Default Speedometer is dead

Hey guys, need some help. Searched but no luck. Swapped the taillight over the weekend for the chrome glow led, put the new relay in, everything there is good. But now, no speedometer. It does bounce on startup like normal. Anyone had this or have any suggestions on where to start? I checked the manual, all I could find was some voltages on the speedo sensor.
Thanks

If it lights up and sweeps(neutral light, brights etc.) then it's getting power so I'd see where it picks up the feed for speed. Thinking something just got disconnected when you were doing the wiring...

That was my thought as well, I figure if the dash is good most likely not the board, I'm going to try and find the speed sensor and do some fiddling.

There is a connection under the seat for the speedometer. If you get a speed healer, it's usually installed there. I'd be checking to make sure you didn't dislodge the connection somehow. Check out this thread for pictures of the connector under the seat. https://www.yamahastarstryker.com/18...yesterday.html If it isn't that, you at least have a starting point to trace back to the speedo sensor

Well gents... Checked the battery 12.6v. The manual says speed sensor should test out between 0.6v to 4.6v as the wheel is rotated. Mine is staying pegged at 4.8v.
Anyone familiar with these types of sensors? Should it be at 4.8 then lower, or 0.6 then raise? Why would it stay flat?

Thanks

I think you didn't perform procedure correctly. Starts at .6v when you turn the key on, then as you rotate the rear wheel slowly it will increase to 4.8v when you have gone one complete turn. Then will repeat as you slowly make next revolution

I appreciate your response preacher, I'm pretty clear on what's supposed to happen. My question is for anyone who knows how these sensors work why it would stay at 4.8 if it's base is 0.6.

Not trying to insult your intelligence, this is what I think:
It's sounds as if the relay you installed is sending 5.0v to the sensor when power is on. My reasoning is:The factory turn signal relay is tied into the yellow/white wire from the speed sensor (with a solid white wire) which is part of the cancelling feature.

That is helpful, thank you. I was curious what the 2 unused wires were for. Must have shorted the speed sensor. Got a new one on order so we'll see. Thanks for the info.
