I am headed back to the dealer today to take the next step on the speedometer issue, which will be to look at the previously mentioned gear and road sensors.
It has been approx 800 miles since they swapped out the original speedometer, sometimes it works normally, other times it sticks at various speeds (mostly 60 and 10), sometimes it will reset when the bike is turned off and on, sometimes not. It is fairly annoying as it seems to fail only when I am in an area of 'high traffic enforcement' and have no idea how fast I am going. I am not so sure that a cop will accept my speedometer warrantee issue story. probably write me up extra for the BS story!
