hi guys, recently i bought the SIP rev counter for my SS90, everything is fine except the speedometer (which is to tell the speed) RPM, and TEMP is working fine.. i change everything, gear on the hub, and speedo cable, but still the speedometer doesn't work.. i try to spin the cable manually using drill in low speed but no reading on the speedometer..

when i 1st time to fit the speedo, the speedometer works even my bike still on the stand and reach 90km/h, but when i try to test drive it it stop working..
already check the wiring, everything was fine.. already contact the SIP but still no response..

The speedo needle has two functions. It works as a tachometer (engine RPM) or speedometer (Km/h). Have you set it up correctly to work as a speedo??

hi,

Have you checked the input on the speedo?

for the sip speedo there are two available sources for speed, either the normal wire or a electric cable.

Check the menus and make sure it is set on normal speedo wire

Are you using a resistor spark plug?
