    2007 Speed Triple 1050 just got it. CEL P0500 Vehicle speed sensor?

    Just bought this bike last night and really like it. After riding around and acting like a hooligan the CEL came on. When I got home I hooked up a normal car code reader (Love that I can do this) and got a P0500 code. The display says it is a Vehicle speed sensor. Is this a common code? Where is this sensor located? Ideas on what triggered the code?

    Thanks

    The speed sensor on these is on the top of the transmission, under the throttle bodies and above the sprocket cover.

    You should pick up a copy of TuneECU which will give you a better idea of what's going on. It's Free, and all you need is a decent ODBII cable.

    Yes, a Bunch of them. It's as if this bike was made for doing wheelies.
    Could that have caused this?

    Not sure what I would plug the cable into. I race cars and have two pretty good OBD2 code readers. Do you have a link to a seperate cord that I can download an app? Or perhaps I should use a bluetooth reader?

    TuneECU is a computer program. Cables come with a usb end.

    Not likely.....I've known a lot of these bikes that have spent half their lives with the front wheel in the air.
