FXR2 and FXR3 had front wheel driven cable operated mechanical speedometers.  FXR4 made the change to electronic speedo with the sensor in the transmission.  Whenever you see one of those "bouncing around" the first, easiest, free thing to try is to pop the sensor out of the transmission housing and wipe it off.  Hopefully in so doing you only find normal years-of-gunk collected rather than the metallic shards of a transmission that is a failed attempt at becoming a Transformer.
