I have a 2006 sportsman 500ho

The speedometer and odometer does not work
The all wheel drive works and the hour/tachometer works fine as we'll


I cleaned the speed sensor wire and check connections

Do you think it's just a spent speed sensor?
(Best place to get a new one) I am in canada

Suggestions before I buy one?


Also forgive me as I am new to ATVs and not the mechanically gifted
But when I had my wheels off the bike today I noticed the breaks are rubbing on all the tires making them hard to turn with my hands..... Seems odd they would all be stiff..... Besides the obvious, should i just lossen them up?


Thanks

I guess the speed sensors go all the time, and after a ton of research have found that if most of your speedo works, except the needle, it's the hall sensor. I just ordered one today online at partzilla.com for 53 bucks.

As for the brakes, check your resevoir and make sure it's clean. If not, I'd recommend to replace fluid. The return for your brake fluid could be clogged If that doesn't work, check your calipers. They could be stuck/seized.
