My speedometer stopped working as well as the turn signal cancel. I have no idea what happen. Is this a cable issue of a speed sensor issue? Thanks

Here is a test for the speed sensor:

Welcome to the Best Goldwing Site on the Internet jswantz!

I'd say tricky got you fixed up! Both functions are linked together through the speed sensor. Could also be the cable.

Welcome to the forum, jswantz! The drive gear on the front axle may have worn out, due to lack of grease. That was the problem with my bike when I bought it. You can get just the gear, or the whole drive assembly. The gear is about $15, the drive assembly about $75.

First and easiest thing to check is the speedometer cable, if this breaks then none of the items you mentioned work either.

My '85 1200 Aspencade has the digital dash. The spedometer "cable" is electrical wires.

If this seven year old thread solved a problem that you were having perhaps you could elaborate.
