1986 gl1200a odmeter not working

Post by Kelro01 » Wed Sep 17, 2014 8:36 pm

I just had new tires installed on my 86 GL1200A and noticed that the odometer is no longer working.
Can this be because something not installed correctly when front tire was re-installed? Coincidence?
The speedometer works fine. I'm not sure what drives the odo. Any help you can provide is apprecieated.

To my knowledge,the ODO is driven from the spedo.Either a mechanical drive or a electrical pulse.
As long as the spedo is working so should the ODO.
