Underneath the speedometer head is a knurled nut.It SHOULD unscrew by hand, but after 24 years, you may need a pair of pliers.At the other end of the cable is a nut, unscrew with a wrench.
When installing new cable, start at lower end.
You'll probably need to turn inner cable by hand to line up end of cable with receptacle in drive unit, then tighten nut.


At top end, install into speedo head unit, and tighten knurled nut.


You might want to grease cable before installation.
Inner cable should pull out of outer sheath housing from the top.
Grease all of inner cable EXCEPT for top (where it goes into speedo head) 6", so grease doesn't get into speedo head and gum up the works!

I have a 1990 Harley Davidson flhs. The air leaks out of the front suspension over a day. The fork seals are not leaking oil. The handle bar serves as the reservoir for the air. Any suggestions where the...


The leak most probably is coming from the seals at the "manifold" assemblies on the very top of the fork tubes. Replacement will require the windshield and speedometer to be removed for access to that area. Also check the hose that runs to the hadlebars are the might be a crack or small hole in it. BTW, while the system is supposed to be an "anti-dive" front end you will suffer no long term ill effects from having no air in it.
