Hey all.

The speedo sensor i am using is from a 2009 zx6r. it has a yellow, pink and black wire

per the diagram linked below

the black = 12v
the pink = 6v
the yellow = pulse

per the link below from the sv speedo wires

the orange = 12v
the black = 6v
the pink = pulse

i am using this

https://sites.google.com/site/s1sv650nupgrade/Home
and this;
http://www.soflasportbikes.com/forum/kawasaki-motorcycles/228063-2000-zx6r-speed-sensor-pinout.html

information to wire the speedo sensor to my 2006 sv650 with a gsxr front end.

i have tried the wire combination according to these wiring specs and no matter how fast i spin the wheel the speedo doesnt do anything. I have also tried all 12 wire combinations possible just to be sure...

I have large magnets (8) in each of the 8 rotor holes and am holding the sensor by hand to test it. I can feel the magnets pulling on the sensor as they pass but the speedo doesnt register. what am i doing wrong???'

please help...i thought i was through all the hard parts once the front end was on....

Is your sensor used? Where did you get it?

I ask this, because I bought a used one off ebay for dirt cheap. It didn't work. So, I bought a new sensor, wired that one up and it worked. I've been using that one for the past three years or so.

The sensor is used from ebay so i dont know for sure if it works.

With the above configuration

no magnet:

supposed 12V connection: 11.74

Supposed 6V connection: 9.2

Supposed "Pulse" Connection: .01

with magnet:

supposed 12V connection: 11.77

Supposed 6V connection: 8.46

Supposed "Pulse" Connection: .01

I will post up pictures after work.....im getting to the point where I dont want a speedo bc this is so annoying.

If i have to get a new sensor would you suggest a gsxr one? generic hall effect?

I just tested the SV one out yesterday and it goes from 0V to 5V.

There are 3 wires- one is ground, one is constant +12V to feed the sensor and the third is one that should be charged with 6V (although I get 5) when the magnet is in front of the sensor and 0V when it isn't.

yeah, three leads but one is ground so there are only 2 connections to measure voltage across. If you disconnect the speed sensor by the airbox, with the bike on, touch the black/- lead on your voltmeter to the ground pin on the connector that goes to the harness - not the one that goes to the sensor (center pin on mine - black/white i think) and the red/+ lead to one of the other connections. If it doesn't read 12 volts steady (as the wheel spins), try the other one. One of them should. My 12 volt lead is orange/red.

If that succeeds, you can then try measuring the sensor by reading the voltage on the other pin (not the 12v one). The problem is, you will have to read it while the whole thing is connected because the 12V is what feeds the 6V when the sensor gets activated. You will have to either splice into the wires or create something like this:



Or I suppose you could pop that 6V pin out of the connector that runs to the speed sensor, attach your + voltmeter lead to that, and attach the negative lead to a ground elsewhere?

I would toss that used sensor and order a new hall effect sensor. And I say that because that's what I had to do to get my speedometer to work.

OK problem solved with a GSXR speedo sensor. I have a hall effect on the way too but for now this works.

I am laughing because there is another thread on how to do this install running when almost everything needed is linked above....so here I will spell it out for the nextt person who is having trouble.

1.) Complete front end swap
http://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=59000
2.) Source a hall effect or gsxr speedo sensor. Some say you can use more brands but as you can see from above the Kawi didnt work.
http://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=135901
3.) On the rotors, install 4 magnets for 03 - 04 or 8 magnets for 05+ SV650s also make sure they are in the right direction (all pulling at the sensor).
http://www.svrider.com/forum/showthread.php?t=146669
4.) Splice the wires on the SV and sensor according to the diagrams available. Solder and shrink wrap for best look and longevity.

Your 12v line should read close to 12
Your 6v signal should read close to zero without a magnet and 6 with
5.) Mount the wired sensor 5mm from the passing magnets and you are all set.

I HAVE PICTURES BUT MY FANTASTIC PHONE WILL NOT EMAIL, UPLOAD, TEXT OR OTHERWISE TRANSFER ANY DIGITAL MEDIA AT ALL AT THIS TIME. OUTSTANDING.
