    Dumb Speedo Question

    When your bike is going backwards, does you speedometer show a speed?

    Yes, I know it's dumb. That information is in the title

    Yes, it does. The sensor above the transmission shaft “sees” gear teeth passing by, but doesn’t know or care which direction they’re going.

    The speed sensor just counts pulses, direction of rotation isn't measured.
