Speedo cable install help please

Postby miranda » Wed Mar 27, 2019 6:38 am

My '01 cable is fine but came detached at top end

I suffered through reaching up from bottom to reinsert shaft and then tighten bolt. Very difficult with large hands and age 78......

Is there an easier way to reconnect cable at top end?

Could I possibly remove right side of dash so as to get to upper speedo connection?

All ideas will be much appreciated

Hello.

There is only one way to tighten the speedometer knurled nut once it has come loose from the speedometer cluster and that is to disassemble the handlebar covers, remove maintenance cover, the windshield, and the top of the dash to get to it. See manual 13-4.

There is really another way if you have a long arm and strong thumb and forefinger

This is by reaching up from the bottom but it's impossible to get any tool up there to tighten

We've done this twice on my '01 but I respect what manual says.......I just hate to remove all that stuff

Thanks for giving the proper way.
