Hi all

I am a new member, recently bought a hornet 250 1998.
Two days ago suddenly the speedometer, odometer and distance interval stopped working, where and what should I look into first to troubleshoot problem? Plan to open it up coming weekend....

I am also planning to replace the spark plugs with NGK iridium ones but was not sure if CR8EH-IX or CR9EH-IX should be used??? I'm located in Auckland, NZ where the temperature is between 0 - 18 degree Celsius in winter and 15 - 25 degree Celsius in summer

Thank you so much

The speedo cable is driven by a small plastic connector that fits over the drive sprocket securing nut.
It's lightly that the plastic connect will be worn and not turning the speedo cable.

Pretty sure I use CR9EH-IX plugs for my 250.

Hope your enjoying your bike, the 250's are terrific little machines.

Woaaa...thank you so much for the replies to both of you guys kenny & KANE :D okay i will look it up and let you guys know the update

Okay CR9EH-IX it is then..

Yup so far I enjoyed the hornet so much, traveling around 50kms everyday on & off motorway plus traffic filtering LOL

Ohh... I had a problem with fuel petcock or tap, the engine was loosing power and stalling like it was running out of petrol then found out the problem was the tap. I kept it midway between OFF & ON and no problems so far
