I changed up my springs/fork oil today and as I pulled the wheel off, the speed sensor dropped something out of it that was covered in what I thought was dirt. I didnt worry about it until I had everything swapped out and was ready to put it back together.
I figure it is a magnet for the speedo (I guess I was right) and I put the biggest pieces back in and tighten everything down. The speedo works, and is accurate! Imagine that.
I do a ride and the new springs kick ass, but I noticed that the front brakes are dragging a lot. I used to be able to coast on a flat street in neutral without slowing for a decent amount of time, now I loose speed a lot faster.
I looked at the axle bolt thing and it is INSIDE the bottom of the fork, not flush with it, which I think it should be.
Like that picture, it is flush. Mine is inside the bottom of the fork about 1/4 inch or more.
So I come home and take it apart again and the magnet is even more broken, so I pull more out, put it back together and the axle is still inside the fork, and the speedo doesnt work.
