Well dealer said the magnet fell off the drive axle shaft , and is junk? Does this sound right i thought it was the pickup or cap that went over the axle that was going bad? He said the magnet is on back order?

YEAH, HE IS RIGHT, THE WAY THOSE WORK IS THE SAME WAY MY JETSKI PICKS UP IT'S SPEED, BASICALLY A MAGNET THAT PASSES PAST SOME STRANDS OF WIRE, PRODUCES SMALL AMOUNTS OF VOLTAGE, WHICH INTERN IS CONVERTED TO GIVE YOU YOUR SPEED, RATHER SIMPLE, I CAN SEE THAT IT WOULD BREAK EASILY, BUT AS FAR AS A MAGNET BREAKING, NOT SO SURE ABOUT THAT

Had my sled in to get a new pull cord thing the other day. The mechanic opened the cowl and pulled on the plug ( i think it goes to the speedo) and it came right out. He said a lot of them are coming out of the crate only plugged in half way (not quite until it 'clicks').

If yours is like that it'll wiggle out over time. You should check to be sure that it's clicked in.
