Hello,

I have searched for some ideas on the forums, but do not see to find the exact problem, Maybe i am using the wrong key words.

In any event, I have a 2002 Sportsman 400. About a year ago, my speedo and odometer quit working. The odometer light still does turn on. For what i use it for, it is not a big deal and runs good otherwise. But if i sell/trade it, that will need to be fixed.

I see the sensor readily for sale on Ebay in the $60 range. How can i tell if the speed sensor (Hall Effect Sensor) is the problem or if it is in the Odometer itself?

Also, I seem to tear/destroy the CV Boots (on all wheels) on a regular basis. I have to drive through brush and clay mud puddles often. Is anyone aware of fixes/replacements that do not require the CV joints to be disassembled?

Thanks for your help.

Had an 02 400 sportsman and the speedometer quit working, replacing the sensor solved the problem. Very easy to change, just follow the wire up into the headlight pod and swap out.
