Default Dire need of front end pics!! Also speedo help!

Hello all! Those of you may know my bike from the previous threads I posted regarding my current project, my 01 f4i. The whole front end was garbage and I need to get a detailed picture of the fairing stay bracket itself, and where the headlight mounts to the stay bracket. I would really appreciate it if anyone could do this for me. The manual pics SUCK!!!


Also, a few days ago I went to turn my bike on and i noticed that i wasnt getting the fi light, or the tach counting down like its supposed to. It just gives me the time, and whenever i plug it in, it counts down, just not when i turn the key on. It does run fine, im just not getting anything from the speedo. Any help is really appreciated!!

speedo cuts in and out? Most likely the speedo sensor. not too bad to replace, just need a bunch of extensions and small hands

Do you think it could be a loose connection? If so where would it be loose at? I've read on a few threads that it was loose connections but I can't find where it plugs in. Do you have any pics?

speedo sensor is on the left side of the engine block sitting right on top. This is what it looks like but obviously only the top part is outside the engine block.

Speedo sensor is the same on most honda cbr's. Im useing a sensor off a 2000 rc51 and it works fine and is direct bolt-up. I remember having a hard time finding one for my f4i so its just a small help out. (100% known fit is rc51, bolt on and plug is the same)

Everything that has power has some sort of ground. On honda the ground wire is green, its not the usual black wire.
