Customer Question
Just took 2012 VX...

Just took 2012 VX Cruiser Waverunner out, it had been off lift and pulled up to shore waiting to take out. It showed zero mph while running on lake a little before taking out. rpms were showing going up and down, but just "0 mph" on.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Marine Mechanic should know?

It was working last time I had it out, but its been a few weeks. I did not change the panel myself

L​ook for a little wheel near the back of the ride plate under the ski. It likely has some debris or something sticking in it. Free it up and your speedo should be back.
