mine did that, intermittent failure... til complete failure after fork seal rebuild. drive thingie on the front wheel? shaft? in dash? that is why they put a tack on it, so when the speedo fails, can still have a clue how fast a rider is going. if blowing past ppl... probably speeding, if being blow past... probably going too slow for traffic conditions. 3000 R's @ ~60 MPH? 1500 R's @ ~30MPH in 5th gear. some things are not worth the hassle/expense to fix. gas tank gauge sender??? unavailable now.... so ... try to keep track of mileage.... 6 gallon tank ~200 miles??? @ 34 mpg? half a tank...time to think about putting more gas in the machine as pushing 800# machine even a SHORT ways to the gas pump is a 3 MAN job (don't ask)
