TPS help

I understand the tps on a 98 Fazer get a signal from the speed sensor as well as input from the carb to control the ignition timing.
If the speed sensor was removed but tps sensor on carb left in place, would this affect the day to day running of the bike and if so what would the result be.

Yamaha FZS 600 Fazer 1998

Hi Fastasfuck123 how yea goin:smile

Without looking into a full work shop manual,i do believe that the speedo sensor on this early model doesn't have any connection to the TPS or the CDI so if the speedo sensor has failed(as they often did on this first to use this type electronic front wheel pick up)it wont effect the day to day running of this bike. Good Luck

Thanks kcmc.
Had some info from dealer pretty much saying the same, said the rev counter would repeatedly come up with fault code (needle would swing up to 5k or something sim)
I was just concerned that it may go into limp mode and retard ig so it wouldnt rev out
Not been on here for sometime, getting like play school in general topic
