Hey ya'll I just replaced the cable and the speedo is not reading any suggestions?
Yeah that is usually the second thing to go after the cable if not lubed regularly. You can remove the cable from it and use a needle greaser to get some grease in there but the best way is to remove the wheel and grease it that way.Mine was the gear box this time. Ordered the whole assembly, bearings, and seals. Waiting for a nice day to install.
If you are scaring yourself with the mind numbing speed, relax because the speedo reads ~10% high with the OEM 100/90-19 front tire. LOL :hitanykeyWell found out the gear at the wheel was caked in mud and muck now it works downside is now I know how fast I was going. LOL :0
More reasons to learn to wrench your own ride.Well to update I will now be the only person doing the work on my ride as the MORON at the local bike shop did not secure my caliber back to my fork and it came off today at 35 mph. Great way to start out your morning. No damage to bike but the Mech may have some on Tues!!!!
Amen to KM`s comments.I learned to do my own wrenching from day one...about 40 years ago. After a good 2-4 years of this I found I could do anything a "competent" wrench could do at a bike shop. (Trouble was of course finding a "competent" wrench back then)
I even ended up working at a shop awhile as the owner noticed I knew more than the guy he just hired.
My view on this really has been that motorcycles really need to be maintained right, as many times much more than cars, your life kinda depends on it.
So , it boils down as to who you trust more with your life, yourself, or someone you likely do not even know?
