SOURCE: How difficult is it to install a new speedometer

That is a fairly easy task.
Remove the speedo bezel, and disconnect the wires and the speedo cable.
Remove the rear seat, then remove the front seat.
Unbolt the gas tank, turn fuel off, disconnect fuel line, slide tank back then remove.
Unscrew speedo cable from speedo drive at front wheel axle.
Note routing of speedo cable, remove speedo cable, install new cable using same routing as old cable. You will probably have to spin the inner cable to get it to properly engage the drive mechanism at the bottom. If you install the bottom first, you can turn the cable at the top with your fingers until the bottom fully seats.
Give each fitting for the speedo cable a slight twist (1/8 of a turn past finger tight) with a pair of pliers so they don't come loose
Reinstall all remaining parts in reverse order of dis-assembly.

SOURCE: V-Star speedometer light

I have no experience with this model ... on the other hand, I have never seen a unlit speedometer on a motorcycle even going back to the 1957 Crushman scooter!.

SOURCE: I'm trying to change the speedometer light on my Yamaha VStar

Perusal of a parts manual shows the bulbs to be in sockets with wires hooked to them which press into the outer back of the speedometer head, remove the offending socket (the one on the top, the other 4 are the function lamps I previously mentioned) by gently pulling it outward, the bulb will slide out for replacement.
Have fun and good luck.

SPEEDOMETER WILL NOT ILLUMINATE 1989 CADILLAC ELDORADO


All instrument panel lights or just speedometer light? There are several bulbs behind instrument panel. More than likely, the bulb at speedometer is burned out, and can be replaced by removing instrument panel and replacing bulb(s). Hope this helps.

The instrument panel lights on my 2000 Nissan Quest have gone out. The light on the right side of the panel has been out for some time, but now the other light has gone as well. Can't see speedometer at...


you need to buy two light bulbs from any parts store. I believe part number is 194 for the bulbs. Remove the instrument panel from the vehicle by popping the bezel loose and removing retaining screws. Once screws are out remove the instrument panel and remove the bulbs and replace them.

Digital speedometer quit on a sukui svs 650


I always ride slightly faster than surrounding traffic so I am aware of My surroundings, that time you would take to see how fast youre going is how bikers die often, I learned to check my six or behind me, something I didnt do much until by chance happened to have used a car that night going home from work at midnight and got slammed by a drunk i saw coming but he drove into me anyways!
