Speed Sensor location on a '05 636?

I'm installing a speedohealer and I don't have a svc manual so I'm not 100% sure where the Speed Sensor is located. I looked under the tank while installing my PC3 and couldn't find the black 3-prong plug the instructions mentioned. Is it run next to the front sprocket cover? Maybe somewhere else?

Thanks.

I understand the connector is the same, but the location on the 636 is different. In fact, it's different between 2004 and 2005.

Look at the front sprocket cover. See the black sensor on this cover. It is the speedo sensor. Follow it up the wire and at the end you will find the sensor plug. Mine was on the top of the backside of the motor where the PCV hose came up and connected to the airbox.

Thanks Sneaky, but once again you're talking about a zx10r. There is no sensor on the front sprocket cover of the 2005 ZX6R. I know this because I took the cover off to change the sprocket.

Actually I was talking about my 03/04 636. Thre is no sensor on the counter sprocket cover at all?

If not then they moved the sensor to the tranny, which is the way honda does the F4i. Read off of the output shaft internally.

Dont know what to say. I will look someplace for ya quick...

Here is the sensor 21176 it sits on the top of the block right where the cylinder heads meet the crankcase. Hoe this helps...

05 ZX6R/RR speed sensor location. The connector is not the same as a ZX10R.

This is just great. The plugs on the speedohealer don't match the speed sensor. The Sensor pins are inline, while the speedohealer pins are in a triangle like a 3-pin power outlet. That means I can either get matching plugs thru Kawi (not likely) or pull the tank completely off and get down in there with a soldering iron. Considering the season is almost over up here in WA I think I'll just deal with my new-found 20% speedo error for a few rides while I track down those plugs.

Iw as going to say the speedo healer site said they did not have a pulg and play for the 05 636 yet as Kawasaki changed the plug this year.

I got lucky, pulled the healer off of the 636 before I sold it and it was a direct fit on my 10R. I just had to clear it, find the error amount thru some road calculations and walla corrected speedo all the way up to 170ish.
