Does anyone know of a good shop to take an SV to that wont charge to much or try and rip me off? I live in Montgomery Co, Maryland

Noticed it stooped working last week when my bike ran out of gas and i was stranded on side of road. Tried fixing it then by reading posts that people with similar problems had. Checked all the stuff... And out of dumb luck it started working but then stooped again, then started up again for about two days. Now that its the weekend I've been without it for 3 days now. I just tried to mess with the wires in the headlight like i did last time but no luck, didn't see anything messed up either.

Basically to make a long story short i need someone else to look at it for me. Any suggestions?

Chances are it's your "rotor" for your speed sensor that's the problem. They are apparently made of magnetic guano and disintegrate quite easily. Mine went a year ago and replaced it a couple months ago. The "teeth" or "fins" snap off and turn to dust. Part 15 is what you probably need.

i concur that part# 15 is the culprit. i'mn about to install my third one and have a backup sitting in the garage for the next time. i guess it's just one of those things.

not too bad when it's a $10 part.

But if it's not working, then you're not racking up any miles on the bike.

Hmmmmmmm.

Wrong, yes, but at least you know you're bikes not getting any older. Huh? Don't ask me.

I'm beat to shxt tonite.

How hard is it to replace this part? What is involved? DO i have to take the front wheel off to get to this part?

yup, you have to take off the front wheel. The housing for the sensor will come off also. Just be careful when you put it back together to make sure the lugs mesh or you can easily break it. I greased mine with lithium grease and seems to be holding up for a year now.
