can't with out braking a couple little parts inside the speedo. You can give it a try I have heard of it being done without any damage. Here in my state it's against the law to do this.

SOURCE: kdx 200 clutch not engaging properly

The clutch in your bike is a wet clutch. There is a lot of hyrdostatic friction even when the clutch is released completely. I think a large factor is the type, age and condition of oil. Perhaps something as simple as an oil change would help.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 kdx 200. bike starts and idles

the cluck need to be looked at as its draging its not fully disengaged witch is what makes the bike pull forwards when you put it in gear have a look at the free play in the cluch cable and if there is a lot take some out this will help to disengage the cluch a bit more but dont take all the free play out you need a little left in say 1/4 of an inch is plenty at the handelbars

SOURCE: 2005 kdx 200 clutch not engaging properly

Assuming the clutch handle on the handlebar is adjusted properly, only three things will cause the problem.

  • Very dirty oil in the gearbox. The grit is causing the clutch to drag. Change oil, ride for an hour in the city then change oil again to flush out the grit.
  • Worn clutch lever (at gearbox). Lever is not moving the pusher far enough to fully disengage the clutch. A new lever would be needed.
  • Synthetic lubricant ( or oils with "special" additives), was put in gearbox. 10w40 motor oil should be used in the gearbox. Synthetics can swell the cork on the friction plates causing the clutch to drag. New friction plates will fix the problem.
The current amount of clutch drag is not enough to harness the power of an engine rev. That is why the clutch seems okay at higher revs. Please rate my answer. Thanks.
