Hi, On my way to Davis Rally my odometer quit, still got the speedometer though.is this an easy fix or should i wait tell riding season is over with/ Also have a spare dash that is good internally, but glass is bad also the outside case isnt the best . Rainy here so i got the time to fix if not to difficult. Thanks Yooper-Fred
Neil, So you said you replaced it with new what did you have to replace, please explain. Thanks Yup
The speedometer/odometer and the temp gauge come as one unit..... with the number plate and dials...the plastic lenses are part of the outside
Neil, Sounds like i can use the spare i have in that other dash just have to swap them , is that corect? Thanks Fred
That is correct.
One additional tip Fred, which may be obvious to most but it took me 3 replacement cables before I figured it out...........use Lock-Tite on the threads of the speedo cable on both ends (speedo and wheel connections). When it vibrates loose from the top end it's a real chore to retrieve it from inside the faring. When it vibrates loose from the front wheel the cable inside slides right out and you leave it behind on the street (if you're lucky and it doesn't end up tangled in your rear wheel or pipes).
I also found that it helps to get some model train drive gear grease and put on that plastic drive before it strips. Labells makes a good one and it should be avalaible at anf hobby shopthat sell model railroad stuff.
