Default Can someone help me, Please? **Jumpy Spedo**

Hi guys. It seems, for some reason, that this is the only place I can post for now so please jump in.

I got an 08 victory vision yesterday. Drives wonderfully. I love it it. 1732cc, up from my vstar 650 I was riding.

I dont know a whole lot about motorcycles in regards to parts and all of that. So here is my story..

I was riding on the road and my speakers sound like they somewhat shorted, got louder than quieter, did that a couple times so I just turned them off. I look down at the speedometer and its jumpy. Going from 0 to 15 to 20. Then to 30 to 50 to 20 to 20, etc. Just being sporadic. Thought it was a one time thing and let it go. I tried it again today, same thing (this time I didn't have the radio on at all). Sometimes it just leaves me with q zero mph reading, even on the highway.. I'm not sure what is happening.

Reading other forums in here it sounds like a speed sensor issue. How do i fix this? Please dumb it down a bit for me.. 😕

Thanks so much in advance for all of your assistance

- Lexi

Check the wiring for loose connections. Vics are notorious for loose battery cable bolts. Make certain they are tight and if none there, place lock washers under their heads. Do that and come back with the results.
Not all that familiar with Visions - if it has a volt meter, turn the key on and it should read in the 12s. With the engine running, it should read in the 14s.

I will do that hopefully sometime this week. Is there any reason that this also coincides with the radio freaking out? The radio will blast and then get very low the next second, in sync with the speedo needle. It flys up when the music blasts then shoots back down afterward?

Loose battery connections cause many weird things on our bikes. It sounds silly, but it is 100 percent true.

I myself don't understand why I had less battery loose connections on my HD's compared to so many I read about for the Vicrory's but anyway you will find a manual for your bike in the link https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https...gtfDohyIB7sv_o

Battery is located right at the front of the bike in the open behind the front wheel at the bottom. Wiggle the wires and if there is movement on the posts of the battery you just need to tighten them up.
