View Full Version : 03 VRod Speedo not working then engine stalls

Hi, New to this forum and anxious to resolve a problem on my just purchased 2003 Vrod. Searched thru 1130.com and saw tons of posts concerning the same symptoms that I have. On my third time riding the Vrod, the speedometer stopped working and the engined stalled many times when I down shifted and came to a stop. Had to feather the throttle to keep it going. Also saw the fuel gauge drop really fast, third of a tank gone in 28 miles!

Any suggestions? Few posts stating the VSS was the problem.

HAve you noticed that you are idling low all the time? The Vehicle Speed Sensor could also be the culprit for sure. If that is faulty it could indeed produce those results.
