A weird thing happened today. I took the Vulcan to work today and had to run an errand in the middle of the day. Heading out for the errand I suddenly noticed the speedometer wasnt registering. After 3-4 miles of freeway driving I got to my destination and went in. Coming back out I saw the speedo cable laying under the bike; it was still attached to the front axle and I guess I had dragged it down the freeway. I tried to put it back but apparently never quite got it threaded as it came off again in a few hundred yards. Luckily it fell on my foot peg and I was able to keep it from dragging on the ground. Before coming come I screwed it on again Nd this time it stayed on for the 5 mile ride home.

Has this happened to you? Is it time to replace the cable? It's banged up and scratched from its ride on the freeway.

If the speedo still works. I would just tighten it with some pliers. You might want to relube it.

Yeah, I experienced the same more than once. I finally put some Lock-Tite on the threads.... no problem since.
Good Luck
