Thread: Broken speedometer 2017 EXC 250

    Default Broken speedometer 2017 EXC 250

    Hi folks!

    Unfortunately I smashed my mask and sadly the speedometer as well some days ago.
    Is there, by any chance, a way to repair these?

    Can I have some advice from people who went through similar event?

    Word of advice to everyone - do invest on a protection for your speedometer as it is very expensive and fragile. Otherwise, think about relocating it to the back of the handlebar. Alternatively, think of getting a protective bar in front of headlight (like one of those Mario Roman retractable pull straps).

    Any advice received with thanks in advance!

    Kind regards,

    Tiago

    I just took mine off before I broke it (and that last tree I hit would have destroyed it for sure). I added a hour meter to track ride time and maintenance.

    Thank you for your suggestions.
    If I go for a Trailtech one, could I choose just the Endurance? It's cheaper and more low profile.
    Just don't know if it comes ready to install on the same original bracket and if it's just a plug and play device.

    On 2 stroke KTM confirmed they can only pre-load your kilometers mileage and not hours.|
    They charge $278 CAD for replacement speedo here in Canada and they ask for your mileage if you knew it before smashing.
    If you didn't then it's a guess.
    4 stroke might be different if something gets stored in the ECU but I'm doubtful.
    Since all I needed mine was for maintenance hours I just bought an hour meter.

    It's way yo expensive... Here it's around the same.
    I've ordered an hour meter as well.
    Also, been checking on chinese shopping app and there seems to be some interesting replacements there. But I'm not interested in some features that most seem to have, like indicator lights, oil alert or gas level....

    Still on the lookout to solve this problem while waiting for some parts and oils to arrive.

    Cheers!

    Does anyone know if previous ktm model's speedometer are compatible with 2017 exc models?

    I'm wondering if getting - if anyway available - a 2010-2013 husaberg speedometer and fit it to my 2017 could be a cheaper and at still good looking speedometer.

    I would compare parts fiche for those years and see if same part # for the wheel speed sensor and magnet. Not sure how well you could see but try and compare to see if harness connectors look same.

    Putting in kilometers is easy when you reset the unit. However the hours cant be loaded onto a new unit. Bikes with an ECU have hours logged that can be read out with the dealer tool.
