If the speedo is broke, all you have to do is disconnect the black wire on pin 4 of the 16 pin connector - NOTE: the black wire is the kill wire - it is used by the speed limiter function of the speedo to limit speed in reverse - with the wire disconnected, it will run as fast backwards as forwards, but to the best of my knowledge, just unplugging the speedo will not kill spark.

The ignition is AC excited (does not need a battery to run) - the black wire is a kill wire - it goes to the key switch, handlebar kill switch, throttle safety switch and speedo - disconnected at the CDI unit, it eliminates all methods to kill the engine
