How do I change the speedometer

I have to change my speedo on my 1980 goldwing. Do I have to take the whole speedo/tach gauge unit off to do this? What bolts do I take off first to remove the speedometer?

SOURCE: 85 goldwing 1200 slave unit

no, but it is the easiest way. i dropped the engine out of mine in about 45 min. with a floor jack and some hand tools. The only special item i had was the most excellent honda workshop manual. i took mine out going after the stator, and its right next to the clutch. i looked at the clutch and decided this was the best way for this as well. in-chassis clutch work would involve removal of the fuel cell, swing arm and all components attached to them (pain).

hi,if it is anything like a 1200,they are normal left to undo and right to tighten,they will probably be very tight as honda locktite them in,they also have a woodruff key in them to locate the sprocket onto the camshaft,dont lose the key,they are a honda specific part and altough they are small they are quite expensive...cheers

Check your speedometer cable, detach it from the speedometer elevate the front wheel and spin it notice the inner cable if it turns or not, if not replace the cable if it spins then replace the speedometer.

Speedometer goldwing

Before you remove the instruments, check that the speedo drive cable is in one piece. There will be a knurled barrel on the back of the speedo, undo and pull the metal centre out. Then measure the length of the cable and check the length of the cable outer. if the inner is shorter, replace the inner.

The screws holding the face for my speedometer came out. Is there a way to take apart the speedo and fix the problem?

Typically the upper and lower half of the speedo and tach are held together with a metal band that is folded over the lips of the two halves. to separate you will have to carefully cut the band (usually on the bottom,towards you), peel it of trying not to kink it(save for later) and two halves should easily separate. Clean, lubricate,screw,etc. Put band back on, put a spot of glue at cut seam (only)and carefully wrap band with tape( electric works good)to hold speedo band and halves together.

Speedometer and tach stopped working 92 honda accord

Since the Speedo and Tach both quit working and they use separate sending units, I would be looking for a common electrical plug they share under the dash behind the speedo. When you find said plug check to make sure that it is plugged in securely. if it seems to be plugged in well unplug it and then replug it just in case the contacts were getting a bit dirty or corroded.

97 town and country LXI mini van speedometer and tach not working

the cluster needs to be calibrated to the pcm before the speedo and tach will work. You will have to take it to the dealer to have it done. The last time I had to do it, it cost me 70 dollars.

Tach and speedometer gauges intermittently stay at zero

Sounds like a problem in the cluster. These years of VW the clusters could be repared but by someone who knows what they are doing seeing it's printed boards.

1991 Dodge Daytona Speedometer and Odometer not working.

I had the same problem with my 90 daytona. The tach and the speedometer would work intermitantly. I took the whole gauge cluster out, and heated all the soldering with a solder gun to reflow the connections. It seems that this is a common problem with the connections cracking. You may not be able to see the cracks in the solder.
